ZF spon­sors crane con­fer­ence

Motor Equipment News - - DIESEL INDUSTRY NEWS -

ZF Ser­vices Aus­tralia has demon­strated its long-term com­mit­ment to the lo­cal crane in­dus­try with spon­sor­ship of the re­cent Crane In­dus­try Coun­cil of Aus­tralia’s (CICA) an­nual con­fer­ence.

Held in Cairns from Septem­ber 15-17, the 2016 CICA Con­fer­ence marked ZF’s third con­sec­u­tive show­ing at the event and its sec­ond as a con­fer­ence spon­sor.

The cen­tre piece of ZF’s stand was its com­pre­hen­sive trans­mis­sion of­fer­ings, in­clud­ing the mar­ket-lead­ing 12-speed ZF-AS Tronic trans­mis­sion fit­ted with op­tional ZF-In­tarder, the wear-free hy­dro­dy­namic aux­il­iary brake.

As a pop­u­lar OE fit­ment in heavy com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle ap­pli­ca­tions, the ZF-AS Tronic trans­mis­sion is per­fectly suited to mo­bile cranes to move quickly, safely and eco­nom­i­cally through in­creased per­for­mance.

Also on dis­play was ZF’s gen­uine com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle lu­bri­cant, Ecofluid M, which has been de­vel­oped in uni­son with the AS Tronic trans­mis­sion to de­crease main­te­nance and op­er­at­ing costs as well as in­crease per­for­mance.

ZF pre­viewed the fu­ture of com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle trans­mis­sion tech­nol­ogy with Shane Tren­bath, tech­ni­cal ser­vices man­ager, dis­cussing with del­e­gates ZF’s suc­ces­sor of the AS-Tronic, the rev­o­lu­tion­ary TraXon au­to­matic trans­mis­sion plat­form.

“With sev­eral mod­ules for dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions, the TraXon trans­mis­sion plat­form will sat­isfy the most chal­leng­ing re­quire­ments, whether it’s fit­ted to a mo­bile crane on a work­site or on the road,” Shane Tren­bath said.

“TraXon has been de­vel­oped to live up to fu­ture needs, de­liv­er­ing more per­for­mance with less fuel con­sump­tion and more ap­pli­ca­tion di­ver­sity with less cus­tomi­sa­tion ef­fort.”

Prod­ucts from other ZF brands on dis­play in­cluded also Lem­förder steer­ing and sus­pen­sion prod­ucts.

“Not only does ZF sup­ply trans­mis­sions for cranes, but we have avail­able the full ser­vice of­fer­ing. All of our prod­ucts come with ZF’s prod­uct qual­ity guar­an­tee and are fully sup­ported 24/7 through our Tech­ni­cal Sup­port hot­line,” Shane con­tin­ued.

In ad­di­tion to work­shops and dis­tri­bu­tion hubs in Sydney and Perth, a tech­ni­cal sup­port team is lo­cated in Mel­bourne and Bris­bane, as­sisted by strate­gi­cally sit­u­ated ser­vice part­ners across Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

ZF Ser­vices Aus­tralia’s lo­cal fa­cil­i­ties fea­ture fac­tory trained tech­ni­cians, spe­cial­ist di­ag­nos­tic and test equip­ment, backed up with ZF’s re­man­u­fac­ture war­ranty and gen­uine ZF Parts.
