ZF gets the mix right

Motor Equipment News - - DIESEL INDUSTRY NEWS -

For more than 25 years, ZF has de­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured driv­e­line sys­tems and axles for con­struc­tion ma­chines, fast ce­ment­ing its po­si­tion as one of the world’s lead­ing sup­pli­ers to the in­dus­try.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers from the USA, to Europe, to Asia as well as Aus­tralia con­tinue to put their trust in the high qual­ity orig­i­nal equip­ment mixer trans­mis­sions from ZF, with the Ger­man pow­er­house brand ful­fill­ing their OE de­mands through con­tin­u­ous prod­uct in­no­va­tion.

Lead­ing ZF’s prod­uct of­fer­ings in the field is its in­no­va­tive Ecomix II trans­mis­sion, more com­monly known as CML (Con­crete Mixer Lowspeed).

Up to 50 per­cent smaller and 24 per­cent lighter in com­par­i­son to con­ven­tional mixer drives, the Ecomix II gives mixer bowl man­u­fac­tur­ers more de­sign free­dom and a sim­pli­fied in­stal­la­tion

Not just smaller and lighter, Ecomix II is also tougher, of­fers more flex­i­ble in­stal­la­tion and is qui­eter, eas­ier to ser­vice and more ef­fi­cient

Avail­able in three sizes, CML 10, CML 12 and CML 16, the range caters for drum ca­pac­i­ties from 8 cu.m up to 16m cu.m, with a max­i­mum out­put of up to 90,000Nm.

In 2016, ZF Ser­vices Aus­tralia an­nounced a part­ner­ship with Cesco, the na­tion’s lead­ing con­crete bowl man­u­fac­turer, to fit the Ecomix II trans­mis­sion in its mix­ers.

“We have part­nered with Cesco on var­i­ous projects for over 20 years and when we wanted to trial pilot units of the Ecomix II in the lo­cal in­dus­try, Cesco was the first com­pany we thought of as both of our com­pa­nies pos­sess in­no­va­tive and tech­nol­ogy lead­ing at­ti­tudes,” Mikael Olin, re­gional oe sales & tech­ni­cal sup­port ex­ec­u­tive, ZF Ser­vices Aus­tralia said.

“Firstly, the Ecomix II CML 12 was in­stalled in Cesco’s 12m3 mix­ers, shortly fol­lowed by in­stal­la­tion of the CML 10 into its stan­dard pre­mium mixer range.

“Feed­back from Cesco has been ex­tremely pos­i­tive with cus­tomers re­port­ing re­duc­tions in fuel and main­te­nance costs and im­pres­sive user ben­e­fits with more pay­load ca­pa­bil­ity due to re­duced weight in the CML and a new Cesco de­signed bowl that fur­ther re­duces weight.”
