“Excon India was the perfect
platform for us to showcase our well established power-shift driveline
technology for construction machinery, reducing emissions significantly and
fulfilling the new TIER 4 emission norms already today. Manufacturing axles and
transmissions in Coimbatore, we are also committed to “Make in India”. On top
of this, we wanted to talk about Intelligent Mechanical Systems and how ZF is
able to enhance existing mechanical drivelines with electrified components,
assistance- or safety functions like GPS, radar, sensor and camera systems.
This is how our systems expertise will enable vehicles to see>think>and act”,
says Alexander Eisner, Head of Product Communications for Off-Highway Systems
