ZF Services Australia’s newest commercial vehicle transmission, Traxon, will make its official Australian debut at the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show.

Traxon is an automatic transmission system aimed at modern trucks.

According to ZF, the Traxon’s modular design is a world first, meeting the commercial vehicle market’s requirements for a versatile, flexible solution.

ZF says the design enables the basic transmission to be combined with various setting-off and shift modules, making it more economical in practice, aimed at giving manufacturers and operators the best possible flexibility for every application as well as increasing driver comfort.

The new Traxon transmission system’s compact and robust design is claimed to keep operating and service costs down throughout its entire lifetime.

ZF says its innovative software is a feature of the transmission, combining the predictive shifting strategy, PreVision GPS, as well as a rolling and rock-the-vehicle-free function.

It offers 12 or 16 forward gears and up to four reverse gears. ZF adds that Traxon is suitable for torque requirements of up to 3,400Nm and can be linked to five modules, making it suitable for diverse functions from long-distance transport to construction site applications.

The Traxon will be part of the ZF Services Australia display at stand 54 during the 2017 Brisbane Truck Show which runs from May 25 to 28.
