April 7, 2016—
Oerlikon’s Drive Systems Segment, with its brand Oerlikon Graziano, will display its latest innovative shifting solutions for the commercial vehicles and construction equipment market at Bauma 2016, which takes place in Munich, Germany, April 11-17.

In the competitive commercial vehicles market, loader backhoe and telehandler market, the synchronizer of choice for the major OEMs is the Oerlikon Graziano high-torque strut type, which offers reduced shift effort and faster shift time, giving drivers greater vehicle control and improved productivity. Modular by design and available in single cone 153 or single-double cone 168-162/170 designation, the synchronizer can be specified with a range of friction material options for optimised performance, as determined by individual transmission requirements. The heavy-duty strut-type synchronizers can also provide an upgrade from traditional, less-efficient, pin-type units.

“Bauma 2016 is a key opportunity to showcase our technology capability to the commercial vehicle and construction industries, where our expanding range of strut-type synchronizers are already established as a popular choice for high-torque, on-highway and off-highway applications,” comments Gunnar Stein, chief technology officer, Oerlikon’s Drive Systems Segment. “The breadth of proven benefits delivered by Oerlikon Graziano strut-type synchronizers is synonymous with our drive to improve powertrain durability, efficiency and performance, and is supported by a bespoke design, validation and test service that can reduce costs and shorten development time.”

Technical highlights from Oerlikon Graziano include the company’s patented long-life synchronizer with increased durability, a wide range of powershift clutch solutions and the servo-synchronizer concept. Aimed at the truck and off-highway sectors, the servo-synchronizer uses self-energizing principles to deliver up to higher performance and lower drag torque than an equally sized double cone system of conventional design.
