Oerlikon Graziano Extends Portfolio in Heavy-Duty Trucks
February 22, 2018—
Shifting Solutions is the development and production expertise that Oerlikon Graziano owns in the area of synchronization.
Oerlikon Drive Systems Segment, under its transmission specialist brand Oerlikon Graziano, is organizing a Technology Day together with Kamaz, a customer of Oerlikon in heavy-duty trucks. The event marks a stronger partnership between the two companies to jointly offer high-quality technology products to customers in Russia. Both companies plan to exploit further business opportunities in the CIS region and offer a more comprehensive set of services to current and new customers.
The partnership between both companies dates back more than ten years with the product lines – synchronizers and low floor bus axles. Currently the companies are exploring new opportunities of the cooperation on Shifting Solutions from Oerlikon Graziano.
Oerlikon Graziano is a provider of synchronizers for commercial vehicles and will demonstrate its latest heavy-duty strut-type components during the event. The high-torque units offer reduced shift effort and faster shift time, thus providing improved operator comfort and performance. A range of friction materials can be specified in single cone 184 or single-double cone 168-162/170 versions, depending on individual application needs. A range of crown wheel, bevel sets, ring and cylindrical gears, which complete the range of commercial vehicle technologies from Oerlikon Graziano, will also be shown.
In addition, the new Compact Slotless Synchronizer will be presented at the Technology Day. This synchronizer is used in diverse applications, such as passenger cars, tractors, trucks, industrial and construction vehicles, to improve the overall performance and efficiency of the transmissions. The advancements can be seen in the improved shiftability, increased power density and use of innovative friction materials specifically developed for heavy duty usage.
