The Commercial Vehicle Solutions (CVS) division of ZF has reached a significant production milestone for its TraXon transmission system. The 1 millionth unit was recently manufactured at the Friedrichshafen assembly line.
Winfried Gründler, who leads the driveline systems product line for ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Solutions division, highlighted TraXon's industry-leading status due to its exceptional design, reliability, and ability to enhance energy efficiency. This makes TraXon an invaluable solution for commercial vehicle owners in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Notably, just a year ago, TraXon reached the 500,000-unit milestone, primarily produced at the Friedrichshafen main plant. However, global expansion led to production at ZF's facilities in Jiaxing (China) and Sorocaba (Brazil). In a mere 18 months, production doubled to meet the increasing demand for efficient systems worldwide.
Building upon the technological excellence of the TraXon system, ZF is preparing for the launch of its successor, TraXon 2, set for series production in 2024. TraXon 2 will feature further innovations, including ZF's in-house mechatronics and a new electronic control unit. The latter will enable new software functions with remarkable computing power, such as cybersecurity measures and over-the-air updates via mobile communications and WLAN.
