Press releases (09/19/16) Oerlikon Drive Systems demonstrates newly updated commercial vehicles range at IAA Hanover

New ATV (all-terrain vehicle) differential-equipped demonstrator vehicle unveiled

Rivoli (Italy), 19th September 2016 – Oerlikon Drive Systems, under its Oerlikon Graziano brand, will showcase its extensive drivetrain capability at IAA Commercial Vehicles Hanover, on September 22-29 (21st Press Day). Latest electric and hybrid transmissions, an inverted portal axle for low floor city buses, high performance transmission components and shifting solutions expertise will be displayed at Booth A29, Hall 13 throughout the show. The driveline specialist will also debut its new ATV differential unit in a demonstrator vehicle.

Oerlikon Drive Systems aim is to demonstrate the diversity of technology at IAA Commercial Vehicles Hanover and its commitment towards improving efficiency, reducing emissions and enhancing performance, without passing unnecessary costs on to manufacturers. This event, the largest trade show of its type in the world, is the perfect opportunity to showcase Oerlikon Drive Systems’ complete range of commercial vehicle powertrain solutions to the widest possible audience.

Oerlikon Drive Systems’ new ATV (all-terrain vehicle) differential unit is fitted to a demonstrator vehicle for the first time at IAA Hanover. The vehicle, Defender HD8, is able to benefit from Oerlikon Graziano’s know-how in terms of design, develop and complete tests generated and strengthened in two decades of experience.

As a demonstration of Oerlikon Drive Systems’ hybrid and electric transmission technology capability the company will be showing its OGeco and two- and four-speed electric drives (2SED, 4SED). OGeco is a hybrid transmission originally developed for performance car use, which has now been adapted for commercial vehicle applications. 2SED and 4SED are multi-speed electric drives that can provide motive power for an electric minivan and light commercial vehicles, improving efficiency and reducing reliance on internal combustion engines. The third technology on display is a highly efficient inline epicyclic transmission, FUSO, which is developed for light commercial vehicle use.

The inverted portal axle for low floor city buses up to 13 tons is of modular design, suitable for twin- or single-tyre applications and featuring an optional ‘dead axle’ for articulated vehicles. It offers the benefit of reduced noise levels thanks to innovative technologies and manufacturing techniques, such as side gear cases with power-split concept and four helical gears per axle side. The unit is available with disc or drum brakes and offers easy maintenance and serviceability. 

Oerlikon Drive Systems is leading provider of synchronizers for commercial vehicles and will demonstrate its latest heavy-duty strut-type components at the show. The high-torque units offer reduced shift effort and faster shift time, providing improved operator comfort and performance. A range of friction materials can be specified in single cone 153 or single-double cone 168-162/170 designation, depending on individual application needs. A range of crown wheel, ring and cylindrical gears will also be on display to demonstrate the company’s complete range of commercial vehicle technologies.

IAA Hanover is the 66th IAA Commercial Vehicles event and the leading international trade fair for mobility, transportation and logistics.

During the IAA Hanover show, Technical staff and Top Management will be available to answer any question regarding the technologies.
