Hybrid technologies among driveline solutions from Oerlikon
Oerlikon, Fairfield and Oerlikon Graziano are keen to demonstrate a range of high-tech driveline solutions to OEMs. Oerlikon Fairfield in particular is working on a range of modular hybrid technologies, with motors integrated into the gearbox that could be used to drive compact tracked loaders and other small machinery. Oerlikon Graziano is focussing on shifting solutions, with new hydraulic powershift clutch modules on offer to deliver improved driver comfort and reduced component wear.
In both cases the company is keen to deliver complete driveline solutions for OEMs, offering everything up to the back of the engine. This includes a new family of torque hubs and wheel drives with integrated hydraulic motors. Oerlikon currently has two dedicated hybrid drivelines in test with manufacturers.
