ZF expands aftermarket portfolio

by Today's Trucking

ZF has unveiled a series of aftermarket offerings for commercial vehicles, including collision mitigation retrofit kits, Cummins reman air compressors, and automatic slack adjusters.

The products emerge through ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Control Systems Division, which was established last May when ZF acquired Wabco last May. The Wabco product brand remains intact.

Among the latest products are Cummins remanufactured air compressors, which ZF says are guaranteed to provide original equipment equivalent performance. Other Wabco Reman Solutions products include air dryers, automated manual transmissions, hydraulic power brake systems, and Enhanced Easy-Stop trailer antilock brakes.

Five new retrofit kits have also been added to the OnGuardActive retrofit portfolio, enabling fleets to install the advanced active safety technology on most Model Year 2013-20 Freightliner P3 Cascadias. The radar-based system can help drivers recognize and respond to potentially dangerous driving scenarios involving moving or stationary vehicles in front of their trucks.

Wabco EasyFit Automatic Slack Adjusters, meanwhile, can automatically compensate for brake lining wear, so the stroke of the brake cylinders remains unchanged. They are also powder-coated to protect against corrosion.

Quick and easy to install, the adjusters are designed to be maintenance-free, featuring a sealed, lubricated-for-life housing, ZF says.

The manufacturer is also launching a TRW All Makes Remanufactured Steering Gear program to offer a range of steering gears to complement ZF’s Genuine TRW Remanufactured Steering gears. In the independent aftermarket, the Genuine TRW Power Steering Pump Program is available in 31 part numbers, offering coverage for 80% of applications.
