Walterscheid Powertrain Group.29.03.2022
Leading attachment systems and drive solutions for agricultural machinery.Walterscheid, founded in 1919 and based in Lohmar, is a real insider in the field of agricultural technology. Thanks to decades of manufacturing experience, Walterscheid technology can now be found in the agricultural machinery of all well-known manufacturers. With over 2,000 employees, nine production sites in Germany, Italy, the USA, China, Brazil and Japan and seven strong brands in its portfolio, the Walterscheid Powertrain Group operates successfully on the global market.
The company develops tractor attachment systems and complete drive systems from proven components such as drive shafts, trailer technology and couplings, in which, for example, the shaft train, overload protection and transmission form an integrated overall concept.
Walterscheid's technology is always optimally tailored to the various areas of application. This consistent application orientation ensures maximum cost-effectiveness and functionality, as there are no interface losses and no adaptations are required. The company can thus guarantee its customers all over the world strong performance, long service life and absolute reliability of all product solutions.
The corporate philosophy is characterised by thinking and acting for sustainable development at all levels of the company. The declared goal is not short-term trends and quick economic success, but sustainable strategies and concepts. In this way, Walterscheid achieves a balance between economic success and the responsible handling of the resources, employees, customers and business partners entrusted to it.
In sealing technology, ttv is a strong supplier partner for Walterscheid.
The cooperation, which began around 10 years ago, has been significantly intensified since 2018 and now includes products such as end caps, O-rings, X-rings, shaft seals, bearing seals and gamma seals. The ttv products are installed in Walterscheid transmission units, where they perform a small but extremely important task for the perfect function and quality of drive systems for agricultural, construction and special machinery.
Katrin Wolf, Regional Buyer Europe at Walterscheid, also sees this potential:
"What we really appreciate about ttv is the high level of reliability and on-time processing of the agreed orders, as well as the special ability for application-specific solutions. Therefore, we are looking forward to expanding our cooperation with new challenging projects."
This is achieved through the highest material quality and a multitude of coordinated product details, including special seals. For ttv Managing Director Harald Nitzschke and Volker Hirsch, Team Leader Sales Industry, the cooperation with Waltenscheid is of enormous importance.
Walterscheid's quality standards and sustainability philosophy are a perfect match for our company, says Harald Nitzschke, who would like to expand the partnership further in the coming years.
One of ttv's distinctive strengths is its engineering solutions, which are used to develop and produce product solutions optimised for specific applications and customers. The best example of this is an end cap with a special bore hole as a special solution for Walterscheid.
But concrete new solutions are also already in the test phase. Shaft sealing rings and end caps with aluminium and sealing lacquer on the outer diameter are to be ordered soon.
