Voith passes 300 mark for stop-start gearboxes

Voith continues to set the pace for stop-start gearbox compatibility

Over 300 Voith DIWA.6 gearboxes with stop-start technology are now in service in the UK.

Sales and Marketing Manager John Domigan says that all so far are coupled to Cummins Euro 6 engines, but Voith is now working with OEMs that use Daimler power units to extend the concept.

“One early adopter estimates a fuel consumption saving of around 9% for a stop-start driveline, of which Voith’s direct contribution is around 4%,” adds Mr Domigan.

“Further fuel consumption improvements are planned for our DIWA.6 range in 2017 which will be announced in due course.”
