Test benches - A dialog with the transmission

Your benefits at a glance

With a ZF test bench and the ZF Testman diagnostic software with optional test bench application, you can constantly keep an eye on your transmission that is being tested.

Integrated metrology provides rapid, easy access to all performance-related data and 100% service-relevant checks of your remanufactured transmission and detailed, precise troubleshooting. The test bench system developed in-house and marketed by ZF is easy to use.

For each transmission you have a transmission-specific testing procedure and regular updates.

Individual solutions for your transmission

Disover the range of test benches

Depending on the transmission type, the test run is conducted and documented on the basis of a test record. The information and measurement data required for the testing procedure are either displayed on the test bench console or by ZF Testman, and can be adjusted individually.

A semi-automated test run is possible with certain transmission types. Here the system stores and logs all measurement data.
