Allison Transmission to Showcase its Industry-Leading Off-Highway Fully Automatic Transmission Series at Bauma CHINA 2020

Inner Mongolia North Hauler

 From wide body mining dumps to autonomous driving rigid dumps, Allison Transmission offers OEMs and fleets a wide range of fully automatic transmissions with extraordinary performance, durability, productivity and reliability. 

SHANGHAI – November, 2020 – Allison Transmission will exhibit its Off-Highway Series™ of fully automatic transmission models and the latest technology at Bauma CHINA 2020, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery (Nov. 24-27; Hall 5, booth 548, SNIEC). 

As the world’s largest manufacturer of fully automatic transmissions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, Allison offers unrivalled reliability and power for the toughest applications of wide body mining dumps (WBMD), autonomous driving rigid dumps, all terrain mobile cranes, concrete mixers and construction specialty trucks. Allison’s booth (548) will feature transmissions designed for a wide range of off-highway applications as well as interactive digital technology to explain the working principles and benefits of fully automatic transmissions. 

Allison fully automatic transmissions are built to perform in the toughest conditions. They feature our Continuous Power Technology™, which provides more power to the wheels letting you handle anything your worksite throws at you. Allison Automatics accelerate faster with 14% higher average speed than a manual or automated manual. They also offer vehicles better control, traction and maneuverability on loose soil. Our innovative Power Take Off (PTO) features integrated one-touch power for accessories and with tailored shift-points through our proprietary FuelSense® 2.0 software, enabling fleets to improve fuel economy and performance based on their own specific duty cycle needs. 

Shandong Pengxiang Auto is a leading manufacturer of off-highway dump trucks in China and has produced their customized wide body mining dump (WBMD) truck equipped with an Allison transmission. Their two new models, GVW 90 Ton and 96 Ton are coupled with a 382.4kW diesel engine rated at 2402Nm torque and an Allison 4800ORS-PR fully automatic transmission are very popular in open-pit mines which are characterized by short range, heavy load and harsh off road conditions. To allow the truck is able to negotiate steep grades smoothly when fully-loaded, the Allison 4800ORS-PR transmission provides the optimal torque for uninterrupted power to the wheels. With an integral hydraulic retarder, it provides additional auxiliary braking when going downhill thus, assisting driver control. It is easy to operate, reducing driver fatigue and significantly improving productivity. No mechanical clutches mean less wear and tear. Normal maintenance requires only periodic fluid and filter changes. With high performance and low maintenance cost, Allison fully automatic transmissions are naturally the preferred choice for WBMD. 

In order to increase productivity, reduce costs and relieve working pressure on drivers, Inner Mongolia North Hauler Joint Stock Co. Ltd (NHL) has just delivered 18 Autonomous Driving NTR 100A rigid mining dump trucks to Conch Cement in August this year. The NTR 100A is equipped with a Cummins QST30 rated at 783kW (1050 HP) with 4629Nm torque and the Allison 8610 Off- Road Series™ (ORS) fully automatic transmission which allows autonomous driving to be carried out on rigid mining trucks. These trucks, supported by the Allison Automatic, can be operated every day in more demanding and hazardous conditions, while addressing the shortage of drivers and eliminating human operational errors..
