Customised Solutions: Powertrain

Drive solutions with diesel power units for special applications (rail, agriculture...)

When it's a matter of upgrading rail vehicles with new engines: As experts in MTU railway engines and gensets, we provide our customers with the advice and support they need, from planning to commissioning, using our own staff. Rail companies and rail vehicle manufacturers, as well as our long term partner MTU, rely on our "railway skills".  Reference: four MTU PowerPacks 1800 Series for the track maintenance vehicles of the Hungarian State Railways.

We help vehicle manufacturers choose the right engine and also apply our expertise to the planning, implementation and commissioning of prototypes. An example would be equipping the prototype of a wood chipper (Agriculture) with an MTU engine in compliance with the latest emission standards.

Drive solutions with Allison Transmission fully automatic transmissions for special vehicles

We help customers who are developing prototypes to choose the right transmission and design the complete drive, including cooling system. The calculations required for the installation of the drive are performed with the help of a tried-and-tested planning tool.

We are there to supervise the proper installation of the transmission during assembly. This also allows us to collect relevant information for the approvals and to answer customer-specific questions. After the prototype has been approved we can also produce small series.

If you plan to equip your existing vehicles with a new drive (repowering), K & W Drive Systems will help you plan the best use of your available space. We will also assist you in finding the corresponding specialist suppliers for other transmission and general powertrain components.
