Fluid Couplings

The hydrodynamic principle of a fluid coupling makes it easy to gently accelerate driven machines. At the same time, fluid couplings limit torque, provide load sharing, and dampen torsional vibrations.

Voith offers fluid couplings and solutions for highly efficient and reliable drive system solutions for the mining industry and the handling of raw materials, speed control of pumps and fans.
The coupling protects the drive system from damage even under extreme operating conditions. This reduces down time and ensures a continuous production process.

Our drive solutions are reliable and specifically tailored to each drive system – from individual couplings to complete driveline solutions.

The transmittable power ranges from 300 W up to 6 MW.

Mining and Steel Industry

Reliable and robust driveline solutions are essential for equipment used in highly demanding, high productivity and technically advanced applications. Voith can provide the components, the engineering and service know-how to achieve reliable performance under these arduous or hazardous conditions.
Voith manufacture a range of products that offer specific benefits to the driveline. These include fluid couplings for a soft start of high inertia machinery, highly flexible couplings to tune the resonant frequency of a drive line away from its operating speed range. HyCon, HyGrip and HyLoc couplings offer quick setting, backlash free connection. Safeset offers protection to the driveline and connected equipment from potential damaging torque spikes and cardan shafts to transmit torque between the driving and driven components.

A drive system selected by Voith could contain any number of our key products selected from our proven experience and advanced selection methods, selected specifically to meet you’re highly demanding requirements.

A drive system from Voith will help you avoid unplanned down time, increase your productivity and reduce your life cycle cost.

A drive system from Voith is “Engineered Reliability”.

Commercial Vehicles

Economical drive systems
DIWA Transmission for buses
The Voith DIWA Bus transmission is supplied to transport operators and OEMs throughout the world. They have proven themselves in large city applications and are perfectly matched for all EURO 6 engine applications. We match the driveline components to optimise drivability and maximise fuel consumption.
Automatic Transmissions
The commercial vehicle team in the UK provide a transmission service exchange (SX) program that incorporates a fully rebuilt and warranted replacement bus transmission backed up by our OEM warranty. Voith SX transmissions are rebuilt to factory standards by the original manufacturer using genuine original parts. Each transmission is upgraded to the latest configuration and is thoroughly tested in our state of the art facility in Croydon.


Retarders for Coaches and Trucks
Hydrodynamic retarders work virtually wear-free. They do not lock, overheat or fade. This enables vehicles to reach higher average speeds while safety is increased; the service brakes are fully operational at all times and last considerably longer. The smooth braking of even the heaviest masses and the remarkable continuous braking power of the retarder make it an important safety factor for coaches and trucks. As of today, more than 500 000 Voith retarders have been supplied worldwide.


Hydrodamp Torsional Vibration Dampers
The introduction of low-emission engines with high torques has sharply increased drive line vibrations. With the Voith Hydrodamp, a highly elastic torsional vibration damper, drive lines can be designed which produce less vibrations and noise. The Hydrodamp is an active contribution to the protection of our environment. It allows driving in the lower speed range which results in reduced fuel consumption and increased service life of the drive line itself.


Compressor LP490 and LP700
Traveling economically and saving the environment. Auxiliary units such as Voith air compressors in trucks and buses can contribute significantly to this. The Voith two-stage compressor with inter-cooling system requires significantly reduced power uptake during transport operation. The LP490 and LP700 compressor is available with major European engine manufacturers for Euro 6 applications.
