- DEUTZ TCD 9.0 one of the Top Ten New Products of 2017
- Compact and efficient four-cylinder in-line engine generates 300 kW and 1,700 Nm of torque
- The TCD 9.0 extends the upper limit of DEUTZ’s power range as part of a new engine platform
The trade magazine OEM Off-Highway has put the DEUTZ TCD 9.0 engine in fourth place in its list of the Top Ten New Products of 2017. This prominent international publication reports on all topics related to the development of heavy-duty machinery in the off-highway sector. The rankings are based on the number of searches and page views made by users of the OEM Off-Highway Component Directory, its online purchasing resource.
The TCD 9.0 four-cylinder in-line engine, which was unveiled to the world at bauma China in Shanghai, is one of four new engines from DEUTZ that mark another significant extension to the upper end of its power range. The TCD 9.0, which produces 300 kW of power and 1,700 Nm of torque, forms part of a family of engines together with the TCD 12.0 (400 kW / 2,500 Nm) and TCD 13.5 (450 kW / 2,800 Nm) six-cylinder in-line engines. All three models work on the same platform, with a standardised customer interface and identical front and rear sides, making it considerably easier to integrate and service the engines. The proportion of common parts is approximately 65 percent, which reduces servicing complexity and optimises inventories. The 620 kW six-cylinder TCD 18.0 in-line engine, which generates 3,600 Nm of torque, will occupy the upper end of the power output range. With these engines, DEUTZ is specifically catering for heavy-duty construction equipment with high output and torque requirements. It will go into volume production from 2019 in time for EU Stage V.
“The Top Ten New Products are a reflection of the most searched and sought-after technologies in the heavy-duty mobile vehicle markets,” says Michelle Kopier, Editor and Associate Publisher of OEM Off-Highway magazine and OEMOffHighway.com. “The winning products emphasise what types of products and brands the product development team members are looking for during the research and development phase of vehicle design at the OEM.”
Michael Wellenzohn, member of the DEUTZ AG Board of Management for Sales/Service and Marketing: “We are delighted to have received this accolade, which demonstrates the high level of interest on the part of specialist audience. We also see it as confirmation that the extension of our upper power range means we now have the right products for the market.”
In the upper power output range, DEUTZ’s powerful new in-line diesel engines present the ideal solution for heavy-duty applications from both a technical and commercial perspective. In the lower power output range, DEUTZ will also offer electric drive systems in future under its E-DEUTZ strategy. Customers will be able to choose whatever is the optimum combination of conventional and electric drive components for their particular application. By significantly improving emissions and efficiency, DEUTZ is aiming to be the market leader for innovative drive systems in the off-highway sector and hopes to steal a march on the competition.
