Allison Transmission introduced the 6630ORS, its newest Off-Highway Series™ model, and highlighted new applications with Bell Equipment at Bauma 2016 this week in Munich. The 6630ORS fully automatic transmission is an evolution of the 6000 Off-Highway Series, offering increased durability and performance. It contains a new internal damper and updated torque converter turbine with improved vane geometry and anodized surface treatment.Responding to growing customer demand for articulated haulers with larger payloads, the 55 t capacity Volvo A60H has been developed incorporating the Allison 6630ORS, which was on display at Bauma 2016. “Renowned worldwide for working hard over a long service life with minimum downtime and high productivity, Allison transmissions are an ideal match for vehicles in this demanding application.”Additionally, Bell Equipment showcased its first B45E with an Allison 4700ORS model, which along with its B40E and B50E models, will be moving from a 6-speed to the 7-speed transmission. “This brings improved gradeability due to the deep first range and smaller ratio steps, resulting in even better performance and fuel efficiency.” Bell also presented the new B60E articulated dump truck with the Allison 4800ORS model and B30E with the Allison 3500ORS with retarder.Allison’s booth featured a MAN TGS 40.480 60W 6×6 mining truck with a 4500 model transmission, which was built for a construction end-user in Russia. Bauma 2016 attendees also had the opportunity to see a number of Allison-equipped vehicles on display. Among these trucks are a Terex TR70 rigid hauler with the Allison 6620ORS and TA400 articulated hauler with the Allison 4500ORS. Additionally, KH Kipper displayed a MAN TGS 40.480 60W 6×6 with mining body and an Allison 4500 model transmission.
