Traction Drive

Take it all – TSA has your gearbox, too

TSA has been producing gear units for more than 20 years. Within this time period, we have manufactured more than 3,000 gear units. In the past, TSA has partnered with almost all European gearbox suppliers, and we understand the challenges that are involved with integrating components from two different suppliers.

We offer a complete drive system with a TSA-designed helical gearbox. We are your partner for an optimized traction drive system because we understand electric motors and gearboxes thoroughly.

‘It is possible to source motors and gears from different places.
Or you can get them from us as one perfectly functioning unit.’

Why choose a TSA Traction Drive for your vehicle?

Because we consider the entire vehicle and its complete electric drive system, not only the individual components.

We help you choose the right drive system for your specific needs. TSA provides technical consultation in accordance to our customers’ requirements. We optimize motor and gearbox at the same time. We also consider the needs from each component and we engineer each component to work most efficiently in a complete drive solution.
