Since 1959, development and manufacture of shafts for agricultural and –building machinery and for special purpose vehicles has been the first business field of the government owned IFA affiliate in Haldensleben.
The product group IFA-Kardan covers this business field until this day. Examples for applications are main and secondary drives in wheel loaders, wheel excavator, dumpers, street asphalt layers, telescope loaders, tractors, harvesters or cutters. IFA-Kardan configures drive shafts using a predefined set of shafts, simulates their function, builds samples and validates their function and durability acc. to specifications supplied by the customers.
Well-known customers trust in products of IFA-Kardan. Durability Depending on the specified shaft weight limit, the shafts can be designed to endure an infinite number of load cycles or to endure a limited, specified number of load cycles. Shafts for passenger cars always have a limited number of load cycles in order to meet the specified weight limit. Permanently durable IFA-Kardan designs are heavier than comparable designs for passenger cars and they are maintenance-free independently of the lifetime of the vehicle.
