Reliable connections are a prerequisite for future rail-based mobility. Different rail vehicles use different drive technologies, and each type also requires an application-specific, intelligently designed and powerful coupling system.
With our solutions for the rail industry, we are experts at transforming classical mechanical engineering into high end technology. In Japan, for example, our compact vibration damping elastomer couplings ensure speed, safety, reliability and comfort on the aerodynamic Shinkansen high speed train that connects the metropolises of Aomori and Tokyo. Time and again R+W couplings eliminated resonance for smooth running.
