DRIVE TECHNOLOGY - COMPRESSOR FOR RAILWAY VEHICLES
Railway vehicles require compressed air for a wide variety of tasks, ranging from opening doors automatically to operating the brakes. The requirements for a railway vehicle compressor are high. Reliability is given top priority. This is where manufacturers rely on the years of experience and the level of quality found at R+W.
The connection between the electric motor and the compressor is established using a torsion-resistant metal-bellows coupling with an integrated flywheel, depending on the requirement. The flywheel stores the kinematic energy on the one hand and serves to stabilize the system on the other.
