High-end technology for rail vehicles.
Rapid high-speed trains connect our major cities, comfortable regional trains provide a link to local towns, zippy LRVs and elegant monorails sail through the urban traffic. Robust freight cars and powerful locomotives are indispensable for transporting goods, while special vehicles such as track-laying trains keep the rail infrastructure in good repair.
The demands of all these different applications are as diverse as the local environments in which they are implemented. A system’s exact design will depend on whether it is intended for use in earthquake zones, hot and humid urban jungles, extremely low temperatures or dusty desert conditions. Knorr-Bremse develops bespoke solutions for every application, based on tried-and-tested, innovative technologies. This approach has created close and enduring partnerships that have benefited not only our customers but all transportation users.
Rail transportation has never been more diverse than it is today. As a supplier of subsystems for virtually all rail vehicle applications, Knorr-Bremse is a key partner for vehicle manufacturers and operators. As a developer and manufacturer of safety-critical products, our uncompromising commitment to quality is always our number-one priority when meeting this wide range of different requirements.
