Suspension Components and Systems

Modern chassis technology for rail vehicles should be quiet, comfortable, reliable and environment-friendly. No easy undertaking when you consider the inherent technical challenges. Here‘s an example: In passenger transport, trains are now very much holding their own against airlines. However, once traveling at more than 250 kilometers an hour (>150 mph), wear and maintenance costs of rolling stock and the rail system rise almost exponentially. As a technology leader, ZF is also setting new standards here, and offers perfectly matched damping components and system for all types of rail vehicle.
