DRIVE TECHNOLOGY - COMPRESSORS FOR RAILWAY VEHICLES
Railway vehicles require compressed air for a wide variety of tasks, ranging from opening automatic doors to operating the brakes. The performance requirements for a railway vehicle compressor are always increasing. Reliability is given top priority. This is where manufacturers rely on the years of experience and high level of quality found at R+W.
Depending on the requirements, the connection between the electric motor and the compressor is established using a torsionally stiff metal bellows coupling with an integrated flywheel. The flywheel stores kinetic energy and serves to stabilize the system.
