Power Transmission for Light Rail Trains

Systems and components for light rail trains and tramways from Schunk Transit Systems



Little space, many vehicle variants and high loads - tough conditions under which our light rail solutions have to work reliably. In addition, they must be easy to maintain, keep costs low, and avoid downtime under all circumstances. A challenge that we are happy to take on.

From roof-mounted pantographs and grounding contacts to contact strips and wheel flange lubrication - mass transit demands a lot from our components and overall systems. But with us, you can cope with limited space in the bogie just as well as with the regular availability of spare parts. Even vagrant shaft currents, which can cause severe damage to bearings and drive shafts, lose their terror thanks to our retrofit portfolio of patented Carbon Fiber Grounding (CFG) systems. Rely on our combined mechanical engineering, manufacturing and materials know-how to create high-quality solutions.
