InnoTrans 2014


Automotive and Industrial Experience utilized for Railway Technology

It is common knowledge, that railway technology has to cope with increasing competitive pressure in order to perform successfully in this market. Transport services for passengers and freight need to become even more efficient and economical, but also more environmentally friendly and resource-optimized. Stricter environmental regulations, such as the 2012 European exhaust emission standard Stage IIIB, as well as challenging logistical dynamics in times of globalization, contribute to forces that demand we reconsider current ways of thinking.

To meet this challenge and supply custom-tailored solutions for railway technology, Bosch Engineering and Bosch Rexroth take advantage of cross-industry and cross-technology approaches. We have decades of experience in automotive technologies, mobile equipment and industrial applications – all to the benefit of our railway customers.

Visit us from Sept 23 – 26, 2014 in Berlin at the trade fair InnoTrans in hall 20 at booth 204

At our booth we will demonstrate how you can stay ahead of your competition with diverse know-how, futuristic products, outstanding engineering competence and extensive service support.


  • Cooling Systems

    Energy-efficient Cooling Systems

    Cooling Systems

    New drive concepts necessitate new cooling systems. In close cooperation with Bombardier Transportation, Rexroth has developed a particularly compact and energy-efficient cooling solution for the hydraulic motors and power inverter of the diesel-electric multi-engine locomotive Traxx P160 DE ME. Sensors and individually customized controls ensure the hydrostatic and electric fans provide the required cooling performance on demand. Following Rexroth’s 4EE approach (Rexroth for Energy Efficiency), the cooling system utilizes every possible avenue to save energy and make optimal use of resources.

  • Traction and Auxiliary Drives

    Powerful Hydrostatic Traction and Auxiliary drives

    Traction and Auxiliary Drives

    Drives must meet multiple requirements in railway applications: They should deliver high performance even at low engine speeds, respond dynamically and facilitate smooth and expertly controlled motions. As the world’s largest supplier of components and systems for mobile equipment, our expertise is utilized in traction and auxiliary drives as integrated system solutions for railway technology as well. Our sophisticated systems are not only very powerful and economical, but also energy-efficient and suited to many different installation scenarios. Targeted application configurations, I.e. ECO mode or an anti-slip system, can be easily implemented and specifically adapted to customers’ systems.

  • Rexroth Service

    Rexroth Service – Your Key to Higher Productivity

    Rexroth Service

    In addition to a multitude of engineering competences, Rexroth experts offer comprehensive services to maximize availability of your rail vehicles’ entire life cycle: from prompt replacement of wear parts at regular maintenance intervals to cost-efficient repairs and obscure retrofit projects. As your technology partner, Rexroth offers obsolescence life cycle management optimized to ensure the long-term supply of spare parts all over the world.

  • Forward Collision Warning

    Forward looking Collision Warning for Light Rail Vehicles

    Collision Warning System

    The forward collision warning system from Bosch supports the driver of a light rail vehicle to avoid collisions, thus increasing safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians.  Lower cost of repair and shorter downtimes guarantee a fast amortization and higher lifecycle efficiency.  

    Bosch has more than 40 years of experience with surround sensing for driver assistance systems in automotive applications. Transfer from automotive and industrial technology ensures a proven, reliable and cost efficient solution for increasing safety of light rail vehicle operation today. The system solution is interesting both for new vehicles and as a retrofit package for updating existing fleets.
