InnoTrans 2016



Know-how leveraged to lower life cycle cost for railway applications

Rail operators are under constant pressure to find ways to reduce the cost per kilometer travelled. These costs start with energy consumption, include a wide range of various ongoing maintenance expenses and extend through to the modernization of older rail vehicles. Increasing demands for greater safety and product availability contribute to these challenges. Bosch Rexroth has established itself as a tried and true partner with industry proven components and global railway system solutions.

Bosch Rexroth’s big advantage: Industrial experience gained by similar series production techniques, large plant construction and mobile machinery components. We transfer this experience to our solutions for the railway industry and develop innovative systems and components for rail vehicle manufacturers and vehicle operators. This experience translates into advantages for our customers: Shorter time to market, competitive cost and superior quality due to series component production, worldwide support and a globally respected business partner.

  • Tilting technology

    Digital hydraulics enhances tilting technology reliability

    Tested and proven under the harshest conditions: Collaborating with scientists of the Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Rexroth developed a digital-hydraulic tilting system technology for the Finnish National Railway, used as a retrofit kit in high-speed trains. Trains equipped with this retrofit kit deliver much greater up-time when compared to the original servo valve solution, as digital hydraulics are very robust. Even in the case of individual valve failure, the inherent redundancy still provides sufficient tilting function. The train can continue on, maintaining the intended speed and meeting the schedule. In addition, digital hydraulics reduces operating costs by providing higher energy efficiency combined with reduced maintenance and down-time.

  • Cooling modules

    Modular cooling modules creates more economic designs

    Railway vehicles are complicated, and designing the myriad of sub-assemblies required to manufacture and assemble one, is a daunting task. As system partner, Bosch Rexroth helps keep the project-specific engineering expenses to a minimum. Rexroth cooling modules consist of approved and tested components and satisfy all relevant European railway standards. Cooling capacity is multiplied are combining standardized modules. An identical part strategy and flexible configuration approach solves customer-specific needs and reduces costs for vehicle manufacturers and machine end-users.

  • Compact steel tank; type TMSD

    New tank creates space

    Installation space in railway vehicles is a precious commodity. The new TMSD tank has been optimized for hydrostatic traction drives and auxiliary systems such as fan, generator or compressor drives. With a capacity of only 10.6 liters, Bosch Rexroth has developed a particularly compact tank design. Cyclonic spiral flow characteristics guarantee very good degassing behavior. These tanks easily handle flow up to 350 liters per minute. The TMSD tank meets or exceeds all relevant European railway standards. It complements other Rexroth system solutions, module assemblies and pumps, motors, blocks and RC control units for railway vehicles.
