In a recent issue of Konstruktionspraxis, a leading industrial engineering journal in Germany, GGB illustrates the benefits of Fiber-Reinforced Composite (FRC) bearings in the railway industry.
Railway companies face many challenges: safety, efficiency, unpredictable weather, and innovation, among others. Further, they need to overcome these obstacles with fewer resources than ever.
As the article explains, the solution comes in the form of fiber-reinforced composite bearings from GGB. GGB works with railway companies to meet their challenges with custom FRC bearing solutions that offer clear performance advantages in the bogie or truck system (brake linkages, side bearer liners and king pin bushes), door opening systems, pantographs, couplings that connect train cars, hook guide plates, fold-down seat hinges, ramps for passenger accessibility and railway barriers, to name a few. Within these applications, GGB bearings help reduce noise and vibration, increase energy efficiency and extend maintenance intervals.
Read the full article to learn more about how FRC bearings from GGB deliver the performance needed to withstand the wear, weather, and other variables to provide efficiency and safety to the railway industry.
