High-speed rail solutions

Since the birth of high-speed rail, SKF has been developing solutions to meet the challenging requirements of high-speed train builders and operators, for the development, design and testing of wheelset bearings. From providing increased safety and reliability in all weather conditions, to maintenance-free periods of close to million and a half kilometres, SKF solutions are optimized to meet the high-speed rail industry’s needs.
In most cases, either SKF tapered or cylindrical roller bearing units are used. Labyrinth seals are applied to accommodate the high speeds.
In addition, SKF offers a unique package comprising axleboxes, AXLETRONIC sensors, bogie condition monitoring systems and wheel flange lubrication systems, plus service engineering support including remanufacturing options.
