Optimized life-cycle costs of any component keeps rail-bound transportation competitive. Thanks to the improved steel grades and our state-of-the-art heat treatments, we ensure reduced wear and tear of wheels, as well as tyres. We design the wheels to withstand increasing axle loads and to enable a higher number of re-profiling. We are capable and eager to customise noise absorbing systems to meet high expectations.
Our resilient wheel family is just more evidence of continuous product evolution and improvement. Rubber-sprung resilient wheels offer significant reduction in noise levels and increases in comfort to tackle the effects of rail-wheel contact.
Key element of rail-bound vehicles
Wheels are an essential component of any type of rail-bound vehicle and they are at the core of our focus and attention. GHH-BONATRANS is one of the world's leading manufacturers of wheels for all kinds of rolling stock with a history dating back to 1808. Our wheels are running under high-speed and mainline trains, metro, trams, locomotives and freight wagons in more than 80 countries on 5 continents. We have supplied more than 8 million monoblock and 160 thousand resilient wheels onto the market.
Both customer requirements and standards for railway wheels are more and more demanding. To keep the flow of rail transportation smooth and efficient, each wheel must not only be skillfully crafted, but primarily smartly designed. And this is where we excel, thanks to the long-term expertise and our deep knowledge supported by cutting-edge research and development centres.
