Kendrion technology for rail vehicles
As a manufacturer of electromagnetic solutions for rail vehicles, Kendrion meets the high requirements placed on service life and performance of rail-traffic components.
In this area, Kendrion develops application-specific concepts that live up to the special requirements of this market. Tests are carried out on in-house test benches that simulate the operating conditions of rail vehicles, enabling proof of the usability for such applications.
An example of such an application-specific solution is Kendrion's electromagnetic clutch, which was specifically developed for air compressors in diesel-electrical switchers. Thanks to Kendrion's clutch technology, long duty cycles - as required for air compressors of switchers/shunters used for shunting freight cars or wagons with empty compressed-air reservoirs - can be ensured.
