We provide a complete range of proprietary steel grades with specific features, improving wheel performance and properties.
Improvement within current standards.
Severe environmental & loading conditions.
For Nordic and freezing environments.
Applications for desert environments.
Application with tread-braked wheels.
Our noise-reduction solutions from the Syope® family are designed to significantly reduce wheel noise emissions vibration for the very high-speed trains, thereby limiting the impact of noise pollution on people and ecosystems. All Lucchini RS wheels are compliant with EN13979 and assessed by STARDAMP software to predict the wheel noise emission.
FOR A BETTER FUTURE
Our Factory is situated in the heart of Italy, surrounded by mountains and blue waters of the Lago d’Iseo. Every day we are reminded of the pristine beauty and fragility of nature and of our responsibility to protect it for the future generations.
Driven by the goal to reduce our carbon footprint, we’ve developed a GREEN ID. Green ID is the innovative solution to provide the real carbon footprint of our products “from cradle to cradle”. Through a science-based tool that meets international recognised standard, Lucchini RS is able to monitor, quantify, report the emissions actually associated with its products. Putting the real CO2 impact of our products and components in numbers easy to understand allows us to act upon our choices, adjust and accelerate environmental initiatives, playing a concrete role to protect and save our environment.
