FOR A LONG HAUL
The rising vehicle emissions, road traffic congestion, increasing safety concerns, and greater demand for faster stress-free commutes have boosted investments in rolling by legal authorities and expansion of the global rail infrastructure. All these factors are driving the locomotive market growth.
The global locomotive rolling stock market is projected to reach eight billion U.S. dollars by 2027 (Statista report, 2021)
At Lucchini RS we are proud to raise a bar of the locomotive’s safety and sustainability. Our product design, material innovation, engineering, lean manufacturing, and AI-powered services are managed by skilled and motivated people, focusing on Added Value for customers, Environment Preservation and Railway Industry Sustainability.
WHEELS THAT KEEP THE WORLD ON TRACK
Lucchini RS extensive portfolio of rolling stock solutions and services uniquely positions the Group as a reliable, long-term partner for the forward thinking OEMs and train operators, looking to embrace electrification, condition based maintenance, higher safety standards and autonomous driving.
TO ROLL LONGER
If you want to do something right, you have to start from the beginning. Lucchini RS extensive know-how and one-stop-philosophy allows it to support customers in locomotive wheel and axle design and testing from the sketch to the delivered wheelset. It means that we support the customer in all the steps from scratch to final product offering a tailor-made solution to cover all the requirements and optimize the Total Life Cycle Cost.
Less vehicle stops
Reduces maintenance costs
Increase safety & reliability
MILES AHEAD IN SERVICE AND SAFETY
Cold rolling for axles and molybdenum coating of seats are two strategic ways to improve locomotive safety, reduce axle and wheelset damage during overhauling, significantly slow down the appearance of the corrosion and possibly completely avoid NDT.
TAILORED REPROFILING PLAN
Our algorithms continuously monitor wheel wear status to identify the best reprofiling intervals and help locomotives roll longer, optimizing the Life Cycle Cost and increasing their availability.
SMARTSET® FOR CBM
Smartset® solution collects the stress levels of the loco axles, offering a real-time picture of the wheelset components usage, while StarCrack algorithm helps to extend the distance between NDT in service without affecting the safety. Smartset® can also identify defects on the axles during the planned inspection and prevent eventual problems in service, thus reducing the costs for OEMs.
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.
WHERE WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Reduced lead time thanks to our “House of Vectron”, a strategic asset to keep a local buffer stock. “House of Vectron” allows the Group to guarantee parts availability and just in time delivery service, with the production average of 1 Loco per day.
