SAFELY AND SUSTAINABLY
The transport sector is responsible for one-fourth of global CO2 emissions from fuel combustion and with the International Transport Forum predictions that passenger mobility may increase by 200-300% by 2050, changes in transportation are inevitable to achieve net-zero goal globally. Passenger rail is not only one of the most electrified modes of transport today, but it is well matched to move large numbers of people easily.
Rail passenger transportation accounts for 50% of all GLOBAL rail activity, yet it only represents 2% of total transport energy demand.
At Lucchini RS we’re proud to contribute to the passenger railway industry and make sustainable mobility mainstream. Our product design, material innovation, engineering, lean manufacturing, and AI-powered services are guided by ADDING VALUE to people, environment and railway industry.

TOGETHER WE MOVE PEOPLE SAFELY
Wheelset eco-friendly design optimization allows Lucchini RS to minimize the mass, helping to make trains lighter and more energy efficient.
UNMATCHED CUSTOMIZATION OF WHEEL DESIGN, MATERIAL & COATING
We provide a complete range of proprietary steel grades with specific features, improving wheels performance and properties. Our range of products also includes the Molybdenum coating on axle seats to prevent damages during wheel unfitting.
BEST PROTECTION FROM CORROSION AND IMPACT
Lurshell®, the anti-impact shell for axles, protects by conventional anti-corrosion coating, while Lursak® solution protects against damage from ballast impacts.
TOTAL WHEELSET CARE
Lucchini RS “One-Stop Philosophy” helps OEMs and passenger rail operators reduce maintenance stops. Our supply chain resiliency, worldwide presence, local expert teams and innovative technologies allow us to offer turnkey solutions and guarantee the best support, condition based maintenance services and stock availability.
SERIOUS ABOUT SERVING
All of the necessary maintenance steps can be included from the start, to cover the entire life of the wheelset.
Our AI-powered Smartset® Diagnostic solutions allow OEMs and train operators to identify the suitable NDT inspection intervals based on the unique characteristics of the service condition, bringing down maintenance stoppages.
Our scientific algorithms monitoring wheel wear profiles identifies the best reprofiling intervals.
Our noise-reduction solutions from the Syope® family are designed to significantly reduce wheel noise emissions, 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.
WHERE WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Lucchini RS has been at the customer’s side supporting the entire process of the design stage for the Hitachi Rail “Caravaggio” fleet, developing the most effective solutions that fits properly with the project requirements.
