THE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Without being able to showcase a modern and efficient light rail transportation system, cities often consider themselves behind the development curve.
Driven by technological advancements, including 5G, AI and IoT, Light Rail transportation shows significant promise for the cities and OEMs in terms of meeting the zero-emission goals, achieving greater safety and lowering operating costs.

GREEN ID: A MILE CLOSER TO ZERO-EMISSIONS

In order to reduce our carbon footprint from “source to axle”, we’ve created a Green ID. It is a science-based tool that meets the ISO Standard and is aimed at monitoring, quantifying, reporting and verifying the emissions actually associated with a product across scope 1 to 4.

Putting the real CO2 impact of our products and components in numbers allows us to choose the best suppliers, adjust and accelerate environmental initiatives, and finally become clean-by-design.

MEET THE RESILIENT WHEEL LIGHT ON WEIGHT. BIG ON RESILIENCE.

The resilient wheel has been optimized to resist wear and tear, improving LRV safety and the cost efficiency. Consisting of the following basic components: a tyre, a wheel centre, a retaining ring and rubber blocks, resilient wheels can withstand increasing axle loads and can be re-profiled up to X times . The noise absorbing Syope system (optional) can be easily installed and customized to minimize noise emission.

SUPER RESILIENT WHEEL

An ideal solution for older tracks, and cars without suspensions, these wheels are extra durable and provide a significant reduction in noise and vibration. They extend the life of the wheelset and guarantee a smoother and safer ride for the passengers.

LIMOSET
LIGHT. MODULAR. INGENIOUS.

Engineered for low-floor applications, Limoset’s patent-pending design not only allows to improve the accessibility to the vehicle for people with limited mobility, but also helps to significantly bring down the cost of infrastructure.

Unlike monoblock solutions, Limoset reduces the unsprung masses, it is modular and adaptable for different gauges. It is designed-to-cost and is easy to maintain. In fact, maintenance is limited to replacement of a damaged sub-component, vs replacing the entire wheelset, adding up to a serious financial benefit for the OEMs and ECMs.

SYOPE LAYERS.
YOUR SILENT ADVANTAGE.

Syope Layers technology in combination with the STARDAMP algorithm effectively eliminates squealing noise, caused by the second and third resonant frequency of the tyre, when the vehicle is approaching narrow curves.  Syope® absorbers could be mounted directly on the tyre with anti-vibration screws, or assembled with rivets on a special ring in a groove on the tyre.
