Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company AMIII

AMIII

The AMIII bogie became operational in 1998 and conforms to UIC, UK Rail Group and TSI standards. The AMIII can therefore replace conventional bogies and may be used to upgrade older wagons.
 
Compared to the UIC standard bogie (Y25), the AMIII has improved damping, radical wheel steering and a stiff H-frame.
 
This results in the following advantages: Low track forces producing low bogie wear and reduced maintenance

  • Track friendly - low track wear
  • Freight friendly - low vertical acceleration
  • High speed of 140 KPH
  • Produces less noise than conventional bogies - 6 decibels
  • High axle loads of up to 30 tonnes - anticipating future axle-loads allowances

The AMIII is currently operating successfully in the UK and Finland.
Why choose Axiom Rail suspension systems?

  • Low maintenance costs
  • High axle loads
  • Low noise
  • High speeds
  • Freight friendliness
  • Track friendliness...

Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company AMIII Broad Gauge

AMIII Broad Gauge

The AMIII Broad Gauge bogie was designed to meet the demands of 25 tonne axle load requirements in Finland.
 
The design is based on a low profile axle motion bogie with some features that have been uniquely developed for operations in cold climates.
 
The design allows for passive steering of the wheelsets so that they are able to take up a radial alignment when the bogie travels through track curves. Rubber elements incorporated into the suspension arrangement permit the wheelsetsn to move in a controlled manner relative to the bogie frame whilst maintaining dynamic stability.
 
The bogie features a two-stage friction damped suspension system, vertical suspension is provided by helical steel coil springs, whilst lateral movements use a “swing link principle”.
 
The suspension movements are damped in both the vertical and lateral directions by a double chevron wedge system.
 
AMIII advantages:

  • 25tonnes axle...

Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company LN25 Bogie Family

LN25 Bogie Family

The LN25 family of bogies are innovative hydraulically damped bogies designed for axle loads up to 25 tonnes and can operate at a maximum speed of 120 KPH.
 
Based on the same principles of the UK approved LN25 which entered operations in 1999, two complementing suspension components make the LN25 bogie family distinctive - a soft primary suspension comprising of hydraulically damped coil springs and a stiff secondary suspension using rubber bonded side-bearers. The LN25 bogie has undergone a successful program of testing in Germany and France in accordance with EN14363 (UIC518/UIC518-2) with speeds up to 120km/h and axle loads up to 25t. This will enable wagon designers to specify the LN25 in combination with a wide range of wagon types without the need for further dynamic testing.
 
The LN25 will have Interoperability Constituent status (in accordance with the TSI) and EBA approval.
 
The LN25 has the following advantages:

  • Tested...
