BONATRANS offers complete railway wheelsets for all applications, including assemblies of such components as brake discs, bearing boxes, drives and gearboxes, noise absorbers, etc.
Dimensions vary from the smallest freight wheelsets (diameter 360mm) for low-floor flat cars for the transport of lorries, to the biggest locomotive wheelsets (1,250mm). The product line includes BONATRANS B29 and BBS wheelsets for large axle loads (25t) with high thermal loading resistance for freight wagons, as well as wheelsets for high speeds and other special applications.
Rolled railway wheels and rubber-cushioned wheels
BONATRANS manufactures a wide range of rolled railway wheels of all dimensions and designs corresponding to various types of applications, including drilled plates, noise and vibration absorbers and brake discs mounted on the wheel plates.
As a specific product, BONATRANS offers rubber-cushioned resilient wheels offering a high degree of noise and vibration suppression especially in the domain of urban transport. Apart from the noise-reducing advantage, these wheels also considerably reduce wheel and rail wear and the overall life cycle costs. The BONATRANS design of the resilient wheels differs from other similar designs and provides for low weight, space saving and easy maintainability.
BONATRANS offers a wide range of railway axles, including: drive axles with multiple seats; axles with molybdenum layer reinforced seats; non-drive railway axles for passenger and goods applications; lightweight axles with longitudinal boring (hollow) allowing for precise diagnostics when in operation, etc.
Railway discs and tyres
Even though the number of tyred wheels is decreasing with the gradual introduction of monobloc wheels, many of them are still in operation and BONATRANS supplies a complete line of spare tyres, i.e. wagon, locomotive and tram tyres. BONATRANS also supplies machined tyres for rubber-sprung resilient wheels.
Noise and vibration absorvers for rail wheels
As noise emitted by railway wheels is a major environmental issue, especially in highly populated areas, BONATRANS offers various types of noise and vibration absorbers that significantly and efficiently reduce the noise of wheels in operation.
