In times of urbanisation, climate change, developing areas, etc., public transport becomes an important alternative to car traffic. As the importance of public transportation grows, so too does the need for greater reliability to ensure the transportation flow 24/7. As passengers make daily use of these modes of transport, comfort and operational excellence are in high demand. IGW ensures reliable rolling stock for great public transportation.
The number of light rail systems is rapidly increasing all over the world. In metropolitan areas they also often complement mass transport systems such as metro. We offer bevel, helical and bevel-helical gear systems in various configurations. Our products can be found in numerous light rail systems all over the world, from high floor to 100% low floor. Underneath you can find some examples:
Metro systems can be seen as the work horses of any important metropolitan area, transporting millions of people every day. Our gearboxes & couplings are designed to perform day in, day out, without delays, at minimum life-cycle cost. From London to Shanghai, from Sao Paulo to New Delhi, the busiest metro systems in the world rely on our technology in various configurations and gear ratios. 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Multiple units – connecting the suburbs with the city centers or cities to each other – have a vital role in any dynamic region or country. All well-known rolling stock manufacturers rely on our technology to keep their fleet running.
As a clean and fast alternative for travelling longer distances over the mainland, high speed networks have gained a substantial share over the past decades. We deliver high-tech gearboxes for those high-tech trains.
Reliability and power are key. Locomotives must perform in the most demanding circustances: from the cold arctic regions of Norway, to the hazardous outback of Australia. Our gearboxes are designed to guarantee performance in any given condition. We offer customized solutions at minimum life-cycle cost and maximum availability.
