FAG transmission bearings in the Hamburg elevated railway system

The electric-powered DT4 type subway vehicles consist of four joined cars. Every vehicle is equipped with four motor bogies and two trailer bogies.

The vehicles were produced by Alstom and Bombardier Transportation and feature very high passenger comfort and high safety standards. Alongside the high technical standards, the DT4 trains’ environmental standards are unique the world over.

In additon to the axlebox bearings, FAG supplies all rolling bearings for the wheelset reduction gear.
