Bearings for track gage changing systems

Five different track gages in Europe and Asia usually lead to delays for cross-border passenger and freight rail traffic. An automatic track gage changing system provides the solution. Axle gage changeover points at stations on borders and adjustable gage wheel sets on the vehicle enable the distance between the wheels on the axle to be adjusted quickly. Schaeffler Group plain bearings support the gage changing mechanism and contribute to extending the maintenance interval of the complex adjustment mechanisms.
