Guiding Bushes

Play a key role in guiding the wheelset. As system components they can also be used to transmit loads in the traction link and anti roll system as well as in the driveline suspensions.

Features & Benefits

  • Allow the wheelset to follow the track course with less wear
  • Transferring forces between wheelset and bogie
  • Easy assembly
  • Maintenance free
  • Acoustic and vibration isolation and damping
