Rail Vehicles



In order to reduce congestion on the highways, rail freight transport uses a wide variety of freight cars. They differ in their characteristics depending on the cargo and the dimensions of the freight car. This colorful mix of designs also brings new challenges, such as the development of different automatic couplers, which have to be mastered in order to meet the demand for freight cars in all European countries. Voith has been researching and developing automatic couplers for rail freight for many years, and the Technische Universität Berlin supports Voith with various tasks and tests.
