MoComp – our rail components and systems
Made to move
Success on rails has always depended on the right components. Siemens Mobility has now bundled its reliable, innovative, efficient, and propulsion-related component portfolio under the MoComp family name – from pantographs and traction converters to brake systems and bogies. The technology is tailor-made for any application, and developed by a vehicle manufacturer for vehicle manufacturers. Better rail vehicles with MoComp components – made to move.
We keep things moving – for 140 yearsTake advantage of our 140 years of experience in developing and manufacturing superior railway components. MoComp is your partner for optimized pantographs, traction converters, motors and gear units, brake systems, and bogie technology for all types of rail vehicle.
Data hunters and gatherers
Bogie maintenance is an important subject for all rail operators. Denis Becker is part of a development team that’s putting bogie diagnostics on an entirely new footing. The MoComp Bogie Diagnostic Solution now provides him and the service team at the Siemens Mobility Rail Service Center in Eving, Dortmund, with real operating data so they can assess the bogies – with many positive outcomes.
Perfection taken to the extreme
Bogies are the components of a rail vehicle that are subject to the highest loads and forces. In an interview, Dr. Stefan Erlach talks about MoComp bogies and the Graz location, and about the bogies’ effect, for example, on the vehicle’s safety and riding comfort as well as its noise levels.
Being a pioneer
MoComp is more than just a name for outstanding rail components. It’s a commitment to being a pioneer. We put our components to the test in digital simulations, in the freezing cold, and in extreme heat. For us, that’s what being a pioneer is all about: always using the latest technologies to design, build, and test our components – and to revolutionize them so they optimally meet your requirements.
Railway gear units now under the Siemens brand as part of MoComp portfolio
What has long been part of Siemens now bears the Siemens brand. Rail transmissions from Siemens Traction Gears Penig GmbH, a 100-percent subsidiary of Siemens Mobility GmbH, were still sold under the Flender brand after the power transmission specialist was acquired by Siemens AG in 2005. With the sale of Flender to Carlyle, use of the Flender product brand ceased. Our rail transmissions now appear under the Siemens brand.

Auxiliary converters – state of the art
On-board comfort and information are becoming increasingly important for your passengers, as are air conditioning and ventilation. This underlines the growing importance of the power supply for on-board electrical consumers. Our innovative auxiliary converters with SiC (Silicon Carbid) technology are the critical link between these consumptions and the vehicle power supply: small, lightweight, and extremely efficient.
