The competence center for brake systems
Optimal braking systems require more than just the right technology. They also need the experience and perspective of a vehicle manufacturer who thoroughly understands your requirements and works with you to develop the optimal braking system for your vehicle. We provide all the necessary expertise and functions from a single source, with offerings that cover project management, engineering, logistics, testing and validation, commissioning, approval support, and support throughout the entire project duration, including spare parts supply for your braking system. With our comprehensive testing options, we ensure that the brake system meets all project requirements and complies with the highest quality standards.
The ideal solution for your brake systemIn order to provide the ideal brake solution for your application, we cooperate closely with proven suppliers of the rolling stock business. A seamless support throughout the complete project lifetime is ensured by our team in Erlangen, Krefeld, Vienna and Graz, which is working in the areas of project management, engineering, logistics, testing, validation, commissioning and homologation support.
Braking system expertise combined with the experience of a rail vehicle manufacturerAt Siemens Bremse, quality and performance is a matter of course. Our success on the global market as a recognized manufacturer of complete vehicles and railway components is the confirmation. In close cooperation together with you, we design the optimal braking systems for your vehicles.
Innovative solutions for your application
Siemens Brakes features innovative and economic system solutions. Cross discipline optimization generates additional benefits. Especially in combination with Siemens drive systems and bogies high synergies are reachable. Thanks to innovative software and hardware solutions such as online modeling we ensure project- and customer-specific optimization of vehicle operation.
The economic overall concept – for the entire lifecycle
By a robust design, minimized brake wear (blending), economic after-sales conditions and a high degree of flexibility we enable the optimal implementation of your individual requirements for operation and maintenance.
Our brake system monitoring, with its diagnostic accuracy and integration into the vehicle’s and customer’s diagnostic networks, supports you on your path to condition-based maintenance.
System know-how combined with the experience of a rail vehicle manufacturer
As a system supplier, we guarantee compliance with the highest requirements regarding reliability and safety for your braking system.
With the experience as a rail vehicle manufacturer beyond the braking system we keep all the necessary expertise and functions consolidated under one roof. Our Know-how concerning the integration of vehicle- , bogie- , and drive architectures ensure the highest level of interface expertise.
Our claim: top quality and reliability
We achieve top quality and reliability through the use of state-of-the-art tools. At our own test facility and with realistic vehicle simulations, we test many functions even before testing them on the physical train. In this way, we enable trouble-free commissioning and shorten costly commissioning times. In addition to tests required by standards, our accredited software testing laboratory guarantees in advance an optimal interplay between software and hardware, thanks to additional tests at the system level. We go the extra mile to test more than standard.
