SCHWARZER rigid magnetic brakes are used in trams, light rail vehicles, metros, subways and other urban solutions worldwide. They have a rigid magnetic body and are suspended individually in the train’s bogie – without connection to a tie bar. herefore, they are not intended for mainline application. The possible applications range is from any rail type to all other magnetic applications.
With different variants, SCHWARZER rigid magnetic brakes meet almost any design requirement. SCHWARZER has been manufacturing rigid magnetic brakes with compression spring suspension since 1992 and installs them in most projects. Extremely low-profile, rigid magnetic brakes with leaf spring suspension from SCHWARZER, are ideal for low-floor solutions. Since 1997, more than 10,000 brakes have been in service with this suspension system. Rigid magnetic brakes with elastomer spring suspension have a very quiet and damping suspension system. They have been in a successful and fail-safe operation since 2007.
