Getzner's products for the railway sector
One of the primary problems associated with rail transport is vibrations that are transferred from the track superstructure into the surrounding area. Humans perceive these vibrations in the form of a trembling in the ground or structure-borne noise. The other main problem relates to the cost of maintenance work that needs to be carried out on the railways as a result of wear and tear caused by insufficient elasticity within the track. Getzner develops highly-elastic products and systems to attenuate this type of vibration, successfully reducing the cost of maintenance work required due to the wearing of superstructure components and rolling stock. These products, which were developed by Getzner's own researchers and have been designed to cope with all axle loads and speeds, are used all over the world and are leading products in the railway sector.
The economic solutions provide highly effective vibration protection for all areas:
  • Standard-gauge railway
  • High-speed
  • Urban transport (light railways, trams and underground lines)
  • Heavy freight
  • Local transit
