Once again, Knorr-Bremse is supplying systems for ICE trains. Following Deutsche Bahn’s decision to exercise an option to order another 43 ICE 3neo Velaro MS trainsets from Siemens Mobility, Knorr-Bremse will supply braking and entrance systems for the vehicles between 2024 and 2027. Knorr-Bremse started fitting braking technologies and door systems to the 30 high-speed trains commissioned under the original order back in 2020.Knorr-Bremse will install braking and entrance systems on the 43 new ICE 3neo trains between Q1 2024 and Q1 2027. The braking systems include all bogie equipment, axle-mounted and wheel brake calipers, steel discs and sintered pads. The system will use soundproofed air supply systems using oil-free compressors from the company’s PistonSupply Eco family. Knorr-Bremse is also equipping Deutsche Bahn’s new Velaro trains with eddy-current braking systems based on zero-contact technology that eliminates wear and noise during braking maneuvers. The brake control systems will use intelligent brake management to coordinate the various train braking systems, including both eddy-current and friction brakes. This will maximize energy recovery while minimizing wear and tear, an important step in delivering economical, eco-friendly train operation.Similarly, Knorr-Bremse will supply service-proven, pressure-tight, low-maintenance doors, including boarding aids, for the ICE trains through the Group’s global IFE brand, the world’s leading supplier of rail vehicle entrance systems.
