Hydraulic Brake Systems
HANNING & KAHL has been producing track brakes since 1928. The very serious discussion on the significance of road safety for passengers has always spurred us on the look for new technical solutions, to accelerate their development and to make sure that they are widely applied in practice. Following on from this commitment, the first electro-hydraulic spring-applied brake systems were produced in 1959.
Today the product range in the Rolling Stock Division encompasses a wide selection of highly-sophisticated units for rail-based vehicles: spring-applied actuators, spring-applied brake calipers, brake cylinders, active calipers, hydro-units for multi-stage and stepless brake control, microprocessor-controlled brake controllers, auxiliary release devices, hydraulic levelling systems, sanding systems … and of course track brakes.
HANNING & KAHL supplies a range of modular brake components which can be combined to form individual solutions for all tram system variants and every requirement. Our modular system offers efficient and safe braking concepts for both 100 % and 70 % low-floor vehicles as well as for high-floor vehicles and metro systems. The individual modules have proven themselves in practical deployment time and time again – providing additional safety. We would be pleased to devise special versions for your particular requirements.
