  • Resilient, low-noise wheel systems

    For more than 50 years, the resilient wheel systems of the company proved their worth in everyday applications guaranteeing operators maximum availability. Tyres are made of low-wear materials developed in-house and thus make a major contribution towards the great success of various solutions.

    1. BO 54

      BO 54 The 'Bochum single-ring wheel' comprises a wheel tyre, the rubber elements and a one-piece web disk. It has been used in more than 200,000 commuter train applications worldwide

    2. BO 84

      BO 84 This newer version has a divided wheel body facilitating dismantling and refitting of the wheel tyre - even under the vehicle in the appropriate installation situation. Wheels of this type have been sold more than 50,000 times.

    3. BO 2000

      BO 2000 The BO 2000 is a consistent development of the BO 84 design. While retaining the uncomplicated fitting procedure, the wheel's axial rigidity has been significantly increased.

    4. BO 01

      BO 01 The highly spring-deflected double-ring wheel was specially developed for suburban railway vehicles with limited primary suspension. Unlike older double-ring wheels, this wheel can be manufactured with a smaller running tread diameter with comparable wheel loads.

    5. LoRa

      LoRa This highly spring-deflected double-ring wheel was specially developed for the high wheel set loads of modern low-floor railway vehicles. Thanks to the particular design of the wheel, load-bearing capacity could be increased by 30% over the familiar 'BO 01' type.
