The BVV low-floor wheelsets with loose wheel bearing

Everyone a unique piece

Selection of previously manufactured types

Externally mounted loose wheelset for standard gauge vehicles, payload up to 13.5 tonnes

Our 13.5 tonne wheelset from the range of loose wheelsets is designed to provide a stable platform for low-floor tram vehicles with a width of 2.65 m. This makes one-piece forged loose wheel axles necessary, which are designed in a double-T-beam design to reduce the weight. The advantage of this design is maximum loading capacity combined with low weight and long service intervals. These savings were made possible by very close cooperation and partnership with the client.

Further details:

  • Integrally forged axle bracket, consisting of stub axles, side members and axle central component
  • Resilient wheels of type Bo 2000, tread diameter 660/580 mm
  • Tapered roller bearing with pre-set bearing clearance and hydraulically joined brake calliper hubs with integrated earthing contacts

Internal loose wheelset for standard gauge vehicles

This 10.5 tonne wheelset for the standard gauge is designed for use with 2.65 mm wide tram wagons and can of course also be adapted to other track gauges. As a special feature, resilient Bo84 wheels have been installed to reduce the radial stiffness, which ensures the vehicles run particularly quietly and with low-vibration.

Further details:

  • Side members with integrated housing for rubber roller springs as a connection to the chassis
  • Low-floor axle forged in one piece
  • Specially designed resilient Bo 84 type wheels with 660/610 mm tread diameter
  • Classic tapered roller bearings

Externally mounted loose wheelset for metre gauge vehicles

Designed for a payload of 8.4 tonnes, this loose wheelset is used as a base for 2.30 m wide low-floor trams. The required light construction loose wheel axle made of high strength steel in conjunction with the molybdenum-coated bearing seats are designed for maximum loads and long service intervals. Additional insert bearings and the like reduce the wheelset weight to less than 750 kg.

Further details:

  • Integrally forged axle bracket with molybdenum-coated bearing seats.
  • Additionally sealed and pre-stressed insert bearings from the trailer area.
  • Special power supply from the wheel tyre directly to the earthing contact.
  • Resilient Bo 2000 type wheels, tread diameter 600/520 mm.
