Successful trade fair attendance at InnoTrans

Convincing design: the new "varioStrap" hanging strap

We were delighted that our trade fair stand in Berlin drew so much attention. Visitors from all over the world showed great interest in our new "varioStrap" hanging strap and were convinced of both the shape and the multitude of different design possibilities. Other exhibition highlights included tribological components for passenger carriages and freight wagons.

Plastic for slide bearers, bogies and brake linkages

Despite easy handling, technical plastics from faigle demonstrate their hardness and resistance in operation. They are mainly used in applications where parts are subjected to heavy stresses, for example bogies in passenger carriages and freight wagons. Bearing bushes for brake linkages in freight wagons are also increasingly made from technical plastics. For example, the material used to manufacture brake linkage bushes is a self-lubricated polyamide which we designate as PAS-80X. The specialists at faigle achieved some notable improvements by adding a special dry lubricant. Compared to steel, technical plastics have a multitude of decisive advantages and offer enormous potential for savings in many areas of application. Tribology: plastic instead of metal

Discover the potential that lies in technical plastics. Due to their tribological properties – i.e. their slip and friction capability on various mating surfaces – technical plastics can replace steel. For over 40 years, faigle has been a specialist for slide promotion plastics and the design of slide bearings. We have developed our own special materials for low friction, extremely high wear strength and impact strength. These materials have been in successful use in the railway industry for many decades and are constantly being improved. Although steel initially inspires confidence, the advantages of plastic only become apparent in use: lightweight parts are easy to store, transport and install.


We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all visitors and look forward to doing successful business with you.
