FAG Axlebox Bearings with Swing-arm Housing in the CORADIA LIREX for Stockholm An axlebox bearing with a swing-arm housing was designed for the bogie concept of ALSTOM LHB. It consists of a cap and base, housing ring and a rolling bearing. The rolling bearings, in this case cylindrical rolling bearings, are mounted into a separate housing ring. The cylindrical Roller bearings are single bearings mounted in the proven NJ-NJP arrangement. The bearings are state-of-the-art, fitted with a polyamide cage and manufactured to EN 100.
FAG Insert Hub Units for Trams in Halle Continuous axlebox shafts cannot be installed in trailer bogies due to the lowfloor section. This means that low floor axles are used where the Wheels are mounted on a stationary axle. All trams for the city of Halle have FAG insert hub units for the independent wheels. FAG insert hub units consist of a tapered roller bearing pair. The inner rings of both bearings are manufactured with such high precision that the specified preload is obtained in the wheel unit after mounting.
