Our solutions for the railway industry market

Von Roll helps manufacturers to reduce costs and to meet the continuing demand for increased efficiency and power-to-weight ratio of AC and DC traction motors, transformers, inverters, rectifiers, circuit breakers, batteries and other applications needed in a train.

The technical requirements of electrical motors and components of a locomotive are quite demanding. The stress factors with regard to electrical, thermal and mechanical characteristics are higher than with any other system, and expectations of reliability are particularly high. This has a direct impact on insulation specifications and processes.

As the original material manufacturer, we have materials and components to meet almost all of your specificrequirements. A special focus is our electrical insulation system, developed for both resin-rich (RR) and vacuum pressure impregnation (VPI) technologies.
