Hydraulic Brake Systems

Brake with a System

 

HANNING & KAHL has been producing track brakes since 1928. The very serious discussion on the significance of road safety for passengers has always spurred us on the look for new technical solutions, to accelerate their development and to make sure that they are widely applied in practice. Following on from this commitment, the first electro-hydraulic springapplied brake systems were produced in 1959.

Today the product range in the brakes division encompasses a wide selection of highly-sophisticated units for rail-based vehicles: spring-applied actuators, spring-applied brake calipers, brake cylinders, active calipers, hydro-units for multi-stage and stepless brake controlling, microprocessor-controlled brake controllers, auxiliary release devices, hydraulic levelling systems ... and of course track brakes.
