Longer-lived and quieter trains thanks to Miba technology
Reliable, quiet brakes are among the most important parts of state-of-the-art high performance trains. Consequently, high performance friction linings from Miba, for example, are used on high speed trains. Even at velocities around 400 kph, they offer outstanding robustness, weather resistance, and noise reduction.
Furthermore, many renowned manufacturers of traction inverters rely on Miba power electronics for the control of electric motors in locomotives. Such inverters are used to control the motor speed and thus the velocity of a locomotive more efficiently than with a mechanical transmission. In addition, Miba bearings make locomotive engines more energy-efficient and thus environmentally friendly.
