Draw-Gear Springs

Provide optimum force distribution and a uniformly applied load on mechanical structures – for added safety and traveling comfort

Draw gears absorb the tractive forces within a train formation. They are used in locomotives, freight cars, coaches and special rail cars and designed to minimize train vibrations and noise emissions. At the same time, they provide the required traveling comfort and sustain the safety of passengers and goods in the long run.

Due to their unbeatable energy absorption, their outstanding energy characteristics and their excellent spring operation, DUREL polymer springs for draw gears excel in meeting all of the above requirements. They enable the manufacturing of components that offer increased performance for an often limited space and nominal stroke.
