In rail vehicle construction slide inserts for bogie bearings made from thermoset moulding materials in different types and with different material compositions. Contact base for the signals technology in rail vehicle construction.
The thermoset bogie bearing insert Hi-form SSP 10 is a specially moulded thermoset laminate developed by the Erhard Hippe KG for the specific use as slide insert in Y25-bogies.
It is particulary suitable for very heavy carriages and tank wagons because of the extremely high compressive strength, the elastic modulus and the sliding additives in the material.
The bearing inserts have been succesfully tested by the German rail companies.
Hi-form SSP 10 has been in use for a six-years series since 1987. An authorization for the DB AG has been submitted.
