THE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Without being able to showcase a modern and efficient light rail transportation system, cities often consider themselves behind the development curve.
Driven by technological advancements, including 5G, AI and IoT, Light Rail transportation shows significant promise for the cities and OEMs in terms of meeting the zero-emission goals, achieving greater safety, and lowering operating costs.
A MILE CLOSER TO ZERO-EMISSIONS
Green ID is the innovative solution to provide the real carbon footprint of our products “from cradle to cradle”.
Through a science-based tool that meets international recognised standard, Lucchini RS is able to monitor, quantify, report the emissions actually associated with its products. Putting the real CO2 impact of our products and components in numbers easy to understand allows us to act upon our choices, adjust and accelerate environmental initiatives, playing a concrete role to protect and save our environment.
BIG ON RESILIENCE
LIGHT ON WEIGHT
Our resilient wheel has been optimized to resist wear and tear, improving light rail vehicle safety and the Total Life Cycle Cost. Consisting of basic components such as a tyre, a wheel centre, a retaining ring and rubber rings/blocks, it can withstand increasing axle loads and can also easily accommodate the noise absorbing Syope® system.
RESILIENT WHEELS BENEFITS
EASY TO ASSEMBLE
ADAPTABLE WHEEL DESIGN
LIGHT. MODULAR. INGENIOUS.
Engineered for low-floor applications, LimoSet® our innovative axle reduces the Total Life Cycle Cost of the wheelset. It is designed-to-cost and is easy to maintain because it introduces the modularity concept that grants easy assembly, disassembly, and inspection, adding up to a serious financial benefit for the OEMs and ECMs because grant lower maintenance costs.Discover more
EASY TO MAINTAIN
WITH RESILIENT WHEEL
Our wheelsets and their components in close collaboration with the operators – to guarantee the maximum safety, durability, and ease of assembly.
Our noise-reduction solutions from the Syope® family are designed to significantly reduce wheel noise emissions thereby limiting the impact of noise pollution on people and ecosystems. All Lucchini RS wheels are compliant with EN13979 and assessed by STARDAMP software to predict he wheel noise emission.
LOOKING FOR SPARE PARTS?
Lucchini RS acts as a single reliable supplier for the technical responsibility, maintenance and replacement of rubber elements, tyres, mounting kits and Syope® noise absorbing systems. We can support the Customer also with reverse engineering and supply of spare parts for existing wheel solutions.
Lucchini RS steel boutique has been founded to add an unmatched level of design and material personalization. Our expertise and in-house production also allow us to adapt the design configuration to the specific interface requirements (e.g.: tread profile geometry and dimensions, traction and/or braking system interfaces) and to find the best solutions in terms of components material (e.g.: tyre mechanical properties, light-alloy solutions for the wheel center and the ring for unsprung masses optimization). We also offer service for reverse engineering of existing wheels for a complete or partial (spare parts) refurbishment, upon Customer’s request.
