Switch Rolling System BWG-S

IBaV-System Brandenburg with integrated Switch Rolling Device System Schwihag BWG-S

Switch Rolling System BWG-S

IBaV-System Brandenburg and Switch Rolling Device System Schwihag – is the unification of two systems that have individually withstood the test of time for a multitude of requirements and long-term strain.

The Switch Rolling System BWG-S delivers on our customers’ preference for modular turnout systems.

The Switch Rolling System BWG-S equally embraces the demand for improved environmental protection and reduced maintenance effort. Our modern turnout technology optimizes the service life of turnouts.

 

Design and Function

The Schwihag switch rolling device, integrated into the base plate, is a component of the Inner Stock Rail Fastening – System Brandenburg. The separate slide chair comprises the switch rolling device.

In a rigid ribbed base plate bearing, the switch rolling device is bolted to the roller socket integrated into the base plate. In elastic bearings, the roller socket is vulcanized into the base plate in upright position on the sleeper surface and is hence decoupled from the motion of the ribbed base plates.

Horizontally, the switch rolling system can be fastened in different positions. It is then continuously adjustable against the switch rail. Vertically, each switch roller is continuously adjustable from -0.5 mm to +6.5 mm.

 

Application

If the Switch Rolling System BWG-S is applied, the slide chairs do not need to be lubricated.

The Switch Rolling System BWG-S is suitable for any turnout, and is available for virtually any rail profile.

The Switch Rolling System BWG-S is optimized for the different spring stiffness levels of the ribbed base plate supports (rigid and elastic).

The Switch Rolling System BWG-S combined with coated and therefore less rust-prone slide chair plates, allows the installation of a low-maintenance turnout with a long service life.
