Switch Assembly

Switch assemblies help guide your vehicles safely in the right direction.

Since trams are particularly stressed in the range of switch assemblies that direct the rail vehicle, different types of switch assemblies are used in our turnouts depending on the application. With all our switch assembly designs, we place great importance on safety, availability, durability and a material-appropriate maintainability.

System Features:

  • The right switch assembly for every machine size for all rail types
  • Special designs of switch assemblies for external curve turnouts and inner curve turnouts
  • Switch assembly types
  • As a welded box design using rail profiles according to VDV OR 14.3 as a flat bed or deep bed switch assembly
  • As a monoblock (flat bed switch assembly) made of highly wear-resistant 400HB steel over the entire range of the switch assembly
  • With welded or exchangeable switch (ZAD 30/45/S system)


  • ZV types for all rail profiles, rail qualities and maintenance philosophies
  • Ensure the highest level of functional reliability and maintainability
  • Use of highly wear-resistant materials in wear areas
  • Replacement of wear parts (switch rail) without affecting the top layer (ZAD 30/45/S)
