The companies of the Schaltbau Group are presenting numerous innovations at the InnoTrans 2018

  • Broad range of products for safe, comfortable,
    economical rail travel
  • Development mainly focused on digitisation
  • Booth featuring solutions for rolling stock in hall 2.2 and

Munich (Germany), 17 September 2018. For almost 90 years, the name Schaltbau has stood for quality and the further evolution of an increasingly broad range of railway technology applications, often in leading market positions. It has therefore become good practice for the Schaltbau Group to present itself to expert visitors every two years at the InnoTrans, the leading international trade fair for railway transportation. From 18 to 21 September, the Group is presenting its goods and services at the exhibition grounds in Berlin. This year, Schaltbau will be discussing the current state of affairs and trends for the future on the back of its slogan “The Smart Evolution of Technology”.

The aim of the innovations and enhanced products designed by the Schaltbau Group is to consistently provide greater safety and/or comfort and/or to reduce the total cost of ownership for customers. In many cases, the use of digital technologies is playing a key role.

At this year’s InnoTrans, the Schaltbau Group is showcasing its sophisticated railway technology at two different booths; one in hall 2.2 and the other in hall 6.2, which include the following highlights:
