MUNICH — Get into the Flow is the principle guiding Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and other rail and commercial vehicle systems, at InnoTrans 2022, where visitors will be given an in-depth tour of the Group’s innovative, resilient, green and connected solutions.

The various themes in the booth’s solution spaces are directly based on customers’ current and future needs. InnoTrans will take place in Berlin on September 20-23, 2022 – visitors will find Knorr-Bremse’s 1,000 m2 booth (nearly 11,000 sq. ft) in Hall 1.2 (Booth 250).

Dr. Jürgen Wilder, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Rail Vehicle Systems division, underlines how the Group’s presentation at InnoTrans will focus on solutions drawn directly from customer needs.

“We want to talk to our stakeholders, including vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators, about all the political, economic and social challenges confronting the mobility sector and the rail industry, and show them the solutions we’ve devised at first hand,” said Dr. Wilder. “These include pioneering innovations for digitized, automated freight transportation, but also numerous system solutions that can be implemented with immediate, tangible effect – all designed to strengthen the rail sector and deliver on our industry’s commitment to dependability.”

The Knorr-Bremse booth will showcase connected systems and solutions in three solution spaces, each targeting a selection of key customer needs and market demands: Ecological Footprint, Traffic Flow, and Train Operations & Maintenance.

The fourth solution space will focus on Knorr-Bremse’s Smart Solutions, the overarching ecosystem that brings together all the other systems and subsystems to deliver new functions and services. This directly reflects Knorr-Bremse’s role as enabler – actively assisting and supporting customers as they engage with digital transformation.

Ecological Footprint:

How can customers help create a sustainable rail industry and improve their vehicles’ eco-footprint?

Only by systematically reducing emissions and energy consumption will the rail sector be able to meet sustainability expectations and targets – and expand its share of the mobility mix. Knorr-Bremse supplies specially designed solutions for producing safe, clean air such as the clean[air] family’s integrated, energy-efficient HVAC systems or the green[air] systems using low-GWP refrigerants (GWP = Global Warming Potential).

At the same time, all Knorr-Bremse products and services are designed to support an optimized circular economy, while meeting the Group’s own high standards of recyclability.
