Railway Cantilevers: Our References Speak for Themselves

Aluminum Vs Steel

Why we prefer our aluminium special alloy to steel:

  • Extremely reduced weight and better handling
  • Simplicity in assembly
  • Resistance, which is almost equivalent to the one of steel
  • Components’ life cycle exponential increase
  • Eco-friendly material
  • Its formulation ensures a total corrosion resistance (no maintenance needed) and an extreme adaptability in terms of environmental impact. This feature is even improved by possible anodization treatments

We Think Green: Aluminum

For years Bonomi has been embraced the use of aluminum and its alloys as a favorite material in stationary railway installations. Aluminum is ideal for the components of the railway catenary, especially for suspensions and supports.

OMNIA The First Smart Cantilever

For 3-25 kV lines

OMNIA is the first smart cantilever for railway overhead lines. Its project was completed in 2008 by Bonomi, together with two other Italian companies (GCF and Satferr) that have a long experience in railway, tramway and trolleybus sectors.

From the Line Engineering to the Catenary Realization

This synergy was naturally born from the need to give a complete service to the railway traction market by covering all the client’s requests: from the design, to the manufacturing of the catenary system itself ending with its installation. That is why this project was called OMNIA, a word that comes from Latin and stands for “everything”.

Why is OMNIA the Smart Cantilever?

Thanks to its technical details and it easy but functioning design, OMNIA ensures the following features:

  • OMNIA is made with a special aluminum alloy (EN AW-6082 T6 according to EN 586-2). This material guarantees extreme resistance to corrosion and eternal durability, even in highly aggressive environments.
  • Weight reduction and also reduction of components and tools for the assembly. This means a faster installation.
  • Eco-friendly – low environmental impact both in terms of design and disposal of the materials.
  • General savings, thanks to the speed of installation, lack of maintenance and the reduction in contact wire consumption.
  • Enhanced mechanical strength.
  • Extreme versatility: you can cover a very large range of technical needs with a very reduced number of components.

All these features make OMNIA the ideal cantilever in terms of life-cycle saving: the railway companies will experience the advantages of saving in hours of work, in maintenance and duration of the product life-cycle itself.
