Wikov Has Joined Forces with Hexagon to Minimise Tram Noise Emission

Noise, Noise, Noise! Forget It!

Wikov has joined forces with Hexagon to develop a tram gearbox to minimise noise emission.

The requirements to minimise noise during operation also apply to gearboxes, especially those for rolling stock. If we want to achieve the maximum possible elimination of noise, we must not overlook a single detail in the manufacture of gearboxes. That’s why we have taken the best available software on the market in the field of noise identification and elimination and joined forces with Hexagon, a leader in this field.
