TSB – Transport System Bögl: Driverless local train with magnetic railway technology

Over the last few years, the Transport System Bögl (TSB) has been independently developed based on magnetic railway technology and brought to readiness to go into production by the Max Bögl Group. TSB is a driverless, fully secured, track-bound traffic system with travel velocities of up to 150 km/h. It is characterised by unrivalled riding smoothness, low operating costs and high flexibility in route planning. The slim track can easily be integrated into existing infrastructures, either at ground level or elevated on racks.

Innovative strength and pioneering achievements – keywords for PROSE and the Max Bögl Group
Developing a drive unit for magnetic railway technology always requires out-of-the-box solutions, something which Max Bögl has found in PROSE’s years of experience with unconventional solutions. From the concept idea to the production drawing, PROSE has accompanied and supported the development of the drive unit. PROSE is looking forward to committedly supporting the Max Bögl Group, which is characterised by its innovative strength in research and technology, again in the future with the development of creative all-round solutions!

TSB technology conquers China
The Max Bögl Group has already signed a cooperation agreement with the Chinese company Chengdu Xingzhu Road & Bridge Machinery Co Ltd. The agreement includes the construction of a test track with a length of more than 3.5 kilometres in Chengdu, the capital of the province Sichuan.

We wish Max Bögl and Chengdu Xinzhu Road & Bridge Machinery Co Ltd success for the commissioning and homologation for the Chinese market.

PROSE investigates and evaluates BVB unusual infrastructure damages

Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe (BVB) have optimized several processes in its technology management division and made changes to its organizational structure following the discovery made last summer of unusual damage on its tracks. This discovery showed a different, new damage pattern which can be attributed to a maintenance backlog in wheelset machining. The BVB Board of Directors wanted to understand the circumstances and causes as well as the administrative and personnel responsibilities that led to this maintenance backlog. The board therefore commissioned an independent external investigation for which the results are now available.
