For many decades, Sauter Bachmann has been known as a reliable supplier of high-quality gears and wheel sets in the traction sector.

Here are some examples:

Already in the 60s and 70s the locomotives RE 4/4 and RE 6/6 were equipped with the spring chamber wheels from Sauter, Bachmann AG..

In the 1980s and 1990s, Sauter Bachmann supplied the main drive for the NPZ railcar, which is currently being converted into the DOMINO railcar by means of a complete retrofit program. Sauter Bachmann also supplies the transmission conversion kits for this program.

Of course, parallel to the state railways, the private railways in Germany and abroad also became important customers of Sauter Bachmann. Sauter Bachmann supplied the highest quality individual gear wheels and gears, ranging from simple gear wheels for the door closing mechanism to complex rack and pinion gears for the rack and pinion drive of mountain railways.

Thanks to the competent engineering and the existing assembly capability, Sauter, Bachmann AG is today in a position not only to manufacture new parts for railway technology, but also to support railway operators in transmission maintenance.
