ELH 3-25s(s)i(f)-K

The bogie ELH 3-25s(s)i(f)-K is a newly developed three-axle railway wagon bogie for a wheelsets load of 25 t and with built-in an pneumatic brake system.


All components required for generation the braking force - brake cylinder, brake linkage and slack adjuster - are incorporated in the bogie.

If composite brake shoe soles are used, the 12" brake cylinder ensures that the brake block forces required in ss-traffic are achieved.


The brake system makes it possible to use the bogie at 100 effective braking power for wheelsets loads up to 18 t. The decrease in the effective braking power to 90 % permissible according to UIC leaflet 543 allows the bogie to be used at speeds up to 120 km/h with 20 t axle load.

The bogie is also available with a floor-operated arresting brake.


The wheelsets suspension uses TKS springs. The wheelsets are connected by balancing levers so that the load will always be uniformly distributed over the wheels.

The balancing levers are supported in elastomer springs in a wear-free manner.

To ensure good curve running characteristics, there is a longitudinal and cross-play in the wheelsets guides.


The enveloping space requirements of UIC 510-1 for three-axle bogies are largely satisfied.


Manufacturing at ELH is carried out with our own set of drawings.
