"We are delighted to welcome CRRC, one of the key customers for the Chinese railway sector, to Schweinfurt. The Chinese railway market is the world's fastest growing and therefore of central importance for Schaeffler", said Dr. Stefan Spindler.

In the field of railway engineering, Schaeffler has been successfully active on the Chinese market for decades. As early as the 1980s, the first axlebox bearings from Schaeffler were used in railway applications in China. Today, Schaeffler is an important development partner for high-speed, local transport and freight applications in China with local development, production, and service expertise. Over the last few years, Schaeffler has, among other things, expanded its development capacities for axlebox bearings in the Railway sector in Schweinfurt and in Anting, China. Here speeds of up to 600 km/h and axle loads for freight transportation up to 40 tons per axle can be tested. In order to increase safety during day-to-day operation and to minimize wear and maintenance outlay, Schaeffler also has its own accredited test laboratories in Germany and China for assessing the performance of axlebox bearings for railway applications and ensuring their optimization.
