Products and services

Liebherr-Transportation Systems presents its latest product for the first time at APTA: the MACS 8.0 Modular Air Conditioning System. The roof system is very low profile as well as lightweight and is characterized by its energy saving function and long working life.

Further highlights being presented by Liebherr-Transportation Systems include an electro-hydraulic actuator, which is used for the active lateral suspension of rail vehicles in order to reduce wear on the wheel/rail interface, whilst also improving travel comfort for the passengers.

In addition, animated films will provide visitors information and fascinating insights into how the HVAC systems and hydraulic actuation systems developed, manufactured and serviced by Liebherr-Transportation Systems function on board a train.
