The Schunk Group has decades of experience with electro-mobility and alternative emission-free drives. More than 80 cities in 25 countries world-wide are already benefiting from this.
Sandy desert winds, salty sea air, cold, lightning strikes: Schunk has developed materials which can be adapted to the most diverse requirements of drives with carbon brushes.
System parts and auxiliary agents made of Oxide Fiber Composites (OFC) have a
significantly higher service life than parts made of conventional materials.
The wear and tear and, above all, the introduction of impurities by tooling and plant components during the processing of aluminium melts has always presented the foundry industry with greater challenges.
In electric traction motors capacitive interference currents can cause damage to bearings and gears. Schunk’s innovative carbon grounding system is a reliable and cost-effective solution.
Body armor fitted with hard ballistic components from Schunk meet the requirements of the highest protection class and are true lightweights.
"Costly downtimes can often be avoided by focused maintenance."
With its smart charging solutions, Schunk is an important strategic partner of Irizar.
Talgo, the Spanish manufacturer of high-speed trains, relies on Schunk's pantographs.
With the CDE system, Schunk offers a fully automatic cleaning system to extract free-floating dust directly – and quietly.

Largest E-Bus Fleet at Schiphol Airport Drives with Smart Charging Pantographs from Schunk Carbon Technology
Solutions from Schunk ensure that not even extreme conditions can impede energy suppliers.
Schunk has decades of experience in this field and has also been present in Poland since last year.
The Schunk Bahn- und Industrietechnik GmbH delivers the 1,000th roof-mounted pantograph for electric buses.
As an innovative charging solution for electric buses, Schunk Smart Charging already set new standards in the past. Now the system is also being successfully tested for the automated charging of battery-powered mining vehicles.
Customized to your particular applications, they stand out for current slope in idle modes, in low-load operation and in aggressive media as well as in environments with high dust content and humidity.
The IntrinSiC® 3D printing technique makes it possible to manufacture highly-complex ceramic structures.
Just like with the development of materials, we also go the extra mile for our customers when it comes to service: with on-site inspections, we help to optimize machines and processes.
Product Manager Timo Staubach explains where electrical mobility stands today and what can be expected in the near future.
