Co-financing of a development project: development of a brake disc with improved ventilation and adapted logistics

Project Description:

Within the framework of the development project, the consortium partners, companies Kovis d.o.o. and Kovis Foundry d.o.o., will develop a wheel-mounted brake disc and a metal pallet for adapted brake disc logistics. The innovation is intended for use in rail vehicles reaching speeds of over 200 km/h.

Project Objectives:

Kovis: The main objective of the project is the development of an innovative technical solution at a global level – a wheel brake disc (KZD) for high-speed train traffic (speeds above 200 km/h). This disc will also include a completely newly developed dynamically loaded screw, which will serve as part of the system for attaching the brake disc to the train wheel.

Kovis Foundry: The project focuses on the development and production of special metal pallets that serve the adapted logistics and storage of wheel brake discs (KZD) for rail traffic.

The investment is funded by the EU and is part of the measures of the Recovery and Resilience Plan (NOO), which forms the basis for the use of funds from the NextGenerationEU Recovery and Resilience Mechanism.
