Braking Systems

Dependable, long lasting, quality braking solutions that assure precise operating performance and proper brake cylinder pressure under all braking conditions, including the most demanding grade situations.

In 1869, George Westinghouse, Jr. patented a system that used air pressure to stop trains. Since then, Wabtec has continuously led the industry, improving our brake components to meet car design and operational demands.
