Nose Suspended

When we refer to the support of the traction motor in a suspension bearing on the axle shaft, we speak of a cannon box drive or unsprung drive. The motor-gear unit is attached by means of a torque arm on the bogie. Henschel meets the requirements for the delivery of transmissions for "Nose-suspended" systems.
