The AMIII Broad Gauge bogie was designed to meet the demands of 25 tonne
axle load requirements in Finland.
The design is based on a low profile axle motion bogie with some features that
have been uniquely developed for operations in cold climates.
The design allows for passive steering of the wheelsets so that they are able to
take up a radial alignment when the bogie travels through track curves. Rubber
elements incorporated into the suspension arrangement permit the wheelsetsn
to move in a controlled manner relative to the bogie frame whilst maintaining
The bogie features a two-stage friction damped suspension system, vertical
suspension is provided by helical steel coil springs, whilst lateral movements use
a “swing link principle”.
The suspension movements are damped in both the vertical and lateral
directions by a double chevron wedge system.
