    KONI / Axtone at the InnoTrans 2022, in Berlin now together as one.
    With more than 100 years’ experience KONI / Axtone is the leading manufacturer specialized in energy absorption technology products (suspension dampers, springs, buffers, shock absorbers, coupler components and crash solutions). (Hall 1.2, stand 180).

    Guido Beyss, General Manager, highlights the company's experience in critical technical elements, both in Passengers as well as in Freight business. KONI / Axtone is a key player within the upcoming European rail freight transformation by the DAC System. "The KONI/Axtone Draft Gear will support the innovative revolution of the DAC System with our different experience, technology and know-how," said Beyss.

    Digital Automatic Coupling System (DAC) – The European Railway is planning the transformation of the freight wagons' coupling from a manual to an automatic system (DAC). The Digitalization will increase the length and load of trains in order to shift freight from road to rail. KONI / Axtone is the leading producer of the Draft Gear, the critical component for energy absorption.

    The new Service Center for KONI dampers starts operations in Kanczuga (Poland).
    On top of our already successful buffers and draw gears Service Center we are proud to extend our service for KONI Dampers. Customers can save up to 40% by overhauling KONI Dampers with getting the same warranty conditions as new ones. This new KONI/Axtone's service increases sustainability, saving of resources at lower cost level for our customers.  

    KONI / Axtone presents spring technology (coil and leaf springs) in Stalowa Wola, (Poland). A new leaf spring production is operating for new leaf springs as well as refurbishing service. By that we can combine our entire experience and technical know how under one roof.
