  • Patent number: 5671682
    Abstract: The invention relates to a sway brace on rail vehicles. The aim of the invention is to find a solution in which the effort and expense needed to produce the sprung sway braces can be reduced and the transverse forces and the resultant wear occurring on deflection can be reduced to the minimum. This is achieved by the invention in that one end of the sprung sway braces in a special design is arranged in a support with defined guide surfaces while the other end is secured to the piston of a hydraulic cylinder via an axial rocker beating. In addition, there is a disc spring column above the sway brace.
