Integrated Bogie Brake type IBB 10 is the patented Bogie Brake designed for freight wagon application. It is the lightest brake solution on the railway market so far. This design enables easy assembly and disassembly of each component separately, which is a big advantage taking into consideration overhauling and maintenance of the system. The assembly of IBB 10 is located between the bogie wheels and it fits to the standard interfaces of Y25 bogie family. Its function is to provide equal braking force application simultaneously on four wheels. The design is based on the use of a brake cylinder as an executive unit with hand brake application and two double-acting slack adjusters for automatic gap regulation between all four wheels and brake shoes.
