Earlier this year, Nencki AG commissioned the 100th bogie test bench at Siemens AG in Allach, Munich. Additionally to the production of locomotives, also the maintenance of locomotives is carried out at this Munich plant.

Approximately 100 bogies are currently tested on the Nencki NBT Coach every year. With the axle assembly stand, attached directly to the bogie test bench, the revised bogies are completely assembled and pre-adjusted

The completed bogie can be moved through a shifting device, directly from the axle assembly stand onto the bogie test bench. After the test is completed, the bogie is returned to the axle assembly stand and transferred in its lowered position to the final locomotive assembly by a self-propelled special vehicle.
