(A) ABSTRACT IN ENGLISH: This paper presents the development for the low-speed-guideway bending switches for the first commercial Transrapid project. Bending switches are individually used as a possibility to change over from one running track to another and are used in groups of several switches as cross-overs. A cross-over is used to change over from one track to another parallel track in case of double tracks. They can also be used for shunting purposes in railway stations and maintenance yards. (A)
