The Transrapid reveals the response to the challenge of the 21st century. The railroad made the industrialization possible in the 19th century and so that has the economy, the society and the world changed became this process within the last century of the airplane and the automobile marked and strengthened together with the railroad like. This century will belong to the Transrapid. The Transrapid will nationally and internationally change and strengthen this process of the economic interweaving, still better, it will more environmentally harmless and faster more cheaply connect work, ground and capital the factors of production and therefore make them available better. The country which combines the work factors at the good and quick, makes without loss of time and everywhere disposable almost simultaneously is ahead in the international competition. Hours and even minutes count in the persons and freight traffic today. Time is cash money.
The technical characteristics of the TR are given by it, that the "car" doesn't run on a wheel as in the case of the railroad but that a magnetic field is built up between vehicle and road once. The magnetic field raises not only the vehicle about 1 cm over the road, in which you pull up and hold on the same distance from below, it permanently is built up so also in front of the magnetic railroad that the magnetic field stretches the train. Because North Pole and South Pole in the magnetic field get dressed.
From this technique the following advantages arise:
There isn't any friction as it is between wheel and linear path. Friction indicates once
