In a world where trains must function on time, every time, pressure is on railway operators to ensure regular upgrades and repairs of their infrastructure, all driven by the needs and expectations of the customer.
Looking at a complete system within the vehicle along with all its interfaces from a completely clean sheet will give us the opportunity to question, review and potentially improve that system (in this example, rail) utilising the latest technology and manufacturing advances.
One of the biggest changes in the rail industry has been the move away from dependence on diesel as the main motive fuel. With the increasing electrification of railway networks, train manufacturers are now looking for more innovative solutions and improved methods of "current collection".
When it comes to the global rail industry, there can be no doubt that rolling stock, such as engines, carriages and freight wagons, must operate in some very challenging environments while delivering safety, reliability and performance.
This article highlights just a few examples of pneumatic systems helping rail operators overcome the elements to optimise their productivity and profitability.
