Keep rolling with local rail expertise at Railtex 2019
Visitors to this year’s Railtex exhibition, held at the NEC, Birmingham, will have the opportunity to see the extensive range of services on offer from Sulzer. The company’s stand, E61 in Hall 3, will show some of the key components that can be repaired and refurbished by Sulzer’s dedicated engineering teams as part of its comprehensive rail solutions.
Sulzer’s network of service centres delivers expert electrical and mechanical maintenance solutions for rail rolling stock. From bogie frames, braking systems and pumps to heating and ventilation fan systems, motors and generators, Sulzer provides technical expertise for both scheduled maintenance and unplanned repairs.
Sulzer has a long heritage in the rail industry and this is complemented by the company’s extensive engineering expertise and specialist facilities. These have been enhanced by the addition of a new Rail Competence Center in Nottingham, which offers increased production capacity and improved reliability for customers.
By working with operators, end-users and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Sulzer aims to fully understand and identify common causes of failure within service-life expectancy. This creates tailored solutions that improve component reliability, enabling customers to achieve the expected, rail industry operating schedules.
To help visitors learn about the full range of services on offer, Sulzer will have a virtual reality headset on the stand that will allow them to explore a 3D model of a train. Users will be able to select, view and learn more about the components that can be repaired and tested to the high standards required by the rail industry.
Visit Sulzer’s rail experts on Stand E61 at the 14th international exhibition of railway equipment, systems and services, at the NEC, Birmingham from 14th-16th May.
