Innovating Wheelsets 2020: Maintenance, Sustainability and Value
October 19 - October 20
The railway rolling stock sector is changing rapidly with the introduction of new fleets and new technologies. Several new suppliers have entered the UK market and this combines with an increased interest in innovation, reduced whole life cost and reduced environmental impact. With these trains come technologies and designs new to the UK market – and engineers must be prepared to adapt their practices for wheelsets to conform to new requirements and standards.
As a critical rolling stock component, the effective design and operation of wheelsets is imperative. This seminar brings together representatives from the entire industry to share insights into new trains, associated technologies, and their impact on wheelset requirements. Attendees will learn how they can maintain high standards of safety while improving cost, lifecycle and environmental performance.
