Fenix Rail Systems was delighted to attend the Rolling Stock Networking (RSN) 2019 event in Derby.
The company was among 130 exhibiting – from the UK, mainland Europe and America. The event at the Derby Arena was attended by over 1,200 visitors.
The exhibit featured a live example of the Tie-Fenlock trailable points machine – a presentation on the innovative digital depot control solution that assists depot operators by reducing their workload and increasing safety, allowing them to set multiple routes within the depot.
Fenix CEO, Craig Purcell, was one of eight guest speakers at the event. He gave his insights into the provision of depot control systems and what can be achieved to locate efficiencies in depot operations to reduce delays.
He also discussed the Tie-Fenlock system, which was first installed in the UK at the Central Rivers Depot in 2000 and has since established a track record of outstanding reliability. Craig shared information on how the innovative depot control system assists the depot team to optimise the operation of the depot.
Fenix Rail Systems was delighted to attend the Rail Live 2018 exhibition at Long Marston, Warwickshire on 20th and 21st June 2018.
Fenix Rail Systems CEO, Craig Purcell attended as well as a number of Fenix’s engineering staff. Craig said: “This has been a great opportunity to demonstrate our capabilities and equipment to many of our potential clients without having to attend a site visit. With interest from a number of potential clients Fenix are delighted to have had the opportunity to attend this exhibition with such a large audience.”
The company used the exhibition as an opportunity to showcase its innovative point machine, the first of its kind to be used in the UK.
The point machine is equipped with an internal mechanical locking system, therefore common external maintenance locking systems such as clamp locks are no longer required.
Due to its short height, the point machine is installable between the rails without adaptation to existing track system. The point machine can be installed on a gap-free ballast ground and therefore ensures proper track conditions and reduces the strain on the points. It also increases on-site safety by reducing trackside trip hazards due to its positioning on the track.
The point machine has a robust and compact construction which is perfectly suited to rough conditions for industrial rail traffic.
