Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company AMIII

AMIII

The AMIII bogie became operational in 1998 and conforms to UIC, UK Rail Group and TSI standards. The AMIII can therefore replace conventional bogies and may be used to upgrade older wagons.
 
Compared to the UIC standard bogie (Y25), the AMIII has improved damping, radical wheel steering and a stiff H-frame.
 
This results in the following advantages: Low track forces producing low bogie wear and reduced maintenance

  • Track friendly - low track wear
  • Freight friendly - low vertical acceleration
  • High speed of 140 KPH
  • Produces less noise than conventional bogies - 6 decibels
  • High axle loads of up to 30 tonnes - anticipating future axle-loads allowances

The AMIII is currently operating successfully in the UK and Finland.
Why choose Axiom Rail suspension systems?

  • Low maintenance costs
  • High axle loads
  • Low noise
  • High speeds
  • Freight friendliness
  • Track friendliness

Wabtec westinghouse air brake technologies company AMIII Broad Gauge

AMIII Broad Gauge

The AMIII Broad Gauge bogie was designed to meet the demands of 25 tonne axle load requirements in Finland.
 
The design is based on a low profile axle motion bogie with some features that have been uniquely developed for operations in cold climates.
 
The design allows for passive steering of the wheelsets so that they are able to take up a radial alignment when the bogie travels through track curves. Rubber elements incorporated into the suspension arrangement permit the wheelsetsn to move in a controlled manner relative to the bogie frame whilst maintaining dynamic stability.
 
The bogie features a two-stage friction damped suspension system, vertical suspension is provided by helical steel coil springs, whilst lateral movements use a “swing link principle”.
 
The suspension movements are damped in both the vertical and lateral directions by a double chevron wedge system.
 
AMIII advantages:

  • 25tonnes axle loads
  • UIC518 compliance
  • Radial steering
  • Low temperature range
  • 1524mm track gauge width

Why choose Axiom Rail suspension systems?

  • Low maintenance costs
  • High axle loads
  • Low noise
  • High speeds
  • Freight friendliness
  • Track friendliness

Wabtec Corp Automated Bench Test Equipment (BTE)

Automated Bench Test Equipment (BTE)

Bach-Simpson™ Automated Bench Test Equipment (BTE) provides a combination of automatically sequenced and manually selected electrical signal stimulation to an electronic unit under test. The system simulates the normal and threshold operational ranges of each of the inputs and communication channels of the test unit. The BTE utilizes an electronic control system based on a PC computer mounted inside a portable metal "rack" enclosure, with a touchscreen interface to allow the user to select appropriate testing procedures.
