Alstom opens bogie test and validation center

Posted on September 28, 2009

On Monday, Alstom Transport opened a building at its site in Neuhausen, Switzerland, to test and validate bogies for its trains.

 

The manufacturer has developed a new test bench at the site to add up its existing validation equipment and tools. The test bench can accommodate complete bogies, including underframe, suspensions, transmission and engines. It was designed in response to the opening up of the railway market and the reduction of train development times.

 

The test bench will speed up product reliability processes to ensure a more efficient start-up, and will enable Alstom to integrate and manage all design phases of a new bogie from development to fine-tuning and validation.
