Parker Hannifin will be exhibiting at Railtex, to demonstrate its proven engineered products for rail industry maintenance and design engineers.
Modern rail traffic must operate on time, every time, and customer demands mean there is no margin for failure. So, whether the MRO challenge is on-board the train or at the depot, Parker can help maintenance teams achieve whole-life cost savings and longer in-service time. For example, the company’s oil contamination monitoring products provide predictive maintenance to help prevent catastrophic failure, production downtime and lost profit.
Similarly, from a design perspective, Parker innovation is ongoing, delivering not only breadth, but also reliable local supply of products that are OEM specified in accordance with global standards. Partnering with Parker means designs are future-proofed using electromechanical parts, manifolds, compressed air-related products or infrastructure piping systems. A good example of the latter is the Transair aluminium pipe system, which offers a rapid fit, modular design and energy efficient option compared with steel or copper alternatives.
Parker has, and continues to develop a wide range of technologies that are rail certified for proven reliability in both the commercial and private rail sectors. The company’s system-integrated products, such as pantographs, doors, couplings and horn control, help reduce engineering and assembly times by up to 70 per cent. Entire systems or single components can be supplied for high-speed and passenger transit traffic, locomotive and multiple units, as well as freight and special-purpose vehicles.
Details of all Parker products can be found at Railtex, Earls Court, 30 April–2 May 2013, where visitors to Stand E25 will have the opportunity to speak with Parker’s team of experts about existing or forthcoming engineering challenges.
