ERCI Online Workshop | Less Weight. More Freight. 4.0 Technologies for Safety & Maintenance

Date & Time:

May 25, 2022 @ 10:00 - 11:30

In this webinar you will learn about 4.0 technologies improving safety and maintenance in the railway sector.

“Less weight. More freight”: TransANT provides a more efficient and sustainable solution for the industry with a highly innovative modular freight wagon that is based on a lightweight steel design and consists of a standardized platform wagon in different lengths plus modular and industry-specific superstructure. TransANT GmbH is a joint venture with ÖBB Rail Cargo Group and voestalpine Stahl GmbH. TransANT is intended to create capacity in the market for innovative and cost-effective rail freight cars. TransANT was one of the finalists of last year’s ERCI Innovation Awards.

“Safety & Maintenance. Improvement technologies”: IVM is an innovative SME focused on the development of monitoring and diagnostics solutions aimed to improve safety and optimize maintenance processes. One of its innovations is POWERVE®, a revolutionary and portable device designed to statically measure the vertical forces on wheels and wheelsets. Correct equalization of vertical forces on wheels is fundamental to guarantee the dynamic stability of any rolling stock. POWERVE® is simple to use and enables increased inspection frequency over the rolling stocks life cycle, ensuring to keep unaltered the design values also during maintenance processes. POWERVE® has been awarded with the prestigious “Jury’s Prize Coup de Cœur” during the ERCI Innovation Awards in 2019.
