FAIVELEY TRANSPORT TO UNVEIL MAJOR INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS AT INNOTRANS 2014 IN BERLIN

 

Faiveley Transport, a leading global supplier of high added value systems for the railway industry, will participate in InnoTrans, the railway industry’s largest trade fair, to be held in Berlin, Germany, from 23 to 26 September 2014. On this occasion, the Group will showcase on its stand (Hall 1.2, stand 102) its leading-edge equipment and introduce its most recent innovations to its four activities.

 

 

Brakes & Safety

Worldwide preview ofthe ParkLock® concept, offering twice the braking force and half the space compared to previous parking brakes. By reducing the number of components, Faiveley Transport meets both the needs of customers and market expectations offering a light and more compact product enabling improved reliability and life-cycle cost. Another innovation will be presented at InnoTrans: the new generation of axle-mounted brake disc Faiveley NeoFlexx®. This disc, both lighter and more energy efficient than conventional discs, is made possible by its revolutionary manufacturing process. Faiveley NeoFlexx® offers lower wear rates and a high resistance to mechanical and thermal stress, and significantly extends its lifespan and so reducing operating costs while improving performance.

 

Access & Mobility

Presented to the public for the first time, Clear-FlowTM, the new type of Platform Gate from Faiveley Transport, offers higher, safer and aesthetically improved platform edge barriers. Especially designed to facilitate retrofit projects on existing railways with modular installation, it will be presented at InnoTrans with lean-to seats on the fixed part of barrier, and it will demonstrate how Faiveley Transport’s Platform Doors & Gates can enhance station architecture and improve the comfort and safety of passengers. ESP4C, the new compact door operator, will also be displayed in Berlin. Targeting the light rail and metro markets, Faiveley Transport has developed this new compact vehicle sliding plug door operator, with a very high level of standardisation using service proven components.

 

Energy & Comfort

Among other innovations in power devices and electronic equipment, an innovative electronically controlled pressure protection device for air conditioning will be presented, offering closing time and sealing force previously only possible using pneumatic solutions. A carbon fibre Pantograph will also be displayed together with the Demetra energy metering system.

 

Services

Faiveley Transport Services expertise will also be on show with its range of innovative service offerings including a new electrically actuated door cylinder, the Electric Cylinder Drive & Lock, developed to easily retrofit pneumatic door mechanisms to electric operation and providing increased reliability and safety features.

 

Other Faiveley Transport equipment will be presented on board vehicles displayed on the exhibition’s open air tracks.
