As one of more than 430 organisations preparing for Railtex 2015, Sulzer is looking forward to welcoming visitors to this year’s expo at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham on 12th May.
With electro-mechanical repair centres across the country, Sulzer is expecting high interest in its ability to offer a local service supported by a national network of dedicated engineers able to deliver a cost effective and efficient service for rolling stock and fixed asset equipment nationally. As a major showcase for UK rail technology, this year’s show looks set to be one of the biggest for many years both in terms of actual size and content. Staff from Sulzer will be available on stand V66 to provide information on the wider range of repair and maintenance services available for both rolling stock and fixed assets.
Mike Stanley, general manager at Sulzer’s Birmingham Service Centre, commented, “Our service centres are renowned for offering professional servicing of AC and DC traction motors, inverter drives and generators as well as many other crucial pieces of equipment such as bogies and braking systems. With extensive design and manufacturing capabilities, we can produce specialist components such as commutators and slip rings as well as complete motor and generator repairs.”
The facilities and expertise used to deliver these items within the Sulzer group have received substantial investment recently, ensuring that a comprehensive range of services are always available when required. With dedicated traction coil production facilities and the latest insulation technology, comprehensive repairs to stator, armature, interpole and field coils can be assured.
Keeping rolling stock and support systems running efficiently and reliably is a constant challenge, hence Sulzer offers a complete 24 hour service that delivers accredited repairs according to the Railway Group Standards and approved procedures. The complete range of services is available through local Sulzer Service Centres that manage and coordinate the repair process for the client.
