Unique wheel for railroad cars will make Russian transit unattainable for competitors


The quarantine restrictions associated with the pandemic had an extremely negative impact on the global transport and logistics system. In particular, due to congestion in ports, the cost of delivery of containers with cargo has greatly increased, which, of course, "pulled" along with the prices for various goods.


However, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining. At least in this case, this applies to Russia. Problems with sea transportation have made our railroad highly demanded. Transit of European and Asian goods through Russia increased by 31% compared to the pre-crisis 2019. At the same time, according to the majority of experts, this trend will continue.

In this regard, literally last week, the government adopted a new Transport Strategy of Russia, which provides for an increase in the transit of goods through the territory of our country by 2024 times by 3,2 compared to the same in 2019. To implement the plan, it is planned to modernize the railway network, as well as form multimodal transport and logistics centers in various regions of the country.

But that's not all. Thanks to the efforts of domestic engineers, Russia has a unique opportunity to significantly increase the speed of cargo transportation without interfering with the railway infrastructure.

Specialists from OMK, together with colleagues from the Scientific Research Institute of Railway Transport and the I.P. Bardin Central Research Institute of Chermet, have developed innovative solid-rolled wheels for high-speed platform cars. The uniqueness of the new wheels lies in the fact that they have an increased carrying capacity with a minimum metal consumption and allow a train with large-tonnage containers to reach speeds of up to 160 km / h on the existing infrastructure. Today this figure does not exceed 90 km / h.

As a result, according to preliminary calculations, the introduction of the new development will allow the delivery of goods from West to East in about 7 days. Economic The effect of this innovation for our country can hardly be overestimated. Indeed, in fact, it does not leave any chances for competing projects of transport corridors bypassing Russia.

As for the unique wheels, they successfully passed preliminary tests at the end of last year. Bench and dynamic tests are currently underway. The certification is planned for next year.

    Will the cart fall apart? And to be honest, a freight train speeding at a speed of 160 km per hour is a terrible sight.

      It may be necessary to shorten the trains, for example in Hayrope I have never seen such long freight trains as in the Russian Federation

        There are wagon couplings in the vyropah, who can afford it. There are also screw ones - a rarity of the century before last, go and twist to couple, and then to disengage. In Russia, the CA-3 hitch is a clutch, and it is coupled, twist and already uncoupled. As one liberal-Russophobe used to say - a galosh.

            these earrings are MANUALLY put on the hooks, and then manually tightened with a screw!
            release in reverse order
            common people twist and go and rejoice!

              And where else are there such or similar couplings as in the Russian Federation? It seems that in Canada, too, the compositions are long

                CA-3
                Hitch
                Wikipedia

                An automatic coupling device used in the railway transport of Russia, in the republics of the former USSR and in Mongolia for coupling between rolling stock units with minimal involvement of a coupler. The CA-3 is also used on the Swedish-Norwegian Malmbanan ore railroad. In Finland, Iran and Iraq, the CA-3 is used, combined with a screw tie and buffers. Also, the CA-3 or a compatible coupling is used in African countries such as Cameroon, Gabon and Mauritania.

                  Thank you, I was almost 100% sure about Mongolia, but for some reason I thought that in China, too, but it turns out there is a European track too

          I would say in some places there are even two stations along the length of the train wassat

    You need to brag less and do more.
    And then it was already similar 2 years ago, about the Russian breakthrough wheels. And then I had to explain why we buy in china, the republics of asia and ukraine ...
