Component replacement system for SBB passenger traffic, Zürich, Switzerland

MSD built a component replacement system for SBB at its Altstetten location with hoisting gear, carrier and longitudinally traversable carriage and pick-up tables with a capacity of three tonnes each.

This system enables the replacement of underfloor components, e.g. drive sets, traction motors and Cardan shafts on InterCity tilting trains.

The system is used to replace underfloor components (drive sets, traction motors, Cardan shafts, etc.) on ICN vehicles.

The parts of the system are
1. Hoisting gear
  • Steel structure with telescopic guide and hydraulic cylinders for lifting the load
  • Can be moved by hand on 4 rollers in the base of the rail in the middle pit
  • Manual pendant control panel with buttons for 2 speed levels
  • Lifting height: 2 x 750 mm
  • Lifting force 30 kN
  • Lifting and lowering time: 30 sec
  • Hydraulic unit output: 3 kW
  • Voltage: 3 PE 400 V / 50 Hz
  • Dead weight: 1000 kg
2. Carrier carriage
  • Capacity 30 kN:
  • Steel load-bearing structure; top for holding and fixing the following pick-up tables;
  • four wheels with one-sided wheel flange for rolling on the parallel lifting jack tracks; with roller contact bearing;
  • Dead weight 720 kg
3. Longitudinally traversable carriage
  • Carrying capacity 30 kN
  • Steel load-bearing structure; underside for support on the aforementioned lifting gear; incl. device for fixing with simultaneous guaranteed adjustability of +/- 100 mm transverse to the track
  • 4 wheels, smooth standard type with one-sided wheel flange with roller contact bearing;
  • Dead weight 500 kg
4. Pick-up table
