Adding rail couplings to our product portfolio is a natural step for IGW. We have traditionally supplied rail couplings, mostly originating from qualified subcontractors. Now we are proud to present our own in-house coupling capability.
Many years of field experience have given us the insight to focus on design features with a proven reliability, and to avoid those that have caused problems in the field. Using the latest engineering software and simulation tools, we ensure lifetime performance and minimal life cycle cost are built in from the design phase.
All IGW rail couplings are subjected to rigorous prototype testing, using our gearbox testing equipment and experience to their full advantage.
In cooperation with leading industrial partners and universities, we continue to innovate coupling technology, improve energy efficiency and reduce life cycle cost, making sure the coupling market is always moving forth.
