The Future of Rail is Here!
Since Focused Technology Solutions opened its doors in 2018, the company has taken the rail industry by storm. The Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway Company has stood by their mission of developing, manufacturing and acquiring state-of-the-art technology that improves productivity and safety, leading to great success in the early stages of their history. As 2021 begins, they are continuing to pave the way for a safer, stronger and more eco-friendly future for the industry.
Maintenance of Way, a Better Way
Battery-Operated Tools for Track Maintenance Work
When it comes to doing track maintenance work, no company allows rail employees to do it safer and more efficiently than Focused Technology Solutions. The company’s battery-operated tool platform has allowed for the complete removal of hydraulic fluids and tools used by rail crews, allowing rail yards to drastically reduce their carbon footprint while not losing – and in fact increasing – productivity in the process.
Focused Technology Solutions battery-operated tools include:
“DrillEase” – battery-operated tie drill
“LagEase” – battery-operated lag inserter/remover
“SpikeEase” – battery-operated spike puller
“SpikeForce” – battery-operated spike driver
“EclipEase” – battery-operated e-clip inserter/remover
Each of these tools are easy to use, allow for the user to complete their task (ie. insert a lag, drill a tie) in an average of three seconds and have no heavy hoses to connect to, making them perfect for work on bridges and in tunnels.
All of Focused Technology Solutions’ tools are ready to go right out of the box without any setup time at all. They each take just one worker to operate, making them the perfect tools for any truck.
The Drillease, LagEase and SpikeEase, specifically, each weigh under 13.5 kgs, putting much less weight and stress on a worker’s body, leading to fewer injuries. Also, of course, there is absolutely no dirty, dangerous and disgusting hydraulics necessary.
Every one of Focused’s tools has received tremendous reviews among all the major North American railways. The SpikeEase, in particular, has even won an award in Progressive Railroading magazine for their 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards in the category of ‘Best Maintenance of Way Tool.”
Not Just Tools
While Focused Technology Solutions has become well known as an industry leader in the railroad tool sector – and has more innovative products in this space finding their way to market in 2021 – the company is way more than “just a tool company.”
In fact, Focused Technology’s 2021 will consist of releasing a plethora of game-changing and industry-reshaping technologies aimed at dramatically increasing rail yard safety and optimization measures, bringing the rail industry effectively into a new, technologically-advanced era.
More information on these products will be provided throughout the course of 2021.
