Disconnecting train parts for overhaul and repair can be a tricky business, as working with certain parts can be challenging. Removing a coupler from a train for overhaul and repair was a time-consuming task requiring excessive manual manpower. A better way of removing decouplers was needed. The solution had to be easy to operate, withstand correct weight requirements and deliver overall efficiencies for Voith Turbo.
In collaboration with Voith Turbo, Arex designed and built a Coupler Removal Tool for fitting to a forklift. The tool has three components, the forklift attachment, the coupler tool itself and a transporting unit to transport the coupler from point to point. The tool is currently undergoing field trials.
“AREX Precision is an innovative, reliable and customer focus designer / supplier for Voith Turbo P/L over 14 years. Supplying cost effective components of the highest quality, they play an important role on Voith localisation (local manufacturing) in Australia’s Rail and Mining market.”
