Rail Coupler Removal

Disconnecting train parts for overhaul and repair can be tricky business. Some parts can be difficult to work with. Removing the coupler from trains for overhaul and repair was time consuming and required too much manpower, there had to be a better way. The solution needed to be easy to use, be able to withstand the correct weight requirements and deliver overall efficiencies for Voith Turbo. Voith Turbo approached Arex and through collaboration a Coupler Removal Tool for a forklift  was designed and built. The tool has 3 components, the forklift attachment, the coupler tool itself and a transporting unit to transport the coupler from point A to point B. 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 localization (local manufacturing) in Australia’s Rail and Mining market.”
