Diesel-Powered Rack-and-Pinion Locomotive
This system is especially designed for steep inclinations up to 30 degrees and for high payloads up to 48 t. The train configuration, consisting of drive unit, brake car and transport trailers, is running safely and trap-guided along the prefabricated and easy to install rail tracks. The special design of the rolling stock and rail system makes this product safe of derailments. It can be used on a complete and independent rack-and-pinion rail network as well as for the transport of common mine rail cars with flanged wheels in steep inclinations. This floor-mounted transport system can be easily converted into a diesel-powered monorail system. The diesel power unit can be suspended from a monorail installation and can be used to operate monorail drive units for the transport of personnel, material and equipment. Now we have an efficient and safe solution for the frequent transport of heavy mining equipment as especially known from the underground coal mining industry.
