THREE ESSENTIAL COMPETENCIES OF HEMSCHEIDT ENGINEERING

HEMSCHEIDT Engineering offers adequate competencies to manufacturers of railway vehicles and chassis in three different areas.

1. Vehicle stabilisation systems

  • Offer optimal comfort at the highest safety.
  • Save installation space and weight.
  • Can be retrofitted in many chassis systems.

2. Test benches

  • Are designed specific to the customer.
  • Optimum for improving the safety, quality and functionality.
  • Are reliable and economical.

3. Engineering services

  • Customer-specific designs.
  • Proofs of strength of all kinds.
  • On-site measurement services.

DYNAMIC VEHICLE STABILISATION SYSTEMS AND TEST BENCHES FOR RAILWAY TECHNOLOGY

As developers of components for the railway vehicle market, the engineers of HEMSCHEIDT Engineering have over four decades of experience. Our dynamic vehicle stabilisation systems stand for comfort and safety and are running successfully in the passenger service for many years now. More than 5000 systems are being used today. Our products are used in new constructions as well as for retrofitting.

1. Vehicle suspensions

Features and advantages:

  • Suspension and damping are integrated in one component.
  • Spring characteristics/natural frequency can be set.
  • Extremely durable
  • High spring travel can be set at variable spring stiffness
  • Small size with high energy density
  • Vehicle loading can be measured
  • High comfort with perfectly tuned travel dynamics

Added to the above-mentioned advantages are:

  • Height adjustment and hence constant boarding height in case of railway vehicles, regardless of the loading condition
  • Barrier-free entry at platforms
  • No need for ramps in the transit area, because low overall spring travel

Features and advantages:

  • No need for ramps in the transit area, because low overall spring travel

2. Active or passive suspension and damping elements for chassis and transition systems

Features and advantages:

  • Adjustable spring characteristics
  • Adjustable damper characteristics
  • Operating information and vehicle condition can be transmitted to the central vehicle computer.
  • Active positioning

3. Stabilisers, handlebars and anti-roll bars

Features and advantages:

  • Technically innovative and efficient design
  • Durability
  • Customer-specific, personalised solution

EXCEPTIONAL ENGINEERING SERVICES

Engineering

Whether component adaptations, modernisation measures or completely new overall vehicle designs: HEMSCHEIDT Engineering finds the right solution for optimally fulfilling the requirements of the customer. Equipped with the latest hardware and software, we make use of progressive developmental methods for subsequent implementation. With the help of technical specifications, we develop 3D designs, work out static and dynamic calculations and thereafter prepare 2D drawings, documentation, manuals and installation instructions - all from one source. This ensures an efficient development process.

Testing services

From the preparation of test specifications to the approval of its products - Testing is one of the key tasks of HEMSCHEIDT Engineering. Thanks to our mobile testing facilities, it is not necessary to transport the vehicle to the test laboratory. At the site we carry out torsion measurements, rolling tests, determination of centre of gravity, wheel load measurements and many more. In this way, our customers can influence the design or the production process directly. Our stationary test facility offers our customers the opportunity to carry out dynamic strength tests for the validation of railway components or also characteristic curve measurements on chassis components.

OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM

FOR WHOM WE WORK

For manufacturers

HEMSCHEIDT Engineering supplies ready to install components and system solutions in existing or new designs to vehicle, component and chassis manufacturers. In doing so, we accompany our customers through the complete development and production process. Thus, we support the manufacturers to participate in municipal bid invitations. Feasibility studies, market analyses, FMEA or personalised consulting services are also a part of our portfolio. Along with this, we also provide extensive testing services. We always support our customers in the installation of our systems.

For operators

We offer testing, engineering as well as consultation services to operators as well as transport and logistics companies. Our tasks include consultation and support for route tests, registration tests as well as stationary or mobile tests on bogie frames, car bodies and components. In addition, we provide support in the area of​control, for instance, in procurement, production, inspection and approval management.

We also provide engineering services to regulatory authorities and other public railway institutions In doing so, we test and evaluate the components for durability, handling, strength, vibrations, derailment behaviour and lots more using state-of-the-art testing technology.
