Paint stripping for train reman
Bogies are an essential part of a train as these constructions form its drive system and guidance mechanism on the railway track. Generally, a bogie consists of a steel frame containing the suspension, the wheels, brake equipment and in some cases also the transmission. Mounted underneath the locomotive and the carriages bogies are under severe mechanical impact and fulfill their task under harsh circumstances. However, as they are expensive, re-manufacturing them at the end of the life cycle often pays off. During the reman process there are several different cleaning challenges. Today we will have a closer look at a particularly demanding one: the removal of old paint systems from bogie frames.
