Managing the most expensive rolling stock consumable is a challenge for operators and fleet maintainers globally. Together with tough targets (and penalties) for fleet availability, its no surprise that interest in innovative solutions to support rail operations are high on the agenda for visitors to Innotrans.

Yellow Group are delighted to be exhibiting the new launched Railathe at Innotrans 2018. The RaiLathe is an innovative and flexible new wheel reprofiling system offering a low cost solution to wheel turning. Designed with cost, accuracy and adaptability in mind, its versatility to managing wheelset maintenance, in the depot, in the running yard and in the field is second to none.

The RaiLathe has taken an established industry proven CNC lathe and created a drive system and periphery support services that enables the lathe to be safely operated in the European markets. Benefitting from the Yellow Groups technology and innovation company “Yellow Solutions”, significant investment has already taken place to develop this working solution for a key challenge in passenger, freight and light rail / metro operations.

Positioned in the heart of the Railway Technology zone of Innotrans, Hall 2.2, Yellow Group will be on stand 206.

Andy Kevins, Yellow Group Managing Director stated, “Innotrans is the biggest railway event in the world. To have time on this stage is a great opportunity to showcase the versatility and adaptability of the RaiLathe, to an international audience”. Andy continues “Innotrans has long been a source of innovation. We know that decisions makers use the show to identify solutions, products and services that enhance their capability. We are confident that the RaiLathe will be very well received”
“The GREAT Pavilion in Hall 2.2 has long been a ‘go-to’ location for international businesses seeking the quality offerings that UK rail is renowned for” reports Catherine Appleby, European Business Development Director. “We are absolutely thrilled to have such a key position at the show. Our campaign has already created strong interest and we welcome the opportunity to continue these discussions and met other interested parties at this huge event.”
