Positive Train Control
Build rugged Positive Train Control electronic enclosures for 25,000 locomotives for North America. Move the project from casting engineering, through prototypes, to production casting tooling, production CNC tooling to finished product on a large scale. Government regulations, schedules, 5 railroads, the scale of the project and the logistics made this an interesting challenge.
We collaborated with “stake holders” to identify requirements and best way forward to achieve outstanding project results. We reengineered cast aluminum electronics case working within design constraints. We CAD designed and CNC machined production casting tooling for our Sinto automated precision molding system for scalable production. We utilized two horizontal CNC Haas EC 400 Pallet Pool and Haas EC 500 and built castings and CNC machined parts simultaneously.
