ESG provides production support to all of DB Schenker’s UK Business
units and thus recognise the constant demand for cost effective
engineering approaches and continuous improvements.
Given ESG’s bogie and suspensions capabilities, we
routinely assist one such unit ie Axiom Rail in the provision of
technical input in connection with their TF25, AmIII and TF25SA
bogies & suspension systems.
With around 5000 units in use in the UK, it
represents an important product stream to Axiom Rail where quality and
safety is of paramount concern.
ESG provides solutions to their various manufacturing problems such as:
- Alternative materials / suppliers / processes
- Use of materials that fall outside of current specification
- Scrutiny of test data & reports
- Introduction of new designs and components
ESG is also able to offer, cost reduction and mass
reduction initiatives, that help reduce the cost of the final product
as well as improving its performance and hence marketability to the end
