Hitachi’s Train Manufacturing and Assembly Plant

Sectors: Rail
Applications: Type HD clamp was used to secure low speed rails

Summary:

Lindapter’s M20 Type HD clamp was used to secure low speed rails throughout Hitachi’s train manufacturing and assembly plant in Newton Aycliffe, Country Durham.

The rails provide engineers with access to be able to construct the new InterCity Express (IEP) trains and AT200 commuter trains in the new 43,000 m2 facility . The Type HD clamp enabled a fast installation of the rails on three different levels to allow engineers to work on various parts of the trains.

The Lindapter Type HD is a family of four rail clips: ‘Spring’, ‘Hard’,‘Soft’ and 'Isolated' all of which facilitate quick and precise rail alignment by allowing a high degree of lateral adjustability. The Type HD is easy to install and will fit most rail types in low speed applications.
