A locomotive manufacturer provides the data model for a traction motor that is integrated in the bogie. Task: continuous, reliable air supply to the traction motor. In this respect, the motion profiles occurring during travel and the pressure conditions in the air system have to be taken into account.
Using motion studies and specifications provided by the customer, MöllerWerke works out the maximum deflection coordinates and designs a set of traction motor ventilation bellows. This is graphically integrated in the customer file. The calculated motions are verified on our own test bench. The customer is given the concept with the offer.
The customer places the order. The drawing tool is placed on a CNC-controlled drawing machine, and a prototype is first produced.
Once the customer has tested and approved the prototype, serial production and delivery can be started.
