Our Approach

PROSE was commissioned to develop and manufacture four customised dummy bogies for the depot. The main challenge was to design robust bogies suitable for use in the demanding conditions of a workshop environment. These bogies not only need to have a high load capacity but also have to offer flexible adaptability to different vehicle types and maintenance requirements of the depot. The manufacturing process required carefully selecting materials and technologies that ensure long-term durability and resistance to mechanical stresses and environmental influences. In addition, special attention was paid to ergonomics and user-friendliness to ensure the safety of depot employees and increase the efficiency of maintenance processes. The technical specifications were worked out in detail in close cooperation with the customer to ensure that the finished bogies are optimally adapted to the depot’s specific requirements and existing infrastructure.

PROSE tackled this task with a focused approach to quality and functionality. The four dummy-bogies were manufactured under strict quality control and using high-quality materials. Each bogie was carefully designed to meet the specific requirements of the depot, with particular attention paid to durability and ease of maintenance. The noise reduction target of >1dB set at the beginning of the project was successfully achieved with a theoretical analysis.

Customer benefit

​The provision of these four customised dummy-bogies offers the customer considerable advantages. Thanks to the improved reliability and robustness of the bogies, maintenance work can be carried out more efficiently and safely. This leads to a significant reduction in downtime and an increase in operational safety in the depot. The customised bogies, therefore, not only support daily routines but also help to improve the service life and performance of the vehicles maintained in the depot.
