PJM now also offers wheelset expertise for the leading rail freight country, the USA. The AAR WABL Committee (Association of American Railroads) has voted to approve PJM for performing strength calculations of wheels according to the S-660 and S-669 standards. This new area of expertise is also already in use on a project. "We are very pleased that we can now also offer our customers this consultancy service for the use of rail vehicles in North America," explains Martin Joch.
In the field of wheelsets, PJM has built up profound know-how over the years. Here, too, the link between calculation and testing plays a major role. The expertise includes calculations as well as the design of instrumented wheelsets.
