ENGINEERING RELIABILITY PREMIER’S METRO BOGIE PROJECT

I

n the last issue (the 23rd Issue of Premier Today), we gave you a broad overview of Premier’s heavy engineering division, its beginnings and evolution. In this issue, we would like to delve deeper and give you an indepth picture on another key project/product that our Company’s heavy engineering division manufactures—bogie frames and end under frames for railway metro bogies. Although historically Premier Ltd. has mainly been associated with cars, it is today more œ’—’ęŒŠ—•¢ȱ ’—Ÿ˜•ŸŽȱ ’—ȱ ‘’‘ȬŽŒ‘—˜•˜¢ȱ ȱ machine (capital goods) and heavy engineering businesses located at its plant in Chinchwad, Pune. Quick to adapt to the changing times, this division today has built an enviable reputation for its products’ quality and reliability.

Cover Story - Metro Bogie Project

Why Premier entered the Metro segment “With India’s urban population likely to grow from 400 million in 2011 to over 600 million by 2030, there will be greater demand for quality and sophisticated transport solutions like metro rail and monorail, and this will ensure tremendous growth prospects for global transport infrastructure companies, at least for the next two decades.

Premier's contribution „Bogie frame: This can be of inside frame

type where the main frame and bearings are between the wheels or, more commonly, of outside frame type where the main frame and bearings are outside the wheels. „Suspension: This is to absorb shocks between the bogie frame and rail vehicle body.

„At least one wheel set, composed of an

axle with bearings and a wheel at each end. „Brake equipment: Two main types are

used—brake shoes that are pressed against the tread of the wheel, and disc brakes and pads.
