We helped to design a new grab pole, as the existing design did not give passengers enough area to hold onto.
The new design had to provide a solution that would help protect passenger stability whilst the train in motion.
To replace the current handrail with one vertical pole with minimal impacts on the end wall trimming for all the eight cars in the set.
Perform a finite element analysis (FEA) to ensure the deflection is within the acceptable range.
Perform a bolt calculation using COBRA software.
We designed the grab pole so that the changes to the end wall were minimal.
Our team retained all clamping and fastening details as per the original design.
We redesigned the mounting brackets for the top side fixation.
FEA was carried out to ensure that the pole is stiffened enough for the load acting on it.
Design of the grab pole in vertical form to provides a better grip for the passenger
Top fixation concept design with min impact to the surroundings
Minimum changes to the existing car body
Top fixation part will work with all the eight car bodies
