Digital Technologies Will Help Increase Rail Freight

 On August 30, the VI International Salon of Equipment and Technologies "EXPO 1520" was opened on the territory of the VNIIZhT Experimental Ring in the city of Shcherbinka. The plenary session, the topic of which was the digital railway, was made by the Director of the Department of the Automotive Industry and Railway Engineering of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation  Denis Pak .

He spoke about the introduction of intelligent systems in the operation of rolling stock - this is one of the priority areas of the industry, laid down in the Strategy for the development of transport engineering industry of the Russian Federation until 2030.

According to Denis Pak, designing, modeling, testing of products are possible with the use of digital technologies and supercomputer capacities. An integral part of the digital industry is robotic production - from logistics to basic production.

At the moment, traditional materials are being replaced by innovative materials, in the design, metal is replaced by composite materials, LED lighting is used instead of usual, and so on. Technical solutions allow analyzing and transmitting the state of the car parts in motion. In addition, due to the use of digital technologies, wagons have been created that allow increasing freight traffic due to increased axle load and a reduction in the tare weight of the car. 

In addition, Denis Pak talked about the new generation diesel engines developed by order of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.

Most recently, in 2016, we demonstrated the results of the Federal Targeted Program of Diesel Power Generation, which ended in December 2015, within which, among other things, 5 perspective heavy engines of Transmashholding and the Sinara Group were developed ," he said. - This year (before the end of the year) we plan to conclude a SPIC for organizing the mass production of high-tech engines.
