Market innovation strategy consulting for Curtiss-Wright Drive Technologies - Second module ordered
Recently, PROSE demonstrated paramount competency in delivering profound technical market know-how on tilting technology for Curtiss-Wright Drive Technology in a first workshop at our office in Winterthur. CEO Stefan Bühler introduced Curtiss-Wright Drive Technology to PROSE’s rich curriculum vitae in mechatronic solutions for railway bogies. PROSE Senior Project Engineer Armin Burth guided the customer through the mysteries of bogie engineering and its modern applications (i.e. tilting technology, radial steering, active roll compensation, active lateral control). Ueli Brugger from Aucodys GmbH (
www.aucodys.ch) supported the workshop with a mechatronically biased view on tilting technology and its future development in railway industry.
Thus, convinced, Curtiss-Wright Drive Technology has ordered the second module, where PROSE collects important market information from traffic planning authorities, locally and internationally – as well as from railway operators and integrators in Europe. Within four workshops, all the relevant direct and indirect customer views on Curtiss-Wright Drive Technology deliverables are carefully collected and condensed to give the customer a full understanding on the future needs of their customers in railway business.
Within a final workshop (still to be ordered) PROSE will enable Curtiss-Wright Drive Technologies to create a business segment strategy for railway industry.
Curtiss-Wright electromechanical and electrohydraulic products are frequently used in industrial applications that require a rugged, dependable solution: I.e. Curtiss-Wright camera crane technology is used in the film industry to stabilise cameras, enabling a steady shot in the roughest terrain.
The stabilisation technology is used within the railway industry to manage the amount of tilt that occurs as a train travels around a bend, to ensure safety and optimal passenger comfort. In the food industry this technology is used in the production of chocolate and cream.(https://www.curtisswrightds.com/products/electromechanical/industrial/)

PROSE investigates the running safety under longitudinal compressive forces for London Underground
Germany-based manufacturer Kirow Ardelt GmbH is to deliver eight-axle railway cranes and switch tilters to London Underground (LU). These on-track machines (OTM) and additional wagons form the London Underground’s Modular Points and Crossing (MPaC) system. PROSE investigated the running safety under longitudinal compressive forces (LCF) of predefined consists of the MPaC system on LU as well as NR network in different specific coupling configurations i.e. central buffer coupler (drophead buckeye) and screw coupler with side buffers.
