Rail and rolling stock

High-quality power tools and service for the global rail industry

Ever since the first railway system emerged in 1820, progress has brought us reliable speed and endurance in mobility. The growing emphasis on rail-bound transportation has led to higher production levels and new demands for everyone in the industry.

Today, trains remain the backbone of modern transportation, driving commerce and connecting cities and industries. They play a crucial role in sustainable mobility, reducing traffic congestion and environmental impact. As it is one of the most energy-efficient transport modes, the railway industry is growing rapidly, driven by the demand for sustainable transportation.

 

This growth and the increasing number of trains present challenges for manufacturers and maintenance depots, who must meet the industry's demands for quality and efficiency.

 

Atlas Copco, which began as a locomotives and railroad car manufacturer in 1892, has a long history of making tools used to produce railroad equipment. Since then, Atlas Copco has focused on improving productivity, quality, operator ergonomics, and safety, in the rail and rolling stock industry.

 

Staying on track with the fast-paced evolution of the Rail industry

In modern high-speed rail, where trains often exceed 300 km/h, precision and durability are both critical. Atlas Copco is here to help provide tools and solutions for cutting-edge technologies to enhance your efficiency, prevent errors, reduce downtime, and improve your overall performance, benefitting not only your bottom line but also providing you with tools to align with the growing demand for sustainability.

 

Smarter Manufacturing in Smart Factories

The Industry 4.0 Smart Factory is a digitized and highly automated manufacturing facility that uses connected devices, machinery and production systems to continuously collect and share data. Data that can be used to improve processes as well as proactively address any issues that may arise along the production line.
