Students and faculty were taken to the manufacturing line of rail coaches where they were shown working process of different shops including Sheet metal shop, Paint shop, Bogie shop, and Furnishing shop. In sheet metal shop the overhead position, left, right and bottom position of rail coach were also shown in process from the metal sheets with the help of Cutting of metals sheets, welding of metal sheets by Butt Seam welding, spot welding, TIG welding, and after the two processes the assembly of frame being finalized.
Cutting of sheets being done by laser Bystenic and by pressure applied was demonstrated by RCF resource person. Students also got an opportunity to see the paint shop, the frames of rail coaches being painted to their desired colors. In bogie shop the attachment of the frame and lower part (suspension system, tiers and other parts ) is done by the welding process and some other processes. The braking system in old coaches includes band brakes whereas in the coaches being manufactured with updated technology includes disc brakes for usage instead of band brakes.
Students and Faculty also observed manufacturing and design practice of special category coaches like Double Decker Coaches. Students’ Feedback RCF was a very good to give a lot of knowledge to us about the manufacturing of different parts. We saw different types of machines used in factory and also various CNC machines like drilling in operation. The whole production line was observed in operation with new technology and machines. The employees were found very helpful in answering our queries. We had only one hour to see whole production line in factory, this was only drawback of factory.
Otherwise it was a great experience for us. Inderjeet Singh, Mechanical Engineering Good experience about the manufacturing and making of railway coaches.
