Our company has been successfully producing various railway track components for many years. Currently, our portfolio includes mainly SZN self-adjusting facing point locks for turnouts. Their type code is SZS.
Since they are relatively specialized products, some basic information can be found below that makes it easier to use the nomenclature in this branch.
Railway turnouts are positions where tracks are split to allow trains to change tracks. Depending on the environmental conditions and the standard of the track on a given line, different turnouts are used. They are differentiated by a few characteristics, which are reflected in turnout coding.
140; 150; 190; 205; 300; 500; 760; 1200; 2500
1:4,8; 1:5; 1:6,6; 1:7; 1:7,5; 1:9; 1:10; 1:12; 1:14; 1:18,5; 1:26,5
There are also many other design features in turnout descriptions, however, these are the main parameters specified at the beginning of turnout codes. The most typical turnouts used in Polish railway tracks are as follows:
Each turnout includes three main elements: switch, frog and rails connecting the switch with the frog, while the switch is the main actuating device to move the train from one track to another. The switch is controlled with the locking device including the switch motor and the point lock.
Basically there are two types of locks: hook type and slide type. In Poland, the most popular are the slide-type point locks. They are included in our portfolio.
The following components are included in a typical slide-type point lock:
Additionally, the lock includes some minor elements: eccentric adjusting pin, locking pin, slide bush, connector, frame, centric sleeves, spacers and cotter pins.
All these components are available in our current portfolio.
