Rail Applications

Hutchinson has been serving the rail industry for 80 years, with products used on light rail vehicles, metro transport, intercity, regional, and high speed rail systems for the global rail market. Hutchinson designs and produces a wide array of primary and secondary rail car and locomotive suspension components for numerous rail vehicle types.

Vibration control mounts for onboard electrical cabinets, locomotive, and trackside signal control boxes are also made by Hutchinson. Combined, these product lines provide passenger safety, comfort and protection of rail vehicles from track disturbances.

We prefer to develop technology focused on customer needs. Current work for some customers includes Active Vibration Control and “Smart Structures” (incorporating shock and vibration control directly into the structure of the customers’ payload).

Our focus in Active Vibration Control is in cost control and robustness; the technical solutions have been around for some time, but commercialization into robust, cost conscious products is our goal, and we are making great strides.

Smart Structures save cost and space envelope while reducing part count and improving performance.

Hutchinson has been a global leader in rubber and other elastomeric materials technology for over 160 years. We are constantly innovating, improving performance and enabling customers to reach greater heights with smaller envelopes and better payload protections. Advancements are made in fire and smoke toxicity, heat resistance, longevity and fatigue life, and many materials properties such as damping and low and high temperature performance as a function of temperature.
