Akiem technik’s purpose: ensure the very highest levels of rolling stock availability and reduce downtime so that you can continue to operate, everywhere, all the time, at 100% capacity in total confidence and complete safety.
We carry out these overhauls in accordance with manufacturers’ maintenance plans, for example after eight years or between 1 and 1.2 million kilometres travelled (revision R1), or after 16 years and between 2 and 2.4 million kilometres travelled (revision R2).
Rolling stock is fully dismantled during complete revisions, which last from two to six weeks depending on the type of operation (R1 or R2). Components such as braking systems, bogies and fans will be overhauled and parts are replaced as necessary. Once reassembled, your rolling stock is comprehensively tested to check that it will operate in perfect safety during the years to come.
We are ECM and ISO 90001 certified.
As well as the standard preventative and corrective maintenance procedures, a number of specific additional operations have to be carried out from time to time, notably to replace parts. We have all the know-how required to schedule, prepare and carry out these vital maintenance procedures.
Standard maintenance procedures include, for example:
- preventative maintenance based on kilometres travelled or hours worked (inspection of safety and radio equipment, brake overhauls, etc.)
- inspection of air pressure tanks
- changing cab screens and side widows
- delivery and handover inspections
- ultrasonic testing of wheels and axle shafts
- wheel reprofiling
- locomotive cleaning
- fault-finding and corrective maintenance as requested by the customer
- software updates and data recording
