Testing of Container Attachments for Impact Resistance on Freight Wagons

05. April 2024

In addition to our Notified Body activities for the Interoperability of Railways, we also conduct testing activities in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 standard. Recently, we have carried out a particularly intriguing crush test on a freight wagon loaded with full containers, with a specific focus on testing the container attachments.

The objective of the test was to demonstrate the capability of the container attachments to withstand an impact force of 3G during a collision. This rigorous test ensures the structural integrity and safety of the container attachments under real-world conditions, thereby contributing to the overall reliability and safety of rail transport systems.
