RTSA – Qld Chapter Seminar: Multiple Unit Traction Motor Bearing Failure Analysis

October 23, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm UTC+10

Queensland Rail aims to be Australia’s best performing railway, delivering safe, on time, customer-focused and efficient rail services.  To achieve this, traction motor bearing failure is being investigated to determine how and when rolling element bearings are likely to fail.  Traction motor bearing failure has previously been unpredictable on Queensland Rail rolling stock and can contribute to service delays or cancellations.  Therefore, engineers at Queensland Rail are developing techniques to diagnose and predict rolling element bearing failure through vibration condition monitoring.

Our keynote speakers will be Voon Wong, Andrew Roche and Rachel Quarman from Queensland Rail Operating Assets Engineering who were all directly involved with the project. They will provide you with an insight into the project, the processes they used, and the progress of the analysis on traction motor bearings.
