Among the research projects being featured are a plug-in control cabin and a new system for monitoring the condition of freight wagons, as well as thermographic examinations of wheels and the use of a clearance profi le scanner to measure and monitor rail track, plus advanced logistical and IT solutions for rail freight traffi c. The German Aerospace Centre will be using a full-scale mock-up at InnoTrans to demonstrate innovative construction methods for double- decker rail vehicles.


After the trade fair, from September 18-21, the wider public will get access on September 22-23 to the outdoor displays and tracks, which host one of the fair’s best-known features: the outdoor standard gauge sidings allowing rolling stock to be exhibited in its natural environment.


InnoTrans 2012 will feature fi ve trade fair segments: Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Tunnel Construction, Interiors and Public Transport. The display areas have been fully-booked for months, emphasising just how many exhibitors have been keen to be represented at InnoTrans.

World fi rsts


InnoTrans is an ideal arena for many leading companies in the rail sector to launch new and advanced technologies. There are countless examples over the following pages, and also making their debuts are two TRAXX locomotives from Bombardier, high-speed grinding trains from Vossloh, the new series of Tramlink modular trams, and Patentes Talgo is presenting the prototype of its high-speed train for the fi rst time.


Leading Chinese manufacturers at InnoTrans


For the fi rst time the two largest Chinese manufacturers of locomotives and rolling stock, CSR and CNR, will be exhibiting in Hall 9, where the China Academy of Railway Sciences and other exhibitors will also be represented, providing information about the latest innovations from the country’s railway industry.


The China South Locomotive & Rolling Stock Corporation (CSR) and CNR Corporation, the equivalent company in the north of China, are among the world’s leading manufacturers of locomotives and rolling stock.


Yang Xiong-Jing, manager for global business development for CNR, said: “We are making use of this leading trade fair in order to study the market and we are looking forward to presenting our rail vehicles to the world. High speed trains, powerful locomotives, metro rolling stock and freight wagons – we are presenting our complete range of vehicles at InnoTrans 2012.”


Bi Yupeng, Trade Fair Manager for CSR, said: “What the World Cup represents for football fans, that is what InnoTrans means to rail experts. It is unfortunate that CSR has previously only been represented at the fair by subsidiaries, but this year the entire group is exhibiting here. Our display includes vehicles for public transport, which have been specifi cally designed to meet the needs of different cities.”
