USE OF LIGHT-WEIGHT METAL ON THE PROTOTYPE FAD 150 WAGON

AUSRUESTUNG DES PROTOTYPS FAD 150 MIT LEICHTMETALLTEILEN

The 6-axle Fad 150 wagon is being designed for economical ore transport, and has been planned with a loading capacity of 100 t and a tare of 32 t for a 22-tonne axle load. The weight of the prototype is 35.59t, and to reduce this, experiments are being made to fit side walls and discharging flaps made to the lighweight metal Al Mg Si 1 F 32. After a year's use, the condition of these lightweight walls was found to be satisfactory, enabling the designers to reduce the wagon weight by 2.25 t.
