ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEM FOR TRUCK AND TRUCK PARTS OF SHINKANSEN ROLLING STOCK

Trucks of Shinkansen cars are inspected twice between general overhauls to assure the safety of parts essential to continued high-speed operation. To extend the reliability of the cars and reduce the inspection times, a system is used which replaces trucks that are to be inspected by others which are being returned to service after being inspected. This article explains the control system for trucks and their parts, including the speed and accuracy of handling the large number of documents involved with the inspection.
