Export Hub

The Export Hub will be of value to anyone looking to start or expand their export activities and is open to companies of all sizes and disciplines and will enable visitors to find out about opportunities for exporting goods and services to the rest of world.  Exhibitors from key Government agencies and organisations will provide advice and support specific to their needs and access to collaborative opportunities across the world.

The Export Hub features:

  • The Department for International Trade (DIT)
  • UK Export Finance
  • The Intellectual Property Office

Supporting these Departments the hub will also feature an array of specialist personnel from:

  • The Rail Alliance, and Rail Alliance Middle East
  • The Railway Industry Association
  • The Eurail Clusters Initiative

Visitors are invited to meet with exhibitors within the hub on a drop in basis, or you can pre-book an appointment with the Department for International Trade by emailing Marion Doherty MIEx, International Trade Adviser on [email protected]

The Hub is not just a passive feature, we want to offer as much advice and information as possible and would like to draw your attention to the following events within the hub:

Innovation Zone

The UK Rail Research and Innovation Network (UKRRIN) brings together 16 of the rail industry’s leading suppliers, together with a consortium of universities, to create the world-class Centres of Excellence that will be at the heart of the programme. UKRRIN is made up of three academic Centres of Excellence: Digital Systems led by University of Birmingham, Rolling Stock led by the University of Huddersfield, and Infrastructure led by the University of Southampton; and a Centre of Excellence in Testing, led by Network Rail: at-scale test facilities including Network Rail’s Rail Innovation and Development Centres at Melton and Tuxford, London Underground’s Acton R&D Centre, and Quinton Rail Technology Centre at Long Marston.

These Centres of Excellence will deliver world-leading research from inception to test and to market application (both for UK and global markets). With advanced, purpose-built simulation and testing facilities they will provide the ability to deliver new products and technology to market more quickly. UKRRIN will be instrumental in placing the UK railway supply chain firmly on the world map for leadership in innovation and change in railway technology, products and services.

S&T Zone

Network Rail is returning to Rail Live 2018, to host the Rail Live – S&T Zone. The Zone brings together a diverse range of the Network Rail supply chain with the S Zone focusing on signalling technology. The demonstration areas are designed to show trackside equipment in a realistic environment, without the dangers presented by being trackside. Many of the exhibitors are taking advantage of this space to provide live demonstrations of a variety of new innovations, these include:

ilecsysWorking in collaboration with Viper Innovations – Cable Guardian, ilecsys are going to have a live working retrofittable Micro FSP/Cable Guardian/ATL backplate, fully powered to enabling live demonstrations throughout the show.

ilecsys have been doing some innovative things in regards to backfillable bases and piling solutions alongside VMS. A ground mount signal and DIS box mounted to a GRP backfillable base will be installed in the demo area. The Normal signal will be mounted using a Collis post and will be mounted using the Strucsol tree root foundation.

UnipartUnipart Rail will be demonstrating a whole range of technologies, and also showing their concept for the Condition Based Supply Chain (CBSC). Amongst the tech is their ALT (Assisted Lift Trunnion) adapted for use with CCTV cameras at level crossings, signalling and power location cases, pin brazing, lift and handling equipment, legacy signalling technology and the market-leading Unipart Dorman iLS. The CBSC portal - Paradigm Insight - will also be demo'd, so if you missed it at Infrarail, this is your chance to see how it works.

SiemensSiemens is excited to demonstrate new technology in Remote Condition Monitoring and Level Crossing Safety. Our robust Surelock & Linear Back Drive Points Drive System will be in operation as well as the S60 Level Crossing Barrier Machine which is currently being installed on the Carmarthenshire Project.

 

The Signalling Innovations Group @ Rail Live 2018

The Signalling Innovations Group has developed a range of signalling tools, exhibited at the SIG marquee. Live demonstrations will be offered throughout the show days and visitors will be given the opportunity to try out the tools for themselves:

PVP – is a 3D laser point cloud and multiple 4k video surveying tool that has been used to capture more than 8,000 miles of data to date. It has been successfully used on over 70 projects including major schemes such as Crossrail, HS2 and Western Electrification

 

ISP Sketch – Intelligent Scheme Plan Sketch provides graphical outputs for the assessment of design options and System Data Exchange Format (SDEF) output, enabling automated data entry and data sharing with other tools. An integrated time saving option is available when used in conjunction with SDEF.

 

SSIFT –When used in conjunction with other Signalling Innovation Group tools, SSiFT’s automated form population and data calculations reduce hours of form filling to just 6 minutes.
