The transit and people moving industry is a well-established, demanding, and highly competitive group of business and government partnerships. We are proud to be well regarded among this esteemed industry. We work with the OEM Car builders and the various North American Transit Authorities. We are one of the few companies in the world that can claim expertise on both sides of the electrical interface. If you are looking for solutions to power trains or other forms of people movers (like PRT), look no further!
TransTech designs and manufactures long life, low resistance carbon collector strips and assemblies for pantographs. Our carbon collector strips are known to be light weight, high electrical conductivity, cause minimal arcing and have the lowest friction resistance on the market.
The industry's best designs optimize the wear life of our customer's overhead catenary wire while holding up to concussion that occurs during everyday use. With design, manufacturing and testing of our carbon collectors located under one United States based roof, we can continuously improve our product designs and quickly respond to our customers' needs.
Our pantograph carbon collector strips offer integrated end horns that maintain contact in the most challenging situations. We have auto drop and impact detection systems which help maximize the wear life of our carbon collectors and pantographs.
frost® Ground Contacts are used to prevent current backflow on railway vehicles. Preventing the current backflow protects the railway vehicle from damage caused by overheating. The ground contacts are installed at the axles at the bogie of the railway vehicle and absorb the current backflow via special carbons.
TransTech utlizes Arthur Flury Components to ensures that systems maximize their performance. Our engineered solutions offer high performance products and we work with our customers to manage the entire life cycle of your system from installation to routine maintenance.
TransTech is the preferred pantograph supplier to North American transit authorities and car builders. We supply our pantographs to the Transit Authorities that service over 80% of the revenue miles in North America. We design and manufacture pantographs found in high speed railway, light rail train, and intercity rail systems nationwide.
Third rail shoe gear is used to supply power to railway vehicles. The shoe gear collects power from the third rail and supplies that power to the railway vehicle. TransTech supplies Stemmann and Brecknell-Willis Style shoe gear.
TransTech holds the original patents for the composite rail that is so prevalent as third rail power today, but we continued innovating and now provide a superior, stainless-steel capped aluminum rail that fits many of the same profiles as the composite rail. Our technology is second-to-none. We create a rail that lasts longer than the composite rail and performs better.
