Currently Metallurgtrans LLC holds 3 invention patent rights, 8 patents for utility model, 2 patents for industrial model, including licenses issued by Ukrainian, Belorussian, Kazakh, Polish and German institutions. Coming to the final stage are applications pending for patenting in Hungary. Modernization of the generally known design of universal patform allows transportation of diverse range of iron and steel industry produce (slabs, ingots, square billets, plates etc) as well as freight of 20- and 40-feet containers.
We use private modernized universal platforms of 13-401-35 and 13-4012-35 model.
Use of modernized platforms allows to lower hauling costs of the enterprises when shipping finished goods.
Full carrying capacity of the platform allows to decrease the number of wagon transportations by 35%. Direct economy when using platforms constitutes 1,5 hrv per ton of carried freight.
Our specialists have developed a project for modernization of the 13-4012-35 and 13-401-35 types of the platform. After successful tests, on the 16-18th of May 2006 the platform has been added to the "Model of freight wagons" guide by the The Council for Rail Transport of CIS States.
