Project Description

Railway Electrical Contacts

Application: Mass Transit Electrical Systems

Problem: The customer approached MW Industries with unreliable electrical contacts in the field that were wicking and sticking, causing failures in the electrical systems of the trains and costly warranty issues.

The MWI Solution:

  • Provided extensive engineering support over the course of a year-long application redesign process
  • Produced a moveable electrical component to exact work instructions
  • Developed intensive internal cycle and pull testing to assure zero defects


MW Industries was able to eliminate the warranty issues and retrofits. The customer regained market share and saw additional growth from their new designs.
