From 3D prototype to working in China in 72 hours
Across the world, modern trains are getting faster and rail networks are getting busier which means the rails of rail networks are under greater stress and demand. Therefore, the track needs to be inspected regularly to prevent any major accidents. Iain Veitch, rail engineer at Sperry which manufactures test systems for the rail industry, explains how rapid prototyping demonstrates British engineering is world-class.
