The high-speed maglev at 600 kilometers per hour is coming ! Successful test run!

On June 21st, CRRC Qingdao Sifang Locomotive and Rolling Stock Co., Ltd. undertaken a high-speed maglev test sample car with a speed of 600 kilometers per hour , which was successfully tested on the maglev test line of Tongji University in Shanghai , which marked an important breakthrough in the development of China’s high-speed maglev transportation system.

This test run is the first test of the test sample car, which achieved a breakthrough from static to dynamic operation. A total of more than 200 test points were completed in seven major items. The suspension guidance, speed measurement positioning, rail coupling, ground traction, and vehicle The key performances such as ground communication have been comprehensively tested , and a large amount of key data have been obtained. The key technical indicators have reached the design expectations, providing important technical support for the development and optimization of the subsequent high-speed maglev engineering prototype.

At present, the research and development of the high-speed maglev project is progressing smoothly, and the development of five marshalling engineering prototypes is also steadily advancing.

According to the plan, the prototype system of the high-speed maglev project with a speed of 600 kilometers per hour is expected to be off-line at the end of 2020, when it will form a full set of high-speed maglev technology and engineering capabilities.
