Johnny bytte gruvan mot vagnsverkstäder – ”Jag gillar korta ledtider”


Med bakgrund inom industrin ända sedan studenten har Johnny Lehto gått igenom flera arbetsgivare och roller. 1997 började han arbeta under jord i Kirunagruvan och så sent som i september i år fick han sin första roll ovan jord – som underhållschef hos Kiruna Wagon.

Nej, skämt å sido, men att arbeta utomhus och ibland under soliga dagar i Pitkijärvi är riktigt härligt. Jag hade varit under jord sedan jag gick ut gymnasiet och kände att det var dags för något [...]

”Vi jobbar från jord till bord här” – Carl Ordéus valde bort storstan


Efter några år på Västkusten bestämde sig Carl Ordéus; Götet i all sin ära men det kändes aldrig riktigt rätt. Då var Kiruna med sitt lugn och smällkalla, snörika vintrar, det självklara valet. Att han sedan fick jobb på Kiruna Wagon förstärkte bara känslan av att han gjort rätt. Hur hamnade du i Kiruna? – Jag kommer ursprungligen från Uppsala men pluggade i Luleå på universitet ett tag. När jag sedan flyttade ner till Göteborg kom jag att sakna vintern men inte minst lugnet här i norr. Då blev det att jag flyttade till Kiruna för åtta [...]

Maintenance as the link to efficient railway logistics


In the world of railway logistics, requirements are high regarding safety and quality. The price tag for transportation companies who want to meet the demands could therefore be expensive. But through preventive maintenance it is possible to decrease disruptions, while at the same time optimising the quality of rail wagons and reducing wear costs to a minimum. Those companies who succeed often work according to similar concepts. They have ongoing collaborations with partners and suppliers, as well as a plan for regular preventive maintenance. Another key to success is the meticulous documentation of measures taken to keep their wagon fleet [...]

Side Loader XL – new video


Side Loader XL is an innovative freight wagon with fully opening sides for unrestricted and super-efficient loading and unloading by forklift or wheel loader. Operated safely by a remote control, the entire 20-metre-long side opens vertically into a revolutionary large loading door, without supporting columns or sliding doors. We are very proud of the wagon's superlight truss construction, which makes the long door light, flexible and yet sufficiently strong. The design enables swift and safe access to the 51-square-metre loading area. In predecessors to this wagon, columns or sliding doors were common solutions. Our mission was to remove any elements [...]

The TBU adapter is the modern alternative to bearing boxes


Simplified maintenance through modularisation and lower life-cycle costs are two cornerstones of Kiruna Wagon’s offering. Our proprietary TBU adapter is an example of products that reduce costs and increase the availability of railway wagons. TBU adapters offer an effective way to move from earlier bearings and bearing boxes to using modern, inexpensive and accessible TBUs that are mounted on the wheel axle and connect to the simple adapter. This is a good alternative for new construction, but it is also easy to calculate the return on investment by rebuilding your existing wagons for more efficient wheel axle changes. TBU stands [...]
