Couplers and Buffers
API Engineering has supplied train couplers and buffers to the railway and mining industries for over a decade. Our couplers and buffers are currently used by some of the world's most demanding mines.
Our semi-automatic couplers are manufactured to a range of different country specific standards and are known for their high quality and durability. The couplers are cast in accordance with customer drawings and specifications and supplied semi-finished or fully finished with locks and locking pins attached.
The buffers, one at each corner rail vehicle, are pulled together and compressed by the coupling device. API Engineering manufactures 'dumb' and spring-loaded buffers in a wide range of sizes and connection arrangements as per customer specification. As an essential part of the connection between rail carts, all couplers and buffers are thoroughly inspected prior to shipping to ensure highest quality standards are maintained.
Dump Cars and Dump Wheels
In addition to standard wagons API Engineering also supply components for dump cars and stations for both rotary and bottom dump car equipment and spares. Components include fabricated wagon frames, dump wheels and doors.
