China on the fast track

China is already operating trains that run at more than 200 kilometers per hour on 20 000 kilometers of track, more than the rest of the world put together, and the network is expanding rapidly.

A giant factory in Qingdao turns out three fleets of high-speed trains every four days. CRRC Qingdao Sifang designs and manufactures nearly half of China's high-speed trains.

The company has been using Atlas Copco nutrunners and wrenches for years, and it has recently purchased another 60 Power Focus controllers and 180 virtual stations. The advanced tools have greatly enhanced assembly quality, reduced the chances of human error and improved the factory's ergonomics.

"Our production line operators are so happy that they can comfortably operate the tools with less muscle labor," says Guoyan Lv, a bogie assembly engineer at Qingdao Sifang.
