Two pictures on this page summarise the breadth of William Cook’s capability in the rail sector.
The innovative Combination Coupler (5), which allows rail vehicles with
different types of coupler to be coupled together, was designed and
manufactured from cast and machined components, all 100% in-house.
The transverse bolster (2) comprises five steel castings, all individually machined before being welded together into the finished assembly. That assembly is then finish machined, pressure tested and painted, again 100% in-house.
