20130087068DRIVER'S CAB OF MAGNETICALLY LEVITATED TRAIN AND MANUFACTURING METHOD THEREOF - A driver's cab of a magnetically levitated train and a manufacturing method thereof are disclosed. The manufacturing method comprises the steps of: processing and obtaining two-dimensional framework components, and then assembling the two-dimensional framework components into a three-dimensional framework; making a three-dimensional cover skin with a small curved surface die-less forming process; and assembling the three-dimensional cover skin on the three-dimensional framework. The driver's cab comprises a three-dimensional framework and a three-dimensional cover skin assembled on the three-dimensional framework, wherein a plurality of two-dimensional framework components are mutually connected together to form the three-dimensional framework. Forming the three-dimensional framework by assembling the two-dimensional framework components can efficiently simplify the manufacturing process, lower the manufacturing cost, and improve the carrying capacity of the driver's cab of a magnetically levitated train.04-11-2013
20090013900CAB ISOLATION SYSTEM FOR A LOCOMOTIVE - Provided is a cab isolation system for a locomotive is provided including a cab having a front and a rear. The cab isolation system further includes a pivot located generally near the rear of the cab and at least one spring generally located near the front of the cab. In another embodiment, dampers may further be provided and generally located near the front of the cab. In another embodiment, lateral links may further be provided and generally located near the front of the cab. This system may include any of the above elements, alone or in combination, to provide for a cab isolation system for isolating a locomotive cab from engine generated structure borne noise and vibration, while lower frequency track induced motions are not magnified.01-15-2009
