Japan: Kawasaki says that faulty wheel-parts caused a crack in the under-care of the bullet-train


Behind the country’s prestigious bullet trains, the Japanese company said that it has supplied nearly 150 faulty wheel parts that can crack and potentially cause derailment.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries started investigations in December after a crack in a part of a “Shinkansen” (bullet-train) vehicle.

Kausakashi President Yoshinori Kannanaye said, “I apologize for the great troubles and worries”.


Steel frames on bullet train undercarriage thinner than stipulated

Kawasaki Heavy Industries found that the possible cause of the crack (on Shikshanan undercarriage) was that the steel frame connected to the wheels was attached to wheels to connect the wheels against the rules.

He said similar problems were found in the total number of two operators on bullet trains in 146 parts, which allegedly used to exchange them, although there was no immediate fear of cracks.

On December 11, 17, the crew on the bullet train reported a burning odor and weird noise, when a station was left out of southern Japan.

The train was closed for check at Nagoya Station in Central Japan and inspectors discovered the crack.

If the train was continued to run, the crack could have been the reason for the derailment in the worst case; Passengers were disturbed
