WH Kemp has been involved in rolling stock projects, rail signals, rail safety equipment and passenger gate and ticketing systems for more than thirty years.
WH Kemp is a long-term supply chain partner to those working within the rail industry with end customer contacts in companies such as Alstom and Knorr Bremse. Cable Assembly and Control Units for this sector not only require high specification Cable Harnessing operations to be in place, but also our skills and experience in providing the most appropriate materials, components and project management solutions.
Most recently we have worked with companies supplying Northern Rail, Cross Rail and London Underground.
WH Kemp manufacture complex customised pre-formed cable looms for Cross Rail gating systems that are designed to enable easy fitting when installation is taking place.
The team at WH Kemp have supported the design of the Wiring Harness for cutting edge touch screen ticketing and information machines that can be found in rail stations internationally. The machines mirror tablet and smartphone touchscreen functionality and displays, thereby improving the passenger experience through intuitive presentation of information such as fares, journey planning, running times and station maps. The Wiring Harnesses connect the various displays and hardware to provide additional public-facing services, including travel updates, social media posts, news, weather and local area information.
Our expertise extends to producing complex Formed Cable Looms for safety-critical equipment within the rail sector and other Wiring Harnesses of the highest quality. Naturally, quality is critical in the rail industry and the Cable Looms must withstand stress factors such as vibration, water ingress and large temperature ranges.
Cable Assemblies for the rail sector often require complex soldering, sleeving, potting and encapsulation and pressure testing. Naturally, WH Kemp has the right people with the right skills to undertake these Cable Loom builds and set up the electronic testing rigs for all such products.
We are proud of our culture and our ways of working. Our customers can rest assured that we have the right people, with the right attitude and the right skills to undertake their work.
