CLW started Traction Motor manufacture from 1969 with Alsthom design of MG-1580 motors and TAO-659 motors and switched over to HS15250A, 850 HP Traction Motors for which technology was received from Hitachi, Japan. HS15250A Traction Motor production started in 1988-89. *
Now with the advent of three phase technology of locomotives from Bombardier Transportation, Switzerland, CLW has geared up to manufacture 1000 HP and 1500 HP state-of-the-art 3- Phase Traction Motors for freight (WAG-9) and passenger (WAP-5 & WAP-7) locomotives.
The different type of Traction Motors manufactured at CLW are following:-
3-PHASE TRACTION MOTOR TYPE 6FRA6068 & 6FXA 7059
3-Phase Tracation Motors type 6FRA6068 for WAG-9 and WAP-7 locomotives & 6FXA7059 for WAP-5 locomotive are being manufactured indigenously by CLW since the financial year 1998-99 & 1999-2000 respectively.With the production of 3-phase Traction Motor,CLW has entered the era of state of the art,3-phase technology.
(3-phaseTM type 6FRA6068) (3-phaseTM type 6FXA 7059)
* Produciton of Hiachi Traction Motor was stopped due to discontinuation of production of conventional Electric Locomotive type WAP-4/ WAG-7 from 2016-17.
