Oleo has a complete range of elevator buffers for every application offering a high quality product with minimum life-cycle costs. Our elevator buffers are sold worldwide offering exceptional performance across a wide mass and speed range. Oleo buffers have worldwide certification and approvals which include EN81.1, ASME17.1 GB7588, EK1002.
Many passenger and freight locations are terminal [end of line] situations, on the rare occasions the train fails to stop or slow down sufficiently the risk is that it collides with or overrides the end of the platform/line.
Fitting efficient and effective end stop systems will protect passengers, rolling stock and infrastructure in the event of a train failing to stop.
Oleo's industrial energy absorption solutions offer products and services for dockside applications, steelworks, rail infrastructure, and other specialist bespoke applications. Oleo has a presence in all major ports worldwide and with its network of distributors, can offer a complete consultancy service including after sales service.
Rail safety awareness and regulations are increasing for the protection of passengers and rolling stock. In addition, there is a need to have higher coupling speeds and a greater amount of recoverable impact energy absorption to reduce life cycle costs.
Rail crash tests are not usually feasible and Oleo offer the unique combination of crash energy management simulations correlated with impact energy absorption devices.
Oleo is an established engineering company and a leading expert in energy absorption technology, designing and manufacturing energy absorption solutions for the rail, elevator and industrial sectors and for end stop solutions. We provide a wide range of products, including hydraulic buffers, dampers, lift buffers and simulation software. Oleo has been producing hydraulic energy absorption solutions for over sixty years with over 1,000,000 units in circulation.
Our ongoing investment in research and development ensures that we are continually updating our designs and introducing new products and services to our portfolio.
Oleo's expertise is not limited to design and manufacture, our simulation software is a valuable tool, used to analyse impacts. Our research and development has taken this simulation software to the next level and is able to offer 2D and 3D modelling encompassing linear and non-linear dynamic analysis.
Our products are sold through our offices in the United Kingdom, Germany, China, India and the USA and through a wide range of worldwide distributors.
