Aluminium for passenger trains
Rolling stock builders are looking for lightweight designs and tailored manufacturing, for structural profiles and for exterior or interior components. We offer you all this – and more.
Rolling stock for train bodies
Aluminium is one of the main materials used in the construction of train bodies. Applications include:
- Body sides (side walls)
- Roof and floor panels
- Cant rails, which connect the floor of the train to the side wall
Less finishing work
Aluminium in train car bodies offers light weight and a uniform and smooth surface – there are no “waves” in the metal, as with steel. This means less finishing work after assembly and reduced production time.
Super-large aluminium components with friction stir welding
And by using friction stir welding technology, we can offer you super-large components with thin walls. This means tight tolerances and lower costs.
Modern trains contribute toward the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions caused by passenger transport. Aluminium reduces their mass, improving the environmental impact even more.
