Prototype production, model construction and mold making
The economical fiber composite FRP (fiber-reinforced plastic) can be used for many applications and is characterized by a high degree of strength and stability. Its non-susceptibility to corrosion is also a significant benefit for use in the mobility sector.
We can provide product development, prototype and sample construction, mold and model making as well as the production and assembly of ready-to-install components. We are able to produce complex component configurations and shapes in accordance with individual customer requirements. Also available as part of our comprehensive service is the production of spare parts as well as the repair of defective products from other manufacturers.
Areas of application for buses and trains
We supply both German and international railway vehicle manufacturers with high quality paneling systems made of fiber-reinforced plastic. FRP components are used, for example, in roof constructions in hybrid and CNG buses as well as for vehicle front and rear ends.
Our interior paneling elements made of FRP are used, for example in the locomotive cab of the Deutsche Bahn's ICE 4 trains. For this new prestige order, the FRP blanks are initially produced in a manual laminating process. In the completion of the units, various other metal parts, rubber profiles and insulation elements are added together with connecting pieces made of metal, rubber or insulation material. During the subsequent assembly of the components, heating elements, passenger counting sensors and light sensors are premounted.
