Our rail fastenings, cable ducts and switch components ensure a secure freight- and passenger transport on any heavy-load- and high-speed lines worldwide, based on process reliable plastic solutions that are manufactured and assembled at our certified plants.

Technology

Speed and axle load determine technology and material.

Our plants process virtually all common constructional thermoplastics which are suitable for superstructure thanks to their elastic and load-bearing properties. Depending on the speed and specification we select the most efficient and useful injection process, including assembly- and refinement service upon request:

  • Joint development with customers
  • Mold design and construction
  • Thermoplastic injection molding and refinement
  • Individually automated assembly solutions
  • Global logistics solutions, directly to railtracks upon request

Partnerships are so important for us.

Long-term partnerships with permanent contacts. We accompany our customers along the entire value chain, from the initial idea up to the after sales service and beyond.
