Vossloh Cogifer is one of the worldwide leaders in points and crossings for all types of rail networks: very high-speed railways, heavy-haul railways, metros and tramways. Its know-how is available for solutions globally.
The expertise in the railway environment acquired by Vossloh Cogifer enables it to perfectly interface its products with all existing equipment and incorporate its products efficiently onto the track. Its experience accumulated in more than 80 countries, together with its industrial power, enables it to design and manufacture a range of products meeting all the technical and financial requirements of the market.
Vossloh customises its points and crossings to meet the requirements of each network. Its industrialised solutions provide the highest level of safety and comfort for passengers.
Vossloh has repeatedly proven its ability to rapidly install and commission preassembled and pre-tested points and crossings, for both light and heavy-duty local transport systems running on tyres or tracks. Vossloh also develops turnkey solutions for trams operating in the world's biggest cities, irrespective of rail profile or type of system.
Vossloh is a development pioneer and for many infrastructure operators a preferred supplier of high-speed points and crossings. The first units were supplied for France's South-East TGV as far back as 1980. Vossloh technology and, specifically, the cast manganese frogs with movable points (a Vossloh patent), when combined with the integrated inclined running table, allows trains to negotiate these switches at very high speeds.
Thanks to its ability to adapt its products and its extensive experience gained from all types of track, Vossloh can develop innovative solutions to very specific problems: heavy-duty track as used for the Ariane rocket at Kourouor or several mining projects in Australia; the Californian switch; special track for the Lyon metro; tracks for harbour trains, etc.
Vossloh designs, manufactures and installs safety-critical products such as signalling, remote maintenance and monitoring systems for all types of urban and mainline railways in all parts of the world.
