In tailor-made production, our customers are able to harness the tremendous advantages our company offers. We provide service and expertise on cost optimisation, engineering and for special requests.
We also manufacture components that require a tailor-made solution using machinery and equipment from our own mechanical engineering facility. Additionally, we can develop and build the required testing equipment, complying with the strictest quality standards.
Rail parts and components
Maximum safety is our utmost priority in passenger and goods transport. Thanks to our high standards of quality and our reliability, we have been supplying the rail industry with various assembly components for many years. One key advantage in this, of course, is also our engineering experts.
We offer C-rails, systems, technical rail components, T-slot bolts (standardised), T-slot sliding nuts (standardised), laser-cut parts and customised parts, for use in the railway industry.
These parts are used in:
- Underfloor technology such as universal mounts (see also standardised components)
- Interior fittings such as supports, seats, assemblies and fairing mounts
