This year’s InnoTrans underscored its importance as the leading fair for transportation technology by setting new records: 2,950 exhibitors, almost two-thirds of them travelling from outside Germany, presented their products and services to an interested trade audience.

One of the attractions in Hall 26 was the new RAIL.ONE booth, which was adapted to reflect the company’s corporate design.

With the help of innovative presentation software and high-quality discussions with representatives of the global subsidiaries, a large number of visitors learned more about products and reference projects in the field of modern rail track systems.

One particular draw at the booth was the full-size model of a hinged turnout sleeper. Developed in partnership with Deutsche Bahn, this innovation allows pre-assembled switch elements to be transported on regular freight cars, thus eliminating the need for costly special shipments by rail. The company intends to have more new products to showcase when InnoTrans opens its doors once again in two years (from 18 to 21 September).
