Joptek Composites Composites for Train Interior and Exterior Surfaces
Joptek Composites designs and manufactures composites for the interior and exterior surfaces of trains. Lightweight composite construction improves speed, acceleration, braking and allows the interior to be utilized more efficiently. Joptek’s design and manufacturing utilizes these lightweight, sandwich constructions to create more functional and efficient products.
Composite passenger compartments, playrooms and equipment rooms
Joptek provides complete product ensembles for trains including sections of passenger compartments, playrooms and equipment rooms. Its composite materials are also beneficial in other parts of the train.
Composite toilet modules, floor systems and passenger compartments
Joptek provides three major products for trains: toilet modules, floor systems and passenger compartments. It manufactures its products according to the industry’s international standards and regulations set to the business.
Its intimate familiarity with the transport industry’s structural requirements, functional needs, and regulations complements its mastery of composite materials’ combinations and their related production technologies.
Composite material design and manufacture
As a company specialized in the design and manufacture of composites and lightweight construction products, Joptek knows how to take advantage of composites’ formability and structural properties. Its expertise can be seen in new and improved solutions for its customers’ products.
Train toilet modules
Toilet modules are state-of-the-art solutions that are delivered to a customer as a ready-to-install module. All necessary assembly work is completed in Joptek’s factory, including automation and electrics, sewage and water supply systems. These modules can be manufactured either from sandwich structures or composites.
Laminating these modules to a mould means different shapes can be designed for the module, without reducing functionality. If compared to traditional materials, composite allows more efficient use of space in very tight surroundings, because technical equipment has been inserted into the structure of the module.
Key benefits of choosing our module:
- Lightweight structure
- Long lifecycle
- Easy to maintain and clean
- Fulfills all the necessary requirements
Composite train-floor systems
Joptek’s state-of-the-art composite train floor system is designed to be more advanced than previous solutions. Some materials of previous versions have been replaced with composites, ensuring the product has a much longer lifecycle. The composites used are moisture and chemical-resistant, and easy to maintain.
The system’s key advantages include:
- The light weight of the whole system
- Long lifecycle
- Integration into the train body
- Can be equipped with heating system
- Able to be attached to different train parts, such as seats
- Prevents resonance and noise
Train passenger compartments
Joptek’s passenger compartments are also manufactured as finished, ready-to-install units. The compartments are designed by Joptek’s own engineers according to customers’ requirements.
Design and engineering is highly appreciated by our customers, as it eases their processes on manufacturing and delivery time. These compartments can be mounted to both new cars and converted ones. They are manufactured to isolate resonance and noise from the body of the train.
Train seat and bed compartments
Joptek has delivered both seat and bed compartments to major train manufacturers. All the products in this field are manufactured under tight standards, and therefore they conform to all international standards and regulations.
