The Challenges to be Answered by Industry

The rail industry is constantly challenged to develop innovative solutions to train weight, traction energy consumption, axle load, fire retardant interior design and of course to support the manufacture of ultra-light rail vehicles, bogies, people movers and trams.

Increasingly vehicles are propelled by new energy systems that can presently only achieve a relatively low speed, or lack the tractive effort of fossil fuel vehicles in a world that is increasingly environmentally conscious.  This provides a demand for new processes, new solutions and particularly, high strength low weight components.
