For the Sprinter Lighttrain made by Bombardier, stainless steel sliding blocks were glued into the GRP profiles (A2 bonding) for high rigidity. Vertical tear resistance of 2,772 N was required for every single adhesive bond. This requirement was far surpassed in practice.
The roof panel, which has the appearance of a 3-dimensional component from a single cast, consists of pultruded GRP profiles and 3D moulded parts, partly combined with stainless steel components. 3D-printed components may also be used.
We have been continuously expanding our expertise in the field of adhesive technology for years. A number of European Adhesive Engineers (EAE, DVS-EWF 3309), European Adhesive Specialists (EAS, DVS-EWF 3301) and European Adhesive Bonders (EAB, DVS-EWF 3305) have been trained in the process.
When manufacturing pultruded profiles, the fire protection properties can be adapted to your requirements. We produce extremely high-quality surfaces that can then be painted for a textured or smooth finish. We machine the profiles with high precision using our modern 5-axis CNC machinery.
Every TC component is developed in accordance with the applicable requirements and standards. We conduct careful testing and documentation as a matter of course. Certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 confirms that our quality management is sound. We also hold IRIS certification in accordance with ISO/TS 22163:2017 for our customers in the rail vehicle sector.
