Rail systems solutions

Constellium’s cost-effective and lightweight railcar solutions for combining and joining different types of material provide railcar manufacturers with significant competitive advantages. Based on the own Large Extrusion Technology, we have an impressive range of approximately 5,000 different structural extrusions and more than 45,000 vehicles built worldwide.

Hybrid vehicle solutions

Hybrid design solutions

Our self-supporting structure consists of a welded aluminium under-frame, sills, posts, carlines, and glassfiber reinforced polymer sidewall panels containing key interior components such as bonded windows and claddings. The structure’s sandwich roof is equipped with handrails, lighting, ventilation and air ducts.

The structure offers a multitude of benefits, including:

  •  
    reduced manufacturing hours,
  •  

    Ready-to-mount composite roof

    lower costs for jigs and fixtures,
  •  
    lightweight properties,
  •  
    integrated components with many additional functions,
  •  
    reduced number of components.

C-rail fixation solutions

Our C-rail system combines a number of different standardized elements such as toggles, insulation nuts and special coated bolts.

Customer advantages include:

  •  
    proven system elements,
  •  
    rapid and simple mounting,
  •  
    direct-load introduction for fixing components and equipment,
  •  
    corrosion-resistant connection between aluminium and steel,
  •  
    thermic and acoustic insulation,
  •  
    our engineering services for the dimensioning of profiles, integration of C-rail elements and arrangement of the fixation elements.

Resilient mount solutions

Resilient mount solutions

Our resilient mounts facilitate the fixing of lightweight interior equipment and floor panels. The number and arrangement of resilient mounts are specified according to the needs of the customer and the dimensions of the complete interior floor. System benefits include:

  •  
    proven system elements verified by finite element analysis and testing,
  •  
    rapid and simple mounting,
  •  
    direct-load introduction for fixing seats and components,
  •  
    thermic and acoustic insulation.
