Research and DevelopmentConstant improvement in rail/wheel contact, increase in product life and reduced wear, plus minimised maintenance operations - these are the main aims of Vossloh Cogifer's R & D teams.
Complete laboratory tests
- artificial ageing;
- stiffness measurements;
- process validation (welding, bonding).
- throw effort;
- laser geometry readings (frog/cradle, interlock).
Modelling and simulation
- behaviour of components and sub-assemblies;
- finite element calculations for strategic components.
