Passengers usually consider railway as mobility with enough time for relaxing or working, especially for long-distance travel. However, the revolution today is the long-distance travel in a short time. Producing trains for long distance travel within the shortest time with the highest safety is always the challenge of railway industry. Especially the next maglev generation, the hyperloop, which travels “under vacuum”. This means, the trains will travel with airplane’s speed due to a combination of magnets placed on the outside of the train and on the walls of the tunnel. The challenge is to continuously increase the transportation speed in full safety with very complex technologies and to extremely shorten return of investment time.
We support our customers in designing trains, which match with the infrastructure (e.g. using all available space, matching with platform height or length, matching with safety equipment and matching with depot equipment). Besides that, the trains reach diverging requirements in different countries for different customers (e.g. national standards or specific service requirements). Early integrating the IPS product portfolio into the product development process allows to make quick and cost-effective modifications and optimizations.
