voestalpine BWG – a competent engineering and service partner for planning, manufacture and operation
voestalpine BWG excels in a high potential of engineering and R&D capacity.
Our engineers worldwide work on
- Special customer requirements
- Challenges in the high speed, industry, heavy haul and MRT & LRT fields
- LCC (Life Cycle Costs) optimized turnouts and diamond crossings
The central engineering organization in the voestalpine VAE Group coordinates the flow of know-how within the Group and the locations.
We analyze the demands of our customers and recommend the best technical and economical solution. The combination of excellent human potential and extraordinary technical know-how makes it possible to find customer-oriented solutions within the shortest possible time.
Our turnout design is based on the consistent application of the laws of physics and geometry.
Curvature Design Preventing Jerks - Asymmetrically Clothoids
The clothoid as an element of curvature design ensures maximal travel comfort and minimal wear. For years now, every driver entering or departing highways is aware of this convenience. Uneven lateral acceleration and jerky motions as geometrically quantifiable parameters are minimized.
Kinematic Gauge Preventing Wear
FAKOP® as kinematic gauge optimization system for the transition area of set of switches and movable frogs is also a prerequisite for improving travel comfort, reducing wear and prolonging the service life of the product. On high-speed lines FAKOP® is already standard.
