Research & Development
All research and development activities of voestalpine Nortrak are coordinated by our VAE parent company. This ensures that the knowledge and the resources within the world-wide group are best used. In the different traffic sectors (high speed, heavy haul, mixed traffic, metro, suburban traffic, tramways) we prepare solutions together with our customers, where the best conditions for a competent, fast and efficient realization are given.
New developments are systematically prepared for carefully planned prototype installations from the design phase to the testing phase. Documented studies of technical feasibility during the design and manufacturing stages as well as verification and validation are part of our decisive quality assurance activities.
Nortrak is a worldwide leader with acknowledged patents in turnouts, turnout components, electronic safety and monitoring systems as well as hydraulic drives.
