Research & Development

voestalpine VAE is specialized in highly innovative products and invests increasingly in research and development. Continuous developments of products and processes are based on our international know-how network.

All research and development activities of the voestalpine VAE Group are coordinated by the technical director of the voestalpine VAE parent company. This ensures that the knowledge and the resources within the 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 the decisive quality assurance activities.

voestalpine VAE is a worldwide leader in acknowledged patents in turnouts, turnout components, electronic safety and monitoring systems as well as hydraulic drives.
