New Lightweight Antenna

Shift2Rail presents a new antenna, made of composite materials, which is substantially lighter than the conventional welded design made of steel. The new Composite Antenna has a weight of about 13kg  –  more than 45kg lighter than the conventional welded design made of steel. By using composite components instead of conventional steel parts, railway vehicles have a higher payload and a lower energy consumption. Composite material is a proven lightweight material suitable for many applications…

Re-inventing the Wheel

Wheel maintenance accounts for a significant share of the maintenance costs of railway vehicles. Thus, engineers strive to design wheels that are ever more robust and better performing. Shift2Rail-funded research has developed a new wheel made of Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI), which diminishes the tendency for polygonisation and reduces wheel and rail wear, noise emission and wheel mass. ADI is a cast material characterized by a favorable combination of strength and ductility and high wear…
