Car Body Shells, Doors and Interiors

Project description

Building lighter, faster trains of the future

The next generation of passenger trains will be lighter and more cost and energy efficient. This requires the use of composite technologies, which face barriers for full implementation, such as their high cost. The modular design of interiors and low-cost manufacturing of vehicle parts will be just as important. The EU-funded CARBODIN project will manufacture car body shell parts and lighter doors and improve the interior design of passenger trains. It will also combine different production techniques, automation concepts, introduction of co-cured and co-bonded composite parts, and multi-material integrated joints and inserts. In addition, predictive maintenance will be reinforced by testing intelligent sensor nodes. CARBODIN will also facilitate the design of attractive train interiors by developing a configuration tool based on virtual reality.
