ALUMINUM COACH BODIES OF FULLY INTEGRAL CONSTRUCTION FOR SUBURBAN RAILWAYS

S-BAHN-WAGENKAESTEN AUS ALUMINIUM IN VOLL-INTEGRAL-BAUWEISE

In this article the design and manufacture of an all-welded coach-body shell for the newly developed prototypes for the Rhein-Ruhr suburban railway are described. By the use of modern manufacturing process, through the choice of fully integral construction using very large extrusions, the most economical solution to date for the construction of aluminum railway vehicles has been increased somewhat in comparison to the differential-integral mixed construction used so far, it was possible in this way to considerably reduce the production costs, and specified minimum strength values were exceeded.
