More than Just a Complete Solution.
Scharfenberg Front End Systems. Ahead in Safety.
More and more rail vehicle manufacturers are demanding complete solutions in the development of front end systems. The advantages of these systems are functionality, handling and energy absorption. In this way, we satisfy the desire for modularization and standardization of functions and interfaces.
Our Scharfenberg front end systems have been adapted perfectly to meet the requirements of both aerodynamics and vehicle appearance. We develop and test the front end systems individually for each customer and speed. In this way, shock absorbing features, retractable andautomatic couplinger, nose flaps and the associated operating gear can be combined. Minor impacts are cushioned without permanent deformation by the use of suitable materials and shaping. All modules are functional, are easily manageable and simple to maintain. They are lightweight and can be replaced very quickly. This is extremely important following accident damage, for example. Out-of-service times are significantly reduced. Assembly and repair costs are lowered. So that you travel ahead in safety with our Scharfenberg front end systems.
