Product of the Month: GFK Energy Absorption Elements

Saving Weight and Installation Space

At InnoTrans 2014, Voith presented a lateral energy absorber made from glass fiber reinforced plastic and aluminum (GFK) for the first time. The component weighs just one third of the conventional model made from steel.

The lightweight solution offers not only economic and ecological advantages, but also convinces in terms of size and required installation space. The fiber compound material disintegrates in the event of a crash and can therefore be easily diverted and moved under the vehicle, thus saving space.

Meeting Challenges Together
