Case Study | Magnetic Levitation Train
from Transport System Boegl
Fast-changeable glazing systems
used in the pioneering magnetic levitation system
from Transport System Boegl
With global urbanization currently ongoing, more than 5.6 billion people will live in cities and their peripheral areas by 2035. The result: local transport takes place in a small space and must function flexibly and reliably. In regard to frequency and capacity utilization, the existing bus and tram system is no longer sufficient in many places.
We need smart concepts for public transport that are almost silent and respond efficiently to the challenges of large cities and metropolitan area. Our partner Transport System Boegl (TSB) takes on these challenges and brings a means of transport to the market with its magnetic levitation railway system, which makes mobility flexible, quiet, low-emission, reliable and space-saving.
SEALABLE is proud to be a partner for the development and production of glazing systems as part of the pioneering project "Magnetic Levitation Railway".
The challenge in this project
The fast-changing glazing system from SEALABLE Solutions is just as efficient and flexible as the future-oriented vehicle itself. In current bus and tram systems, mostly glued glass frames have been used up to now. This type of installation is extremely time-consuming, as the adhesives used must completely cure and adhesive residue removed after installation. For a quick and flexible replacement of the windowpanes, the magnetic levitation tracks of Transport System Boegl were equipped with a fast-changing glazing system from SEALABLE. This ensures that there will be little to no downtime for the new vehicles.
Solution and benefits
Multi-part prefabricated frames made of high-quality elastomer allow a quick and easy replacement of the window system. The fulfilment of all safety requirements was made possible by the material competence as well as the constructive advice of SEALABLE.
- Permanent availability of vehicles due to short-term to no workshop stops
- No use of solvent-based adhesives
- Cost savings through an efficient system
- Lifecycle costs are minimized
- Lower workload as there is no adhesive seams
- Removal of the interior design is not necessary during replacements
We were very satisfied with the competent support and practical assistance of SEALABLE during the start phase for this exceptional project.
