Front cabin Lightweight
The structurally relevant front cabin for rail vehicles is particularly characterized by the following features:
- Innovative lightweight design with ultra-large CFRP structures
- Reduced number of individual parts combined with a high level of functional integration
- Modern cab design with complete separation of cab and car body without a continuous underframe
- More than 30 percent reduction in weight compared to a metal design
A mock-up of the CFRP front cab can be seen in the permanent exhibition “Schienenverkehr” (Rail Transport) at the Dresden Transport Museum, as an exhibit showcasing the “Train of the Future”.
