CG Rail GmbH – Range of services

Lightweight engineering reaches its full potential when conceived and implemented as a system.
This holistic approach informs everything we do. It is the guiding principle for our range of services.

Our portfolio includes:

  • Feasibility studies for lightweight system solutions
  • Conception of innovative lightweight systems
  • Design and simulation of lightweight systems with all
    common software systems
  • Development and validation of production processes
    for lightweight structures
  • Fabrication and testing of prototypes
  • Support in the design of high-stress connections (specialist engineers in adhesives and welding)
  • Characterization of metals and composite materials
  • Project management (IPMA-certified project managers)

We have developed specialist expertise in the following fields:

  • Pultrusion of thick-walled profiled structures consisting of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) with continuous fiber reinforcement appropriate for the flow of force (unidirectional and multi-directional)
  • Design of impact-loaded CFRP lightweight structures
    Simulation and testing with respect to stone impact and other collisions
    Up to 40% weight savings compared to metal design, simultaneously combined with improved impact behavior

We have developed specialist expertise in the following fields:

  • Longstanding experience in fire protection systems
    Development and testing of fiber-reinforced plastic composites based on
    DIN EN 45545.
    Fire protection levels achieved to date with structural CFRP materials:
    R1 HL3 and R7 HL3
  • Lightweight designs with optimized sound insulation
    Simulation and testing of multi-material composites in lightweight design to increase the sound insulation level in accordance with DIN EN ISO 10140-2
