Longitudinal floor bearers made of duplex steel for low floor trams
Rollgeformte und gebogene Profile aus Stahl, Edelstahl, Nichteisenmetallen (Alu, Kupfer, Messing…) in der Transport-Branche

Duplex steel profiles with optimum dimensional accuracy …

… included in low floor trams in the form of longitudinal floor bearers

Welser profiles accompany us from the early morning until late in the night, either close to us or abroad - and now also from Lystrup to Aarhus.

For all those who do not know Denmark: Aarhus is the second biggest city in Denmark and Lystrup is about 10 km away. These two cities are connected to each other via railway system, where “Tango”, the low floor tram with longitudinal bearers made by Welser Profile has been put in operation some time ago.

This low floor tram disposes of longitudinal bearers made of duplex steel produced by Welser.

Passengers cannot see our profiles as they are mounted on the right and left side of the bottom chassis of the tram. The profiles made of stainless steel are welded together to reach the required length of 6.5 metres. They are multifunctional: punching holes and notches ensure proper drainage and they also serve for mounting add-on components.

A low suspension of the profiles is crucial for our customer and this is reached by tightly mounting them to the base plate and the end cross bearer. The technological innovation of this project consisted in additional laser welding in order to increase durability of the welding seam. This is how our profiles contribute to the high level of comfort of this urban transportation system.
