High speed trains
There are many different high speed trains in Europe. The high speed (>200 km per hour) is achieved by the smooth organic lines of the trains' design and the use of light-weight aluminium in the body structure.
Kersten manufactures curved aluminium components for rail transporation. These components are used for the doors, side walls and the nose of the train. The crash-part of the train is also bent by Kersten. This crash-part is an aluminium profile which catches the hit in emergency situations to reduce the damage.
Besides bending, Kersten offers additional services such as cutting, welding, drilling, milling, heat and surface treatments.
