The success of this project can easily be explained: the high share of insourcing in our Linz factory, starting as early as in the development phase of the product. Our engineers intensively examined the comprehensive requirements and discussed a great number of differing technical solutions. Only the best solutions are implemented. An intensive phase of collaboration between the departments and suppliers responsible for the mechanical design, the work and drive technology and the cabin design takes a lot of time.
It may be hard to believe, but at Plasser & Theurer we manufacture the majority of the components in-house in the Linz Factory. In the welding shop, we produce the massive frame components. With high precision, our welding robots join the bogies. Later, bogies, wheelsets and suspensions are put together in the assembly plant. At the same time, we build the cabins while our software developers already work on the machine control system. In the final assembly plant in Pummererstraße in Linz, it all comes together.
There are components, however, we do not manufacture in-house. Yet, we set store by top quality. Therefore, we choose our suppliers carefully, opting for renowned manufacturers with long years of experience.
