Huge variety of products
The long-established company from Stuttgart only began supplying the European railway industry two years ago, but thanks to its customer-friendly concept has already won contracts with several manufacturers, including Talgo, Bombardier, Softronic, CMZO elektronika, EVPU and Matisa, a Swiss manufacturer of large track construction machines. The specialist railway product lines – ÖLFLEX® TRAIN, UNITRONIC® TRAIN and ETHERLINE® TRAIN – include more than 500 cable types, with accessories also available from the SILVYN®, SKINTOP® and FLEXIMARK® lines. All LAPP railway products satisfy the highest national and international standards and requirements, and represent uncompromising safety, quality and functionality.
Unrivalled delivery times
LAPP currently has around a million metres of cable for the railway industry in stock. Within Germany, customers receive their order within 24 hours, with a delivery time of just 72 hours to other European countries. Worldwide, delivery times of less than a week are the norm, several weeks faster than the standard delivery times offered by other cable producers. This represents a huge time saving for manufacturers of rail vehicles, but also for assemblers, who supply the cables ready for installation. This pays off if modifications are made to the electrical system shortly before delivery of a new vehicle model due to last-minute requests from the customer, which tends to be the rule rather than the exception. It also means that railway manufacturers and their assemblers no longer have to store large quantities of unused cables.
On Stand 210 in Hall 10.1 of the Berlin exhibition site, experts from different European countries will be on hand to provide information about LAPP’s range of products and services, and to explain the advantages of the LAPP logistics concept to anyone interested in finding out more.
