A Modern Cabin Solution for Train Manufacturers and Operators
Powerful, durable, thoroughly tested and approved for safety. INNOCAB is considered a trendsetter when it comes to future solutions in transport manufacturing, all the while using cost-effective materials. The efficient use of composites in the mobility sector is rapidly growing. Composite modules are increasingly being used to strengthen the structure of buses, trains, tramways, planes and boats. INNOCAB offers all the benefits of traditional materials with additional perks that are enabled by composite technology, helping to create a successful train concept. INNOCAB products are already installed, trusted, and relied upon by many leading train manufacturers.

Based on the customer order, INNOCAB is manufactured with the use of three distinctive production technologies: Hand lamination – used for smaller series; Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion (VAC) – used for common and intercity trains; or Vacuum Infusion Process – typically employed for modern high-speed solution designs. All technologies offer superior product properties and high surface quality.
Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion (VAC)
- Technology competent from CAD design and engineering to ready-to-install modules
- Great for producing high-quality, large scale structural elements
- Construction based on hard foam or balsa cores covered with fibre-reinforced resins and gel-coated skins
- Process incorporates core bonding for quicker element manufacturing
- Product offers increased stiffness and durability levels comparing to common composite production technologies (hand or spray infused)
- Inserts for quick interior element installation can be added to the production process
- Cabins are available in a combination of options: choose from unfinished, primed, coated finish, partly assembled, or ready for assembly
Vacuum Infusion Process
- Cost-effective process yielding high quality, ultra-lightweight, and durable composite parts
- Helpful for creating composites with higher fibre content, yielding improved overall product properties
- Produced by highly experienced and qualified personnel, guaranteeing product quality and adherence to top industry standards
- Cabin fronts (including interior) can be completed with a choice of coated finish
Water or solvent based painting
- Large-sized front ends coated in top modern painting infrastructure with humidity and temperature control system
- Tested on a wide range of coating systems
- Multicolor surface option available
- Full range of tests according to specifications
- High-class surface quality (internal and external)
Strong, Durable, Impact-Resistant (Speeds up to 600 km/h)
INNOCAB’s offers weight reduction and increased strength, made possible by a combination of carefully selected materials. The module’s fibre-reinforced plastic, combined with high quality hard foam, ensure noise reduction and heat insulation, while meeting all required fire protection standards.
Less Is More
INNOCAB provides a lightweight solution that improves overall performance. Efficient part consolidation ensures less parts are required per unit.
A Low-Maintenance, Cost-Effective, and Time-Saving Solution
INNOCAB modular system significantly reduces unit assembly time.
Existing cabin construction upgrades or entirely new cabin concept installations are made easy and require little tooling investment. INNOCAB modules are low-maintenance and require minimal lifecycle investment.
In the case of element damage, the unit’s sandwich technology also allows for train manufacturers and operators to directly apply proven, authorized panel repair systems. Smaller damages can be fixed at local workshops, while structural damages can typically be brought in for repair by qualified personnel at designated service centres.
