XBODY®

XBODY® is a family of structural lightweight applications created for rail and road vehicles. Once XBODY® is applied according to customer requirements, the design benefits from modular and structural components with the highest stiffness to weight ratio. XBODY® also functions as an ideal solution for developing body-in-white structures in rail and road vehicles.

Our solution relies on a qualified and well-established production process, which is verified  by the leading manufacturers and operators worldwide.

Overview

XBODY® sandwich parts – such as roofs, floors, side walls and chassis components – offer a high level of strength and durability, and have proven their reliability over many generations of vehicles.

XBODY®properties provide increased energy absorption in case of crash, ensuring improved overall vehicle performance.

Reduced Vehicle Manufacturing Process

XBODY’s® modular construction ensures a significant reduction in assembly time. It is possible to completely pre-assemble and handle the XBODY® parts due to their high stiffness and low weight. The components can be pre-painted to client specifications before final stages of production and assembly. Once an XBODY® roof is installed, no additional thermal cladding is required as part of the internal roofing system.

XBODY® for Rail
  • Rail products meet the structural body building and exterior covering demands. Trams and coach rail vehicles are made lighter and stiffer (in accordance with ISO EN 12663)
  • Our composite designs meet EU and country-specific legally-required fire standards and are designed for the complete product life-cycle.
  • Modular design allows quick integration and changes with a shortened engineering time
  • XBODY® rail exterior products as roof and claddings can also be delivered with a coil-coating or pre-painted finish on the exterior and visible interior surfaces, according to rail application demands
XBODY®  for Road
  • Sustainable sandwich solutions allowing modular production.
  • Capable of replacing and improving the stiffness of conventional body-in-white designs with a significant weight reduction.
  • Engineered to bear heavy loads without additional reinforcements.
  • Excellent crash behavior, easy to repair and replace.
  • Low investments, just-in-time deliveries, latest joining technologies, CNC machined.
  • Easy pre-assembly and handling through enhanced stiffness and low weight.
  • Tested in adherence with legislated EU ECE bus and rail safety regulations and structural integrity standards.
  • Smart integrations like heating solar and electrical wiring.
XBODY® E-Mobility

In order to keep up with the rapidly growing demands of future mobility, both vehicle manufacturers and operators need to address low CO² emissions and fuel consumption, long service life and robustness, along with service and quality.

XBODY® components have been developed into systems creating the opportunity for new logistics and assembly concepts for modern bus manufacturing and development worldwide. For city buses, coaches and double-decker buses, XBODY® features a validated and tested design with a system allowing easy integration.

XBODY® offers a lightweight alternative to solutions currently available in the transport industry. Designable to any vehicle’s construction type, XBODY® presents a body-in-white structural component.

XBODY’s® lightweight nature translates into higher passenger numbers, more payload, and more spacious cabins. An overall lower vehicle mass also contributes to increased longevity and durability of the structure as a whole – preserving vehicle tracks, wheels, axles and brakes.

 

The Sandwich Solution

With minimized service costs, excellent insulating properties for temperature, noise and vibration – all resulting in greater overall cabin comfort – both rail and bus operators benefit from XBODY®.

 

Low Environmental Impact

A significant reduction in weight, along with increased life-cycle conditions and long-term service, result in a remarkable reduction of CO² emissions and fuel consumption. Off-duty service time is minimized due to an efficient “cold” repair system. Coil-coating and anti-graffiti coating finish options are also available.
