In November 2018, Siemens secured a major contract for the refurbishment of one of the world’s oldest metro lines. The new metro trains are set to modernise travel for millions of passengers in one of Europe’s most popular metropolitan areas. In the production of the metro trains, Siemens uses one of the highest-performance friction stir welding systems from HAGE.
At HAGE, every project is a (new) challenge. That was certainly true of the HAGE machining centre for Josko. Markus Steinkellner (control technology) and Christian Feßl (assembly manager) were heavily involved in construction of the system and give us some first-hand insight into the project.
