Another SolidskinTec application. This time it’s running on the rail! The above picture is from a Bombardier locomotive with flex panels HSL Benelux.
Why choose the SolidskinTec printing process?
The exposure of materials on trains requires extreme robustness. Besides the challenging conditions the textiles are exposed to, such as rain, wind, and UV radiation, they must also withstand the copper deposit created by the grinding of the current train collector against the overhead contact line. Very aggressive cleaning methods are needed to remove this deposit from the materials. Our printing technology is dirt resistant and does not break in this challenging cleaning regime.
