France’s railways roll out web portal for business and innovation

Rail and Urban transport

A new English-language web portal (www.French-rail-industry.com) has been launched to promote France’s railways. The launch of the portal, which went live on 21 March 2014, coincided with the signing of a partnership agreement between UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, and Fer de France, the Inter-professional Association for France’s railway industry.   The web portal, which has been launched (in English) and is accessible at www.French-rail-industry.com, aims to meet a twofold objective. In the first instance, it will help to raise awareness among industry professionals worldwide of the know-how prevalent in France’s railway sector — a widely acknowledged and greatly praised centre of excellence.   The website will promote the entire sector with sections devoted to the latest international company news. It will also list a number of exciting achievements by French-based companies outside France, as well as the year’s most important events. The events section will include information about international trade shows where France has a substantial presence, such as INNOTRANS, which will take place in Berlin (Germany) from 23 to 26 September 2014.   In the second instance, the website will help to establish connections between international buyers and French suppliers. The web portal will showcase French players in the railway sector, making it easy for potential customers based outside France to browse the profiles of any French company they choose and contact them directly through a messaging interface integrated into the website.   The French suppliers featured on the platform are broken down into eight main categories: embedded electronic systems; mechanical components fitted on rolling stock; passenger-information and ticketing systems; passenger public transport; rail-car layout; railway infrastructure; railway testing and engineering; and, finally, rolling stock.   Thanks to the expertise, technological skills and innovative ability of its companies, France’s railway industry enjoys international recognition: the country is ranked third worldwide in the sector. Within Europe, the French railway industry is ranked second only to Germany, with 1,500 companies generating over €4 billion, equating to 25% of the country’s exports in value.   About Fer de France Founded in the wake of the 2012 consultation process (Assises du ferroviaire) centred on the French-railways sector, Fer de France is the French rail industry’s Inter-professional Association. Fer de France brings together the chairpersons and CEOs of all the companies involved in the industry. Its role is twofold: to work on improving the nation’s railway system and performance, on the one hand, and to facilitate co-operation among French sector players so as to help them expand into export markets, on the other.   For further information, please go to: www.French-rail-industry.com   About UBIFRANCE UBIFRANCE is the French export-support agency. As the partner of reference for French-based companies wishing to export, UBIFRANCE offers a complete range of services based on the provision of information on export markets, on legal issues and regulations, as well as on international finance and tenders, while also supplying sectorial data.   In addition, UBIFRANCE offers export advice and targeted support to companies’ commercial activities, such as exploratory visits, partnership meetings, foreign exhibitions and international press communication.   Finally, UBIFRANCE runs the International Postgraduate Programme (VIE) for employing qualified personnel and young graduates outside France.

SMTC’s Dynatech® solution lightens the mood at Aircraft Interiors 2014

SMTC, a specialist in the design and manufacturing of composite sandwich panels, has unveiled Dynatech ®, a highly innovative weight-reducing system for aircraft and high-speed-train interiors. The company will be showcasing the full range of Dynatech® products at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2014, which is taking place in Hamburg (Germany) from 8 to 10 April. Christophe Jenny, CEO of SMTC, says: “With Dynatech®, a truly revolutionary technology, we proactively made a major investment in mass production with high repeatability, in order to better serve our customers’ needs regarding significant weight savings, better mechanical properties, lower total system costs, and recyclability. We see ourselves as a carrier for solutions that fulfil the needs of society and, thus, are happy to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emission, to the performance of mass transport, and to the comfort and accessibility of passengers.” SMTC will be showcasing its Dynatech® technology at Aircraft Interiors E xpo 2014, to be held in Hamburg (in northern Germany) from 8 to 10 April of this year. The company will be exhibiting on the French Pavilion, in Hall B6 of the trade fair. Dynatech® products have been developed specifically for use in light-weight and high-performance applications such as damage tolerance as well as superior fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) values. Due to the thermoplastic nature of the Dynatech® solution as a ready-to-be-formed sandwich system, Dynatech® parts can be mass-produced, within the manufacturing process of various complex-shaped parts in the interior of aircraft and trains, including doors, luggage racks, seats, side-walls, trolleys, tables, etc. Based on the use of polyetherimide (PEI) in situ foam panels, Dynatech® technology also offers better thermic and acoustic isolation, as compared to traditional honeycomb designs based on thermoset panels: ultimately, this also contributes to the comfort of the traveller. “The Dynatech® revolution is down to an entirely new way of making sandwich panels based on full thermoplastic PEI material. These panels can also be formed into a variety of shapes, with different edging options,” explains Christophe Jenny. SMTC, which formerly focused on producing aluminium-based honeycomb systems, acquired the Dynatech® solution from inventor and patent-holder FITS Technology. SMTC is now developing and investing in the technology with a view to providing a completely new thermoplastic mass-market solution. Martin de Groot, CEO of FITS Technology and inventor of the process, explains: “My goal was to achieve maximum weight reduction to improve the ecological footprint of aircraft. In comparison with traditional sandwich systems, Dynatech® is much less labour-intensive thanks to its automated processing. Dynatech® now allows for extremely short-cycle times of only a few minutes for the pressing process. It also outperforms traditional material by offering a maximum manufacturing time of 30 seconds per edge.” In the steadily growing aircraft and high-speed-train end-markets, safety, weight and space-saving become more stringent, with a growing demand for enhanced performance. Dynatech® allows aircraft and train builders to use thinner layers of sandwich material, therefore creating more space for travellers. Its unique heat-resistance properties make Dynatech® a highly desirable and long-lasting material to be used for interiors. Furthermore, Dynatech’s® unique automa ted production guarantees higher quality standards and better control possibilities, which is greatly appreciated by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Due to SMTC’s patented closed-box procedure, this system allows for the sophisticated design of the edge close-out, which actually becomes the strongest part of the unit. Dynatech® can, therefore, provide a total system-cost reduction of between 20% and 30%, as well as weight reduction of between 20% and 40%. The production of a range of pilot Dynatech® products has already started: tests are being run and the first customers have received their prototypes. Full commercial production of the Dynatech® range is expected to be rolled out in 2016. About SMTC   SMTC is a French-based company with over 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacturing of composite sandwich panels. With this expertise and innovation at the heart of its strategy, SMTC contributes to the performance of mass transportation by producing light-weight solutions for the interior parts of trains, aircraft and cruise ships. SMTC will be showcasing its Dynatech® products at Aircraft Interiors Expo 2014, to be held in Hamburg (Germany) from 8 to 10 April of this year.
