Regarding rolling stock, the high mechanical and electrical characteristics of copper-aluminium are used in many places such as support for carbon contacts, pantograph or electrical contacts.
Copper-aluminium has proven an excellent resistor to vibration and shock with an outdoors life span of decades.
Copper Nickel Silicon is used where major mechanical resistance is needed while pure copper is used where the best conductivity is required.
Finally, our steel forgings are used for bogies, couplings, suspensions and transmission devices.
Lebronze alloys has been working in close collaboration with the railway industry since electrification of railways began, through the development of components for catenaries.
Today, the group continues to develop components that enables tomorrow’s demand to be met today.
Alstom, Bombardier, Cegelec, Colas Rail, Faiveley, SNCF, Siemens.
Lebronze alloys delivers to some of the most reputed companies globally. Our components/materials are produced with a specific focus for the special requirements the products may have (accuracy and reproducibility are key).
Being aware of the technological and economic challenges that the move towards an unleaded brass world represents, Lebronze alloys has developed various solutions to support its customers towards this goal. These solutions are environmentally responsible, durable and cost effective.
