Sadef has developed a multifunctional roof edge beam in collaboration with a leading French train maker. The profile section is the result of intensive co-engineering between Sadef and its customer. The profile replaces a welded assembly of different profiles that were welded together over a length of 18 m, a process that involved a large number of quality issues.
Replacing the different profiles with their specific functions by a single multifunctional beam enabled Sadef to offer a cost-saving solution. Moreover, the roof edge beams are neatly packaged in suitable steel containers tailored to the special transport requirements for long profiles.
