CAFAC makes your rail rubbers fire-resistant

21.10.2004


CAFAC-BAJOLET now offers a new service to help companies develop the use of rubber products across the whole of the railway industry, with the focus on fire-resistant product lines. The French company has been a specialist in the transformation of elastomers for transport industry manufacturers for 50 years. CAFAC showcased its know-how at the Innotrans trade fair in Berlin in September.



A high capacity for innovation makes CAFAC one of the leading fire-resistant rubber manufacturers in the market, particularly for rail applications. The rubber products serve as fireguards on train, by keeping flames from spreading from one compartment to the next. CAFAC represents an important link in the safety chain with obstacle detection or the use of sensors that make joints intelligent. The French specialist company is committed to providing the highest-value joint solutions in terms of investment and results.

CAFAC has all the traditional means of transforming rubber at its disposal. The company also has a sound engineering department with a proven track-record, which is the only way to effectively manage the diversity and complexity of the products manufactured. In addition to water-tightness and fire-proofing applications, CAFAC’s products can be used for bracing materials, motor connections, vibration filters, shock absorbers, braking applications, protection against harmful substances in the environment, deflection of electrical charges, and as pipelines to transport liquids.


"We have as many different applications as there are customers and their professions," explains Mr Samir Osmani, Technical Director. "The strength of CAFAC-BAJOLET’s products lies in the highly specialized knowledge of the company’s people," he points out, referring to the highly skilled staff working at CAFAC.

CAFAC has been a specialist in the transformation of elastomers for manufacturers of equipment used in the transportation of people, goods, loads, and energy since 1949. The French company numbers leading international groups among its clients, including French railway operator SNCF, Paris metro network operator RATP, Canadian-based BOMBARDIER, as well as engineering giants ALSTOM and SIEMENS, among others. CAFAC distributes standard products but also customizes its products to the client’s own specifications, when requested to do so.

CAFAC can claim that its rubber products are everywhere, and the specialist company’s selection of rubber products offers proven quality and top performance at highly competitive prices. Through the wide range of products that it manufactures, CAFAC plays an important role in the day-to-day life of ordinary people as well as across all industrial sectors.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
