Voestalpine Railway Systems
voestalpine Railway Systems
voestalpine Railway Systems is the global leader for system solutions in the field of railway infrastructure, offering outstanding products, logistics and services for rails, turnouts, signaling and monitoring applications. Creating maximum customer benefit is the driving force behind all activities of the group.
The basis for the innovative portfolio of voestalpine is the ongoing focus into research and development. An international network of companies and their access to customers is the basis for our know-how and ongoing product and process improvements. More than 60 production and sales facilities ensure maximum understanding and knowledge of local conditions and customer demands.
Advanced materials and geometries combined with state-of-the-art production systems guarantee the highest quality and performance of rails and turnouts. Fully integrated and tailored drive, locking and detection applications optimize the interface between track and signaling components. Intelligent monitoring and diagnostic equipment provide relevant data to improve maintenance activities and form the basis of modern asset management of both infrastructure and rolling stock.
Development activities focus on optimization of life cycle costs increasing “reliability, availability, maintainability and safety” of the asset at the same time. The life cycle strategy starts with surveying the place of installation, spans transport and installation support and includes service and maintenance as well as reclaiming and recycling of used products.
In addition, seminars and training courses are offered in cooperation with partners from industry, research and education institutions to build up and share essential know how to use the right products to their fullest potential.
All of this allows voestalpine Railway Systems to offer the most comprehensive and powerful product and service portfolio for railways available on the market.

The rail industry is complex. We don’t believe that tech innovators should be expected to understand & overcome the industry’s structure & varied processes to develop new products & solutions.
There is a pool of rail professionals & small companies who have successfully navigated the industry’s barriers to deliver past & future projects. With their experience, network & knowledge of how the rail industry works, we can help tech companies in their early steps into the industry.
There’s always a risk that people within in established industries start to think that ‘Innovation’ is being done to them not forthem. The role of organisations & communities such as The Rail Innovation Group is to build an understanding of how new tech can be an enabler to offer a better service & to bring the industry along the journey – that’s why we focus on bringing people together at our events: to facilitate knowledge sharing, network building & understanding.

Whether for railways, trams or trolleybuses – Kummler + Matter Ltd. is your professional partner for overhead contact lines.
We provide services that support your contact lines throughout their entire lifetime. From initial project studies, engineering, supply and delivery of materials and equipment through to installation, service and maintenance. Proximity to the market and customer retention are our priorities.
The product house of Kummler+Matter
It is not widely known that Kummler+Matter is also a product house. In our own product development, new railway products are developed and existing products are modified. Everything with and for our customers. The company relies on its good customer relationships for this and very often takes the customer on board for sustainable feedback. The result being marketable products at a very high level. For example, an earthing control system, a new multi-track cantilever, a modified de-icing system and the newly designed series of section insulators for railways (15+25 kV AC/3 kV DC) and trams (1.5/3 kV DC), which are known as KUSEC.
The KUSEC railway section insulators
Just a few months after the KUSEC product range was introduced to a large audience at the InnoTrans 2018 in Berlin, the KUSEC 25 kV and 15 kV were already being installed in Effingen (Zurich-Basel line), Mägenwil (Zurich-Bern line) and in Helsinki (on a main axis close to the station). Now they are being put to the acid test in operational trials. The first trial was held on a very busy SBB line in Lenzburg using a 25 kV section insulator that was tested over 11 months with a total of 75,000 crossings and then disassembled for inspection. The results speak for themselves. The evaluation of the field trials at Kummler+Matter demonstrated a significantly long, maintenance-free service life with minimal wear and tear. A very successful test result for Kummler+Matter.
