The EST activities - crashworthy rail vehicles:

EST Eisenbahn-Systemtechnik GmbH is a company that specializes in crashworthy rail vehicles. EST consults with customers from the rail vehicle industry in the development of new vehicles.

Besides the area of crashworthiness (passive safety) EST has ample knowledge from long-term experience in static and dynamic structural mechanics, structural integrity, weld design, production cost optimization, design for error-tolerance and strategic development planning. On customer demand, EST can take over entire development tasks and execute them just as efficiently as competently.

For individual components that can fulfill technical requirements with clearly defined interfaces, EST develops ready-to-use components, which the manufacturers and the operators of rail vehicles can apply with ease. The EST Crash Buffer is a good example for such a component, which was invented by EST, developed for series production and approved by the Federal German railway approval authority Eisenbahn-Bundesamt (EBA). In 2006, EST was honoured with the Innovation Award of the State of Baden-Württemberg (Dr.-Rudolf-Eberle-Preis) for this Crash Buffer.
