Euromag, a large and modern magnesium die casting foundry in Poland located in Kędzierzyn-Koźle is to launch a line producing components for the French TGV trains. The first part of the ultra-fast train to leave the factory in Poland is an elbow-rest. The company has also plans to manufacture other components.
A two-week test phase of the elbow-rest production is to be launched by Euromag in October. Tools and the cast are currently under preparation. Compin, a company in charge of interior design of TGV trains, says 20,000 of these components are needed in the first year.
TGV is not the first international contractor for the Polish foundry. Euromag is already cooperating with Delphi, a world leader in mobile electronics, transportation components, and systems technology and Makita – Japanese manufacturer of professional electric tools.
