Euskalforging has taken part in the innovative Hyperloop train project

euskalforging  has supplied the flanges for the first tubes designed to move both people and freight at the highest speed recorded until now, within the Hyperloop system. Considered as the train of the future, it is estimated that the top speed could reach 1080 km/h. Passengers or cargo are loaded into the Hyperloop vehicle and accelerate gradually via electric propulsion through a low-pressure tube. The first tests will be held in Toulouse, France during 2018 and 2019.

Under the terms of the contract, euskalforging has rolled, heat treated, machined and delivered to the customer 54 seamless rolled rings with an outer diameter of ∅4400 mm.
