MG-VALDUNES has originated technological advances like high-speed wheels, which began in the late 1970s on the French TGV® trains, the heavy-load wheels introduced in Mauritania and Northern Canada in the 1990s, and the railway speed record achieved in 2007.
MG-VALDUNES is continually innovating in order to provide clients with safe, effective, high-quality products.
R&D at MG-VALDUNES is centred on the:
- improvement of product performance;
- development of digital designing tools in order to ensure product safety and manage our projects' risks;
- the incorporating of constraints resulting from production processes and from choices of steel grades in product design.
MG-VALDUNES relies on the skills and lengthy experience of its technical teams, as well as on a network of engineering colleges, research centres, and laboratories that make it possible to carry out highly technical projects and studies.
MG-VALDUNES is supported by universities in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie region.
