EN 15085 - welding for railway applications

Our employees demonstrate their outstanding competences in their daily work and now they received a special award. The excellent quality of welding for cooling and catering equipment of IDEAL is officially confirmed by TÜV Austria Service GmbH.


The certificate for welding of railway vehicles and components confirms the high precision of our welding constructions. To ensure a consistent quality, which is most important for the whole management board of IDEAL AKE, we focus on the following factors.

  • Our employees are well educated, certified welders (according to EN 287), who are because of numerous trainings on the latest state-of-the-art.
  • In our production process we have experiences in latest welding procedures e.g. we have two welding robotics of the latest generation. All procedures are defined, documented and monitored.
  • Quality control is carried out in three steps: our welding coordinator controls the construction before the welding procedure. During welding every certified welder checks his own work according to defined and validated procedures. After the welding a certified visual inspector (according to EN 473) observes the results.
  • Quality management is an important aspect: continuous improvement takes place according to defined procedures that show improvement potentials and ensure that measures are taken and monitored.

Meantime we expanded our product lines far across from welding for cooling and catering equipment towards equipment for new, high sensitive areas like power plant construction.

The taken way is now again confirmed by the certification and we know we are well prepared for the future.
