New project confirms MCG as expert on structures for HVAC systems for trains

After validation of a prototype unit by the customer in December, the development of a new structure for HVAC systems for trains reinforces MCG transportation as a specialist in welding processes with EN 15085 certification. And demonstrates the ability to adapt and reduce the response time of the division of MCG…

…that is dedicated to the production of interiors for trains and buses.


The project involves the production of a new housing for an HVAC system for the manufacturer Merak and intended for installation on the platforms of FLIRT trains produced by Stadler Rail.


From the production point of view, this is a project…

…of great demand in new processes and equipment, which MCG transportation responds with the optimization of the layout of the assembly lines. Special features of the structure – such as the total dimension of more than three meters, for example – also motivate the investment in new tools. The complexity of…

…the assembly processes is another challenge.


For the realization of this project, the main strengths of this business unit of the company are very important:

  • The capacity of management of projects with this dimension, in the total extension of the value chain;
  • The ability to reformulate the process design, integrating this type…

…of product into a production line concept;

  • The ability to invest in employee training, ensuring a robust process and a very high-quality level;
  • The proximity to the customer and the speed of response and proactivity in the integration of the requirements.

    All this makes MCG transportation take over as a strong and…

    …experienced player in this market, perfectly qualified for the development of large projects.

    NewGenShell – R&D project kick-off at MCG mind for metal

    As part of the activities and competencies of the MCG mind for metal R&D team, the NewGenShell project (New Generation of High Performance Shells for Climatic Chambers) project is now starting at the company’s facilities in Carregado and in partnership with Aralab and ITeCons, the other two companies that make up…

    …the consortium.


    The main goal of the project is researching, designing, developing, prototyping and validating a new concept of climate boxes (with isothermal enclosures) with integrated climate control modules – the NewGenShell – New Generation of High Performance Shells for Climatic Chambers.


    This modular system will originate large test chambers – where a complete…

    …automobile can fit, for example –, capable of generating extreme temperature conditions (-75ºC to 180ºC), relative humidity (10% to 98%) and variable ventilation.


    The NewGenShell project responds to challenges posed by the automotive, aeronautics, electronics, biotechnology and refrigeration/cryogenic industries, areas that currently look for systems with these characteristics.

    MCG mind for metal’s main responsibility in this project is the development of the structural solution – a multilayer sandwich panel –…

    …as well as its mechanical and hydrothermal sizing. The other contribution of the company also goes through the development of the process of continuous automatic stainless-steel welding (internal welding).


    The other two companies present in the consortium are Aralab, a manufacturer of climatic and laboratory equipment for the…

    …biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and industrial markets; and ITeCons, the NE entity of the SI & I dedicated to the design, development, and validation of new products and technological systems.
