Stengel BB Track Series

过山车以其环形和令人眼花缭乱的扭曲,在游乐园和公共节日里具有极高的人气。 创新的 Stengel BB 履带钢元件之前在实现高速和承受极端负载的常见履带设计要求的背景之下,确实满足履带安全、材料和工艺方面的最高要求,但通常很少关注美学方面。 因此,该设计的目的是通过赋予一个新的形状和外观,进一步增加过山车的期待和刺激性。 这种用于过山车的钢轨受到累丝 (filigree) 设计语言和大轨道跨度灵感的激发。 获得专利的轨道基于使用薄金属板连接圆形空心型材的结构原理。 单个钣金部件的组装在结构上可视化了横向和纵向力的流动。 这一设计原则优化了钢材的使用,最大限度地减少材料的使用。 板料的独特形状为轨道提供了最大的安全性和非凡的使用寿命。 尽管采用相同的预制方式,但这些板材可以轻松适应任何弯曲的过山车轨道。 这大幅简化制造,具有显著的成本效益。 轨距和尺寸是可变的,以适应保持轨道原始设计的不同过山车类型。

With their loops and often dizzying twists, roller coasters are true crowd pullers in amusement parks and at public festivals. The innovative Stengel BB Track steel element was developed against the background that common track designs for achieving high speeds and withstanding extreme loads do meet the highest demands regarding safety, material and workmanship of the track, but often pay very little attention to the aesthetic side. Thus, the aim of this design was to further increase the anticipation and thrill of a roller coaster ride by lending it a new shape and appearance. This steel track for roller coasters inspires with its filigree design language and large track spans. The patented track is based on the structural principle of connecting circular hollow-section profiles using thin metal sheets. The assembly of the individual sheet metal components structurally visualises the flow of lateral and longitudinal forces. This design principle makes optimum use of the steel and thus minimises material usage. The distinctive shape of the sheets gives the track maximum safety and an exceptional lifetime. Despite being identically prefabricated, the sheets can be adapted easily to any curved roller coaster track. This allows for significantly simplified fabrication and thus outstanding cost effectiveness. The gauge and dimensioning are variable to fit different roller coaster types maintaining the track’s original design.
