The frames of the vehicle is the platform that rests by means of the springs on the axles and supports the case.
Before it was made of wood, or in a mixed wood and iron structure; now it is completely produced in iron, steel or light alloy.
In this way, greater strength is achieved, without greatly increasing the weight and cost of the vehicle.
The suspension, traction and repulsion members and the braking members are connected to the frame.
The rectangular shaped frame is made up of two sides or side members, two crossbars or head cross members and intermediate crossbars. Diagonal beams of S. Andrea cross make the structure undeformable.
CIM produces high-performance frames of excellent technical quality, thanks to its passion for the railway sector and its highly qualified staff.
Over the last few years the company, while remaining faithful to the tradition of manufacturing handcrafted frames, has been able to renew itself and get back into play, adapting the product and the production process to the new market trends.
