Rapid Museum

Experience around 90 years of successful history

The Rapid Museum is in Schöftland, Switzerland. Around 80 Rapid motor mowers from the very beginnings in 1926 to today are exhibited in the "Lüscher-Schüür", which has been specially converted for this purpose. The historical exhibits, which have been lovingly restored and beautifully presented under the direction of Charles Lüscher, are a popular destination for an exciting excursion!

E-Truck with Rapid cool cover

We congratulate our longtime partner Designwerk for the national Prix Watt d'Or! We are also very pleased about their success because of the battery cool covers we produce which are installed in the E-Trucks. The installed cool covers are manufactured with friction stir welding (FSW). Friction stir welding not only allows the welding of aluminium alloys, but also the joining of mixed joints such as aluminium/copper, aluminium/brass, copper/brass etc.  A rotating tool is immersed under pressure into the components to be welded and joins them together without additives. The connection is not made by melting, but by stirring the plasticized materials.
