Rail flaws and joint gaps reduce ride comfort, damage rail vehicles and have a negative effect on the track system. Normally they can only be remedied on the line. The same applies for rail welding – and here, too, mobile methods of work are necessary.
Plasser & Theurer offers a wide range of machines for the removal of rail flaws. Planing and grinding machines guarantee an effective and cost-efficient correction of faults in the longitudinal and lateral rail profile. Beyond that, the mobile welding machines of the APT series brought the well-proven process of electric flash-butt welding to the track, and it has been perfected over the past years.
