Mobile welding plant
Many construction sites can be supplied faster, simpler and cheaper: standard length rails from the rolling mills are flash-welded into long rails in the immediate proximity of the work site. This combines logistical advantages with the quality of a stationary welding plant.
Some mobile welding plant scenarios
1 Short rail storage
Rails of up to 120 m in length are delivered on rail cars.
2 Welding unit
Here, the rails are prepared for welding and then a transport crawler positions them exactly to be welded in the welding module.
3 Final machining of the welds
This is where the welds are ground and aligned. The rails produced can be up to 400 m long.
