We mainly use thermite welding on turnouts and track sections at the customer‘s request. With thermite welding, the intense heat generated by a chemical reaction of aluminum granulate and iron oxide produces molten steel, which allows the rail ends to be securely joined together.

Rail joints are the most susceptible part of a railway line. The technology, the equipment and the experts carrying out this work all need to be top quality. In addition to its factory services, Vossloh also provides solutions for track-side welding for every kind of line, track, region and customer requirement.
Easy Track Supply: Our experts and equipment ensure completely continuous track, which doesn‘t use fishplates but instead has welded connections along its entire length. Flash butt welding is the best and most advanced rail welding technology available and we employ it using our flash welding module vehicles or our mobile welding factory. We use thermite welding on turnouts and when fabricating transitions between different rail profiles. And we also carry out all kinds of build-up welding work.
