High Performance Milling doesn’t use water and produces neither sparks nor dust. The metal chips removed are extracted during the milling process and deposited in chip bunkers for later disposal. These bunkers have capacities of several tons, which is sufficient for several work shifts. Not only does this render unnecessary the cleaning of tunnel walls after a milling run, for example, it also makes Vossloh’s HPM the safest and most environmentally-friendly rail milling machine in the world.
HPM Milling machine
Exact. Clean. Efficient.Simple reprofiling of badly damaged rails
The highest performance thanks to the most advanced technology on both freight and mainline passenger railway systems: Vossloh’s High Performance Milling is the groundbreaking solution for repairing damaged rails and significantly prolonging their service life. HPM is effective at removing severe defects in the cross-sectional and longitudinal profiles of the rail head as well as deformations and damage caused by material fatigue. The rail receives an exact reprofiling and finish in only a single pass, and the innovative face-milling technology for the finishing produces neither dust nor sparks. Combined with its efficient extraction system, HPM milling is practically emission-free.
