Defective rail joints can be found all over the world. Even in the United States, IRJs are often found to be the cause of malfunctions in the rail infrastructure. In line with our mission ‘connecting the world of rail’, we supported our sister company and distributor in the USA, voestalpine Railway Systems Nortrak with the sales opportunities for our Insulated Rail Joint Repair System. voestalpine Railway Systems Nortrak then offered New York Transit the solution, so that they can continue to work on a safer and reliable railway.
Our renewed coating production line is officially open for business! The world’s longest coated rails can now be produced in Hilversum, the Netherlands. Rail rolling lengths of 120 meters are coated and then connected by two flash butt welds of up to a maximum of 360 meters.
