Long-Length Wear-Resistant Rail targets worldwide demand.

October 28, 2013

Heat-treated, stress-free train track rails, available in lengths up to 108 m, help rail operators enhance performance and reduce expenses associated with worn rail replacement. During manufacture, rail moves through induction furnace that uses electromagnetic field to heat steel to 950°C. Rail is rapidly cooled using compressed air. Super-hardened rail withstands high-wear conditions, such as heavy traffic, high axle loads, and tight curves. Read More
