The Narrow Head Flash Butt Welder is tall and narrow, requiring only 8.5 inches of clearance from the adjacent rail or fixed object. This allows for completing a flash butt weld inside of a turnout in transit areas, where flash butt welds were impossible in the past and even thermite welds were difficult.Learn More
