RAIL WELDING

Our fixed plant and mobile welding units feature a robust design and modern control systems for unmatched productivity. With the most advanced process controls available – from computerized systems to touch-screen interfaces and detailed self-diagnostics – our welders are designed to be user-friendly. The units can also be equipped with modems, allowing our technicians to troubleshoot and complete software updates without the need for a field visit.

Supplementing our welding units is our fleet of continuously welded rail trains, rail unloading and specialized welding support equipment. We also offer a full range of mobile and stationary plant options, including containerized welding systems for stationary welding, and mobile welders mounted to rough terrain excavators, for extended-reach welding on or off track. In addition, a full range of AC-powered weld heads are available for welding pre-installation rails or performing your track distressing projects.

Working with our international affiliate EO Paton, we have developed a narrow head welder for our mobile units, which can be used with our extended boom trucks when welding turnouts in tight spaces. Our 250-ton AC mobile welders have external pullers for closure welds, expanding our mobile offering of 180-ton fully integrated heads, extended boom units and excavator mounted welders.
