Alumino Thermic Welding and Railtech
Alumino Thermic welding involves obtaining steel from a mixture of aluminium and iron oxide and casting it at over 2000oC in a refractory mould that matches the rail profile. It gives exceptional results, enabling a smooth and continuous rail. Thermic welding is popular with many rail networks as the equipment for the task is easily transportable, there is no need for an external power source and the finished weld is expected to last the life of the rail.
As part of our welding service, we offer you the option of having our qualified weld inspectors visit the site and provide a report on the work carried out. The inspections are performed to Network Rail standards and form part of our commitment to supplying an efficient, high quality service.
Our teams are fully trained in all of the above forms of welding, and are happy to use the method that best suits your needs. For further details or to discuss a project, contact Inline Track Welding on 01622 854730.
Manual Metal Arc welding
Another popular welding process, Manual Metal Arc welding, uses an electrode from which an arc is drawn to the work piece. It is widely used due to its flexibility, particularly for repairs on switch and crossing components.
Conductor Rail welding
Inline Track Welding also carries out conductor rail welding for third rail renewal projects and maintenance.
