Grinding Technology

Grinding railroad tracks and switches is carried using our own grinding system, which has all the necessary approval from Deutsche Bahn.


Our system offers our customers an individually tailored grinding concept for each unique project. Grinding is characterised by a high degree of speed and flexibility. We invest a lot of time into calculations, planning, and technical research in order to be able to offer appealing concepts when it comes to both price and technology. Additional track and switch reconditioning can be carried out using welding techniques if necessary. Switch components that are out of reach for mechanical systems (e.g. frogs, tongues) are ground manually.

Grinding railroad tracks is a track-maintenance process where areas that are faulty or have been damaged by wear can be restored. Grinding is intended to prevent premature track or switch replacement because of untreated wear and tear.

In addition, preventive measures are becoming increasingly important. Preventive maintenance through regular grinding has become an essential part of our rail treatment approach. The service life of your tracks and switches will be extended and these preventative measures of course pay off.

What we can do for you:

  • New layer grinding on up to 100m of track
  • New layer switch grinding
  • Eliminating rail defects


In concrete terms, this means:

  • Processing frogs based on their profile
  • Grinding switch blades both adjacent and detached
  • Processing expansion joints
  • Processing head-check damages
  • Grinding and deburring work
  • Corrugation grinding
  • Grinding WITEC tongues
