Grinding Technology

We use rail grinding machines to optimise the quality of new tracks.

The oscillating wet grinding process removes both the decarburised layer and the surface indentations caused by construction site traffic. It can also be used to specifically treat rail surface defects, as well as for maintenance grinding work to remove corrugations.

Our U400L grinding unimog that comes with a mounted sanding unit is mainly used for maintaining shunting tracks. The lateral ridge is removed to extend the service life. Due to the grinding process used, drag shoes can be used immediately after the grinding work. 

What we can do for you:

  • Oscillating grinding for new rails
  • Corrugation grinding
  • Deburring of rails
