RAILWAY AGE, JUNE 2023 ISSUE: Measuring and monitoring track geometry and detecting flaws beneath the track surface not only allows railroads to take action before failures occur, but also helps them to manage maintenance proactively, prolonging asset life.
RAILWAY AGE, MAY 2023 ISSUE: The newest milling, grinding and welding technologies and services help to extend rail life, and reduce noise.
RAILWAY AGE, JUNE 2022 ISSUE: Track geometry and rail flaw detection product overview and market outlook.
RAILWAY AGE, JUNE 2021 ISSUE: Suppliers are providing the latest technologies to help railroads assess rail alignment and health, quickly and accurately.
RAILWAY AGE, MAY 2021 ISSUE: Regular steel rail maintenance not only extends service life, but also helps ensure safety. That’s why suppliers of grinding, milling and welding equipment and services are always fine-tuning and introducing new offerings to meet railroad needs. They discuss those, and today’s market.
RAILWAY AGE, JUNE 2020 ISSUE: Geometry—for many, one of the least-favorite school subjects (“When are we ever going to actually use this stuff?!”)—is imperative to the rail industry. Finding faults, on the other hand, is a preoccupation for some people. But for railroads, it’s also critical. Safety depends upon both.
RAILWAY AGE, MAY 2020 ISSUE: There’s a reason why Superman is referred to as the Man of Steel. The high-tensile alloy is strong yet modifiable. It serves as the foundation of Clark Kent’s alter ego, as well as the foundation of the rail industry. So it doesn’t take a railroader X-Ray vision to see that extending the life of steel rail by as much as 10 times is a solid idea. Rail grinding, milling and welding all can do just that. In addition, they’re excellent ways to reduce surface defects, increase fuel savings, move heavier loads and support faster train speeds.
Railway Age, June 2019 Issue, The Evolution in Track Geometry Technology: As railroaders know, establishing and maintaining proper track geometry requires frequent attention to maintain safe and fluid operation. Despite best efforts, derailments will occasionally occur due to geometry exceptions, prompting track engineers to look for more effective methods of correcting issues before they become problems.
The National Railroad Construction & Maintenance Association (NRC) announced the appointment of Russ Gehl, Vice President of Sales and Marketing (Maintenance of Way), at Holland, to its Board of Directors.
