RT&S Virtual Conference: Track Geometry & Rail Flaw Detection 2024

RT&S Track Geometry and Rail Flaw Detection
July 11, 2024 - July 11, 2024 | Virtual Conference | Start time: 2pm ET, End time: 3:30pm ET

Event Info

The RT&S Track Geometry and Rail Flaw Detection Virtual Conference—scheduled for July 11, 2024—will cover the importance of and best practices for maintaining proper track geometry, as well as the most recent updates in rail flaw detection.

Attend the live broadcast and ask our experts your own questions!

Maintaining proper track geometry, including grinding and milling, is both an economic and safety issue. Economic in that proper geometry will prolong the life of rail, and safety because improperly maintained geometry can lead to derailments.

In addition to track geometry, we’ll cover the latest rail flaw detection methods. Serious rail flaws can lead to disastrous consequences if not caught early and remedied.

A must-attend for Class I railroads, short lines, consulting firms, and suppliers alike.
