Mobile Flash-Butt Welding

Holland is the industry leader in the field of flash-butt welding, not only in terms of available resources, but also in experience and dedication to continual development of new technology that enables us to adapt to the evolving requirements of the railroad community. In 1972, Holland unveiled the first self-propelled railcar with a portable electric flash-butt welding machine in North America. Today, our fleet is the largest in the world with over 200 MobileWelders® across North America and Australia as well as flash-butt welding equipment operating in over 36 countries.

Our Intelliweld® Control System provides an unmatched degree of accuracy and quality in the production of rail welds. We pride ourselves as pioneers in developing flash-butt welding technology that continues to provide high-quality and cost-effective solutions. As we continue to innovate welding solutions we apply our industry-leading technology and expertise across a variety of applications.

Flash-butt welding provides a number of benefits over thermite welding such as faster installation, reduced maintenance costs, and a stronger joint with consistent hardness. Learn more about the Benefits of Holland’s Flash-butt Welding Versus Thermite Welding
