Welding Light Rail Profiles
July 14, 2023
With over 300km of light rail and the largest light rail network in the world, Australia transports more than 255 million passengers annually across these networks. Reliability and performance of the rail is imperative to these operations. The added complexity that comes with light rail networks also means that standards must be rigorous like those seen on heavy rail networks. Much like Light Rail Networks, infrastructure that utilise profiles such as crane rail can often be hard to access and require upmost reliability along with longevity. With experience welding heavier profile rails such as A150, a Flashbutt weld mad with a Holland G-Head welder can be made within 270 seconds. Our expertise has seen Holland deliver heavy rail Flashbutt welding for Kennedy Space station, Alcoa Aluminum and various port authorities around the world, as well as streetcar systems across North America.
