In the past few years, trains have changed a lot. However, this does not count for railway tracks. Wooden sleepers are often used, even if they are developing a lot of movement over time. This makes them not reliable for our current transport system. Stabirail developed a way to solve this, without having an intensive laying procedure for the railway track. With the usage of ballastless or slab tracks the rails do not move after they have been laid. Besides that, they are very low in maintenance which saves companies a lot of money. But that is not all. The advantages also include a longer lifespan of the tracks and an outstanding track geometry. The company even developed a way to make the construction process easier by mounting the railway track directly to the concrete.
Choose for slab tracks with lower maintenance costs
A long time ago someone invented that people could travel by train. From the start of train travel, a lot has changed. Trains became different and innovative. Unfortunately, most railway tracks are still made of wood. But as you can imagine, these tracks cannot handle the stress our public transport systems puts on them. That is why a Belgium company started testing a modern approach to the construction process and laying procedure of a railway track. Stabirail found out that the usage of slab tracks is more efficient for our transport system. But they tend to have a labor-intensive construction process. And that is when the company created ballastless tracks to allow then to work faster with lower maintenance costs.
A faster railway track construction process with a mobile milling machine
Are you ever responsible for a railway track construction process? That it is likely that you know it is an intensive one. Planning is really important in this process. That is why you trust the construction and engineering of Stabirail. This company has made a machine to make the procedure of laying a railway track much more efficient. The use of a mobile milling machine, which they developed, makes that possible. It is a way to mill the concrete and make it perfect for the ballastless or slab tracks. By attaching the tracks directly to the concrete, they are more durable and less subject to deflection than the old wooden railways. The milling machine is operated by one man and makes the production of slab track railways more accurate.
