independent incorporated cutting
blade for excess weld material.
patented rail pre-tensioning system.
excellent rail alignment.
high quality weld process and welding results.
high productivity and efficiency.
low maintenance costs.
simple to use.
tightening torque up to a 2000 kN
required for pre-tensioning operations.
max. section of rails to be welded 12000 mm2.
Mass: 4000 kg.
speed on road in both directions 35 Km/h,
speed on rail in both directions 47 Km/h.
Clearance gauge configuration:
the machine in question, loaded on the rail trolley is in compliance with the international clearance gauge.
Self-positioning on road or rail track:
by manoeuvring the front and rear outriggers, the machine can be automatically positioned from a road surface to a railway line and vice versa.
The VAIACAR SPARK RAIL type rail/road mobile flash butt welder, constructed following the current Community Directives, has been CE certified and is in compliance with all the applicable standards. Additionally, a Certificate of Approval may be issued on request for the obtaining of the Ministry of Transport vehicle registration document.
