Vossloh’s HPM train operates non-stop at speeds of up to 2 km/h, removing 3mm on the running surface and up to 9 mm on the running edge. A single pass rectifies even severe rail defects, and the rail is accurately reprofiled to a condition that is virtually like new. With its service life thus considerably prolonged, replacing the rail becomes unnecessary. HPM’s on-board tool calibration system ensures a sustained surface quality.
Measuring equipment for eddy current testing and for checking the rail profile’s longitudinal undulation and cross-section can also be integrated into the train at the customer’s request.
