Fasten the railway track construction process by using a mobile milling machine

Are you familiar with the way railway tracks are being constructed? The process by which the railway track is being constructed, is an intensive one. It requires a lot planning since there are many components. That is why you trust the expertise 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.

Choose for slab tracks with lower maintenance costs

From the day that train travel has been invented, the railway sleepers that have been used were made of wood. Still today, many railways in the world are made from 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.

How does the railway track laying procedure work?

Ever since the invention of train travel, the construction and engineering of railway tracks has been the same way. Recently however, there was a change. That is until a Belgium-based company revolutionized their railway track construction process and laying procedure. Stabirail figured that using slab tracks instead of wooden sleepers had many advantages. Every day they are laying more kilometers of track. With the arrival of a milling machine, the production of the tracks is happening very smoothly. Due to the simplified railway track laying procedure, the tracks are safer than ever before. This construction process makes the railway track more reliable and lower in maintenance. Mounting rails was never this easy.
