One of the items Vossloh is going to be showing at the iaf is the compact variant of its high-speed grinding machine, the “HSG-city”. This model has been specially designed for railways inside conurbations and offers transport undertakings run by local-government bodies an effective and economic means of looking after their rails and keeping noise levels down. The mobile milling of rails is also going to be an issue to complement their preventive grinding. The new “System Flexis” makes it possible to perform work to prevent the occurrence of surface defects on the rails of switches and crossings. Another new machine is the road/rail welding truck.
Vossloh Fastening Systems is displaying its latest developments for high-speed, heavy-freight and local railway lines. What the group has to show under the heading of “quiet rail” includes a test installation for cellentic - a special material for reducing structure-borne noise and vibrations.
Vossloh Cogifer is going to be presenting “Easyswitch” and other technical signalling components as representative of its broad range of system offerings for switches and crossings as well as integrated solutions in this technologically demanding field. Without doubt, one special highlight is doing to be BTW (the Automatic Break Transmission in Electrical Wire System). This is a patented monitoring system to prevent the theft of cables, a topical and much debated issue throughout the railway world.
