The equipment for grinding, boring or sawing rails.

Abrasive rail saw, rail saw machine: these motorized materials cut fastly and precisely, without modifying mechanical and metallurgic characteristics of the rail’s steel.

Rail drilling machine : guarantees the fast drilling of any kind of rails: flat-bottomed rail, grooved rail, in track or in workshop.

Rail grinder :

- rails joints: they permit to correct end rail’s deformations;
- fishing surface: in order to eliminate the scale of the rail spirit where metallic items called fish-plates are, which link the rails;
- profile: steps in while recharging the rails;
- welding: steps in after the aluminothermic welding in order to give the rail profile to the welding.
