Rail rolling mill - The most modern worldwide for rails production
To meet the demand of its customers on all 5 continents, we operate the largest and most efficient dedicated rail rolling mill in Europe. If the output of only one single year could be strung together, it would bridge the distance between Northern Europe and Southern Africa.
By deploying our ultra-flexible rolling technology, we manufacture weld-free rail sections up to 120 meters, which are also available in many premium and super-premium heat-treated steel grades.
Customer benefit which we reflect by the fact we offer the widest product range of all rail manufacturers worldwide including numerous special rail profiles.
However, our competence is not limited to the production of rails in world-leading quality. By combining advanced technologies, process innovation, system expertise for the entire rail track, logistical expertise and service orientation, we can offer our customers a unique benefit package. Based on this wide spectrum of differentiation as compared with other rail producers, we are set to maintain and expand our leadership in delivering the highest value for our customers.
Rail steel production
We carry out the production of the railroad track steel at our own steel plant in Donawitz, Austria in process routes that have been optimized for rail manufacture. Our compact LD steel plant is
- one of the most modern in the world and
- focused on the production of ultra-clean special steels for areas of application in the railway, automotive and oil industry.
The intensive cooperation with the steel plant allows the continuous and holistic further development of more innovative rail steels taking the relevant aspects of metallurgy, rolling- and heat-treatment technology into consideration.
We do rail finishing in accordance with customer wishes, i.e. the rails are drilled, surface treated and bent according to specifications.
Rail quality control
In our testing center, all rails undergo a 100% non-destructive testing in newest facilities. In addition to the mandatory testing procedures defined in international standards, specially developed fully automated processes to measure the cross section as well as to inspect the whole rail surface over the entire rail length are applied.
Proven performance. Besides standard laboratory equipment for rail testing we operate full scale rail wheel test rigs in order to provide laboratory rail testing under real loading and contact conditions.
In addition, an extensive worldwide track test network allows showing the benefits of new and optimized rail grades in different loading scenarios (e.g. light rail, mixed traffic, heavy haul and high speed).
