In close collaboration with partners ÖBB-Infrastruktur and Getzner Werkstoffe, voestalpine Railway Systems developed a system turnout with innovative features in the areas of frogs, switch rails, fastening system, drive unit, and sleepers. The system is constantly monitored using proven technology and a new innovative sensor and measuring concept.
Innovation made by voestalpine Railway Systems
In order for rail travel to be more attractive and competitive than other transport alternatives, it has to operate virtually undisturbed 24/7. This requires low maintenance product solutions combined with digital monitoring of track components. That’s where the latest track innovations from global market leader voestalpine Railway Systems come into play.
Better maintenance planning
A highly elastic fastening system combined with proven, wear-resistant rails and a newly developed switch rail profile increases the maintenance-free service life and optimizes life cycle costs. Plus, the Roadmaster Light monitoring system installed in the point machine monitors the condition of the system and forecasts its future condition. This makes it easier to plan maintenance work and minimizes the risk of sudden failures.
