Innovative and tailor-made for challenging applications in the field of rail systems


With our prestressing steels, we are a reliable partner for our customers in the railway sector. In terms of surface, mechanical-technological properties and designs, our wire qualities are ideally suited for all common sleeper types, requirements and production technologies. Together, we will find the right solutions for complex and demanding challenges.

Bearing steel wire from voestalpine Wire Technology is used in rail vehicles. With our years of experience and expertise in the production of bearing steel wire, we guarantee the highest purity, uniformity and hardenability, as well as the best formability and dimensional stability of our products. 

High-quality bearing steel wire is the basic requirement to ensure that the potential of rail vehicle bearings can be fully exploited and life cycle costs are reduced.

Rail clips are used on concrete sleepers to fasten rails on both sides. The rail clips usually consist of spring steel wire rod. In addition to the individually tailored final geometry, the purity of the steels and the correct temperature control during the rolling process are essential to produce a high quality end product.

With our pioneering and innovative wire solutions, we guarantee our customers the opportunity to be one step ahead in the future. We meet the requirements in the area of rail systems reliably, flexibly and efficiency, and are specialists in customer-specific solutions.
