With rolling stock seeing great innovation in recent years, it is curious that tracklaying has changed relatively little in decades. Still, this does not mean the system is perfect. The wooden sleepers that are often used deform and shift over time, making our trains run less reliably. Still, necessity is the mother of invention, and Stabirail pioneered the use of concrete-anchored ballastless or slab tracks. These rails are extremely solid and sturdy, not shifting after being placed. The laying procedure is low-intensity, and there is little to no maintenance required. All these developments work to seriously reduce railway companies’ operating costs. The advantages don’t end there, however. These rails feature the highest accuracy commercially available, longer track lifespans and an overall lower whole-life cost than wood-anchored track.
The process of railway track construction, simplified
Are you intending to lay railway track for commercial purposes but unsure about the right construction process? With ever-growing transportation systems, the existing methods of track construction prove inadequate from a safety and maintenance perspective. Stabirail’s autonomous tracklaying system solves all these problems at once. The first train mills concrete and builds the trackbed to millimeter accuracy. The second drills holes with a water-cooled diamond bit for the track anchors. The third and final train lifts the ballastless tracks into place and secures them. This integrated system significantly speeds up construction time, saving construction time and money.
Get on track with your railway construction using Stabirail’s innovative process
Constructing a railway track is a lengthy, intensive process. The amount of parts and the accuracy required necessitate picture-perfect planning. Where normally ballastless track is assembled track-first, Stabirail’s bottom-up construction process makes for a rapid completion of your railway. It even allows for easy construction over bridges that would normally sag with weight differentials, and integrates slab track perfectly with the tunnel for absolute stability.
