Rail Services – Welding

Safety is inherent to railway systems and must be considered throughout their whole life cycle, from conception to dismantling, through their technological development, commercial exploitation, and maintenance. Railway safety does not depend on a single factor, all the elements that make up the railway system contribute, directly or indirectly, to reaching a certain level of safety.

The technology used, both the lines and the trains themselves, the training for human resources, the material means, the management systems, and compliance with procedures and regulations, are all factors to be taken into account throughout the entire safety process.

Welding in railway vehicle manufacturing is an important process for safety in public transport. In this case, EN 15085-2 is an established
element of quality assurance. Additional to the technical requirements written in the standard regulations for the uniform application that are necessary to be accepted in the industry.

The railway vehicles welding certification EN 15085 is an internationally recognized standard to ensure the highest quality of safety and performance when it comes to welding on railway vehicles. This certification is a must-have for any company that wants to be taken seriously.

EN 15085 is a European certification standard and was introduced to harmonize the requirements for welding materials during the manufacture and maintenance of railway vehicles. It builds upon the requirements outlined in ISO 3834 Quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials.

EN 15085 is recommended practice for any railway equipment manufacturer that supplies to companies located in any European Member State. Other countries, e.g. China, recognize EN 15085 as a performance and quality mandate.

For manufacturers, EN 15085 provides a way to demonstrate their commitment to quality and safety. It also gives them a competitive advantage in the marketplace. For customers, it provides assurance that the products they are purchasing meet the highest standards.
