Efficiency and Reliability with Flash Butt Welding

Flash butt welding is the most reliable joining technology for track construction and it is a proven fact that it provides the lowest failure frequency. Schlatter offers welding machines that run in different customized systems.

Welding Machines and Systems

Worldwide flash butt welding has become increasingly popular for production of continuous welded rails.

Mobile Rail Welding Systems

With the help of the mobile rail welding systems, continuous track sections are produced directly in-track.

With our high level of system expertise, we are able to assemble complete mobile rail welding systems from compact welding machines, carrier vehicles, power generators and further auxiliary equipment.

Stationary Rail Welding Systems

Stationary rail welding systems are mainly used in large welding plants for joining short rails to long rails. Furthermore, components for switch construction can be welded.

The Schlatter welding machines are the heart of this welding process and can be supplemented with additional machines to create a complete system.
