Schlatter is the market leader in stationary rail welding machines for long-welded rail production (LWR) and for welding machines for turnout parts, frog points and crossings. The mobile rail-welding systems are well known worldwide and are widely used for welding continuous-welded rails for high-speed tracks and heavy- haul tracks.
At Schlatter rail welding machines the focus is on quality. This encompasses both the quality, long life-span and low operating costs of the machines and the quality of the final rail welds. For good quality welds, Schlatter has developed the designated Schlatter Weld Processor (SWEP) which controls the main parameters ‘current’, ‘force’ and ‘travel’ and their correctly timed interaction.
These three parameters are constantly supervised by the new Schlatter Weld Analyzer which records every weld. Setting tolerance fields makes it possible to decide whether the parameters are in the desired range immediately after the welding process.
Schlatter offers various mobile rail-welding systems for in-track welding of continuous-welded rails (CWR). The latest development produces closure- welded tracks without separate pulling devices for de-stressing. Customers can choose between three different mobile rail-welding machines: Supraflex type AMS200, AMS100 and AMS60. All these mobile welders offer the same high welding quality but they have different rail end aligning systems. AMS200 and AMS60 align on the running edge (left or right side selectable) and are most suitable for high-speed railway tracks for passenger transportation. AMS100 aligns the centre of the web and is mainly designed for heavy-haul and conventional railway tracks.
The AMS200 has an autarkical deburring system, which makes it possible to deburr the whole rail profile automatically directly after welding, even when both rail ends are in a clamped position. Our AMS100 and AMS60 rail-welding machines also have an incorporated deburring system which deburrs automatically directly after welding around the complete rail profile.
