Pandrol

Reputation for Technical Innovation and New Product Development

Pandrol continues to build on its reputation for technical innovation and new product development by establishing three centres of excellence: Worksop in the UK for fastenings, Hudiksvall in Sweden for equipment and control and Raismes in France for welding.

Testing is carried out to international standards such as CEN (Europe), AREMA (USA), RTRI (Japan), CRCCC and CARS (China) and any other local railway authorities.

Not only does Pandrol have an extensive and enviable test laboratories worldwide, we also employ technicians with extensive experience, degrees and affiliations to their relative professional institution, such as the institute of Mechanical Engineers.

Product Development and Material Scientists

The test laboratory has a technical support team, such as Product Development and Material Scientists on site that can advise on material selection and condition. The laboratory can offer the full suite of tests for any standard, including severe environmental, impact attenuation and electrical resistance testing.

Pandrol has the ability to run a full suite of tests in house, without the need to subcontract, providing customers with the highest level of service.

In the UK, the former Product Testing Laboratory was expanded with the addition of new rigs to increase capacity and flexibility. The laboratory was redesigned in accordance with Lean Manufacture to enable a smooth work flow. The testing laboratory is also a showroom for customers to visit and observe their assemblies being tested. The new controllers can display exactly what is being tested, as well as the deflections and loads being applied.

UK Fastening Systems Development

The UK Fastening Systems Development and Testing Laboratory has the capability for suites of tests to be carried out on Pandrol brand rail fastening assemblies to ensure compliance with national and international standards. This includes, but not exclusively, BS EN 13481 and BS EN 13146 on concrete, timber and steel bearers/sleepers including slab track fastening systems.

This extensive testing facility ensures that the rail fastening assembly meets the necessary standard and trackwork specification required on a specific project.

The UK laboratory also has the facility to carry out testing on individual components, such as the rail pad, clips etc. which can be tested to ensure it exhibits the desired characteristics and properties.
