Welding

All over the world rails are welded using Goldschmidt expertise. In addition, Goldschmidt offers a number of processes for the repair and maintenance of rails and switches: for a longer service life and to ensure that all types of trains and trams run quietly and safely and are environmentally friendly.

Insulated Rail Joints

Goldschmidt offers a wide range of insulated rail joints which meet the requirements of regional railways in all countries. These high-quality products contribute towards the safety and reliability of railway networks worldwide.

Digital Solutions

The digital tools, measurement systems, software solutions, cloud databases, services and interfaces within Dari® enable railway infrastructure operators to manage their tracks in a smarter, more effective and sustainable way.

Inspection

Goldschmidt offers a comprehensive portfolio for the identification of rail defects, for the evaluation of track geometry, track condition or rail profile. Whether as a hand-held measuring device, integrated into trolleys, road-rail vehicles or inspection trains – Goldschmidt enables you to ensure the safety of your tracks.

Tools & Equipment

Goldschmidt offers proven tools and machines for the professional execution of work on railway tracks. The products work efficiently, precisely and offer a high level of operating comfort. Special equipment ensures more safety, availability and comfort during operation.

Road-Rail Vehicles

From overhead line installation vehicles and inspection vehicles for public transport companies, to special vehicles for the inspection of mainline bridges – Goldschmidt supplies the right road-rail vehicle for the application.

Proven Processes Taken Further

Passengers want to reach their destination safely and in comfort. Companies want to economically transport freight on time. And network operators require a railway network with a long service life which can be run profitably without operational restrictions.

Safe Joining

The railways are the most reliable, comfortable, economic and ecological way to transport people and goods. They are therefore an integral part of all viable and sustainable mobility concepts. But this requires reliable railway tracks with a long service life. Many railway organizations such as Amtrak in the US, the Chinese National Railway and the light rail networks in Europe operate their trains and trams on Goldschmidt expertise. Around the world high-speed trains, freight trains, heavy haul trains, trams and underground railways glide over continuously welded track. This is made possible by the Thermit® welding process which enables Goldschmidt to make an excellent connection between almost all types of rail.

Goldschmidt also knows no compromises when it comes to maximizing safety. With its insulated rail joints, Goldschmidt offers
efficient products that are customised for the specific requirements
at the place of use in order to divide the rail network into individual,
electrically insulated track sections. In this way, the occupancy of
track sections can be reliably determined – a fundamental requirement for the safe operation of networks.

Smart Solutions with Added Value

The high investment necessary for modern railway networks has to ensure the good, long-term condition of the track and continuous availability. This is the only way to fully exploit the potential offered by rail as an alternative form of transport for people and goods.

Smart Inspection

Companies and passengers require reliability and safety. Rails are only able to fulfil their role with regard to the future of mobility if they are and remain stable and available. Consequently, Goldschmidt, with all its expertise, actively promotes intelligent inspection of track conditions. This is the most important preventive measure against heavy wear due to continuous loads and possible rail defects and is the best measure to ensure a long and successful service life of each and every rail.

Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance sustainably extends the service life of rails and switches for underground networks, tram networks, light and mainline rail networks and reduces long-term operating costs. Goldschmidt takes these tasks particularly seriously, with state-of-the-art, continuously developed and digital technology. The invaluable experience gained from a wide range of projects around the world helps to maintain all types of rail networks in good condition and therefore safeguard your valuable investment.
