Rail Maintenance Equipment

Home/Rail Maintenance Equipment

The ATS rail maintenance machine is a hydraulic and pneumatic powered rail machine that has been specifically developed to make the job of rail sawing and drilling easy and accurate. Traditionally this work is done with equipment and tools that produce rough and inaccurate work. This in turn causes derailments and excessive wear on rolling stock wheels and bearings. Soon to come will be a new ATS electric rail saw.

  • The Patented Rapid Rail Drilling & Sawing Machine is now available as a Hydraulically powered rail maintenance kit made up of the Rapid Rail Sawing Machine and the Rapid Rail Precision Drilling Machine. The set has been specifically developed to make the job of rail cutting & drilling easy and accurate - whilst keeping the machine light and easy to transport. Traditionally this work is done with equipment and tools that produce rough and inaccurate work. This in turn causes derailments and excessive wear on the Rolling Stock wheels and bearings.  Because of the completely square edge created when a rail is cut by the Rapid Rail Sawing Machine and the unique twin drilling system on the Rapid Rail Precision Drilling Machine, holes can be drilled consistently and precisely. This ensures all joints uniformly comply with required standards, independent of when or by who they are drilled. The drilling procedure is simple and free of ambiguity.  In order to drill fish plate holes, after cutting the rail to size using the Rapid Rail Sawing Machine, simply position the drilling unit at a point where the cut has been made, push the cleanly cut end of the rail against the adjustable end stop, and clamp the drilling unit onto the rail. Next, feed the drills into the rail by turning the drill feed wheel. Once the drills have been fed completely through the rail, return the drills to the retracted position, unclamp the unit and lift it off the rail. The job can be completed in well under 5 minutes.

  • The Patented ATS 2000 Pneumatic Rapid Rail Maintenance Machine is a pneumatically powered rail maintenance machine, that has been specifically developed to make the job of rail sawing & drilling easy and accurate. It is lubrication free, and can cut and drill rails from 22kg to 60kg. Simply position the Pneumatic Rapid Rail Maintenance Machine at the point where the cut needs to be made. Clamp the unit onto the rail, switch the motor on, turn the saw feed wheel and cut through the rail. Reverse the saw feed wheel, and return to the open position. Switch the twin drill head motor on, Then turn the feed wheel on the twin drilling head which is already in the correct position. Drill the holes through, retract the feed wheel and the drills return to original position. Unclamp the rail clamp; lift the unit off the rail and job is complete in just 5 minutes. 22 – 60kg Rail Capacity Results – Fast, Accurate and Absolute Repeatability, which is in the Machine and not the Operator

In order to cut the rail - simply position the cutting unit at the point where the cut needs to be made and clamp the unit onto the rail. Next, feed the blade into the rail with by turning the saw feed wheel. Once the blade has been fed completely through the rail, return the saw to the open position, unclamp the unit and lift it off the rail. The job can be completed in well under 5 minutes. If required, the rail can now be accurately drilled using the Rapid Rail Precision Drilling unit - specifically designed to be coupled with the Rapid Rail Sawing Machine.
