Pandrol’s team in Indonesia deliver bespoke Aluminothermic Welding training

Pandrol recently held nearly two weeks’ worth of training for KAI, Indonesia’s public rail operator, running from the 22nd – 31st March. The purpose of the training was to deliver an overview of each of Pandrol’s Aluminothermic Track Welding processes, which involves casting molten steel at a temperature exceeding 3,500˚F (1,950 °C) into refractory moulds designed to the rail specification.

The training was divided into three batches to cover all KAI branches, encompassing Pandrol’s PLA process on a range of rail types and applications including wide-gap welding. A total of 39 KAI employees received the training overall.
