Rail Cutting Discs

Pandrol’s range of Rail Cutting Discs has been designed for ease of use, durability and effective cutting. Both products in the range have a longer life than other products on the market, which reduces the number of replacement discs needed and saves time and money.

Rail Cutting Discs product overview

At Pandrol, we recognised that rail maintenance teams needed a new, powerful solution for cutting heavy duty steel track. Pandrol’s HC 355 Rail Saw is compatible with all three cutting discs in the range and ensures fast, accurate and safe cutting of all rail profiles and grades.

  • As rail track technology continues to make major advances to cope with increasing axle weight and tonnage, the steel used for tracks has become purer and harder
  • This, combined with high levels of carbon, manganese and silicon and the heat treatment used in manufacturing, has made cutting operations an increasing challenge

Benefits of the Rail Cutting Discs
