Rail Welding Equipment

Straight Edges

Pandrol Straight Edges are long-lasting, easy-to-use tools designed to ensure accurate alignment before aluminothermic welding takes place – and to check the grinding tolerance when it’s complete.

Performing checks and adjustments is an important part of the welding and maintenance process, particularly on the ends of rails. Done right, it can help achieve perfect peak, horizontal and vertical alignment.

Straight Edge RAP1000 features flat and adjustable stops, and is designed for pre-welding adjustments. Use both sides of the tool to control level point, rail and web alignments with maximum accuracy.

Straight Edges RB500, RB700 and RB1000 are bevelled tools, and are designed to perform checks and adjustments on rail heads, webs and cant. Use them after welding to make sure the rail is completely flat.
