The number of defective welds in track has been greatly reduced thanks to the adoption of these smart technologies. Thanks to these continuous improvements and innovations, Pandrol remains a world leader in aluminothermic welding with best-in-class product quality and the lowest failure rate.
Pandrol’s continued investment in new technologies such as digital simulation, the Preheating Controller, and the new High Flow Preheater, is vital for maintaining market leadership and shows Pandrol’s commitment to adding value for customers. Furthermore, to ensure ongoing recording of data before, during and after welding, Pandrol has introduced the new Pandrol Connect mobile application to digitalize tracking and traceability of welding parameters. The app was developed in response to the issues of weld traceability, which can be a major challenge in areas where many different contractors are involved. Efficient traceability is essential to gather, trend and spot anomalies in weld performance data, which is also crucial for optimizing costs. The app enables live data capture, a significant time saver for contactor teams.
These technical advancements allow Pandrol to support customers with digitalized approaches to welding, making good on the promise of Industry 4.0.
