Welding and Track Maintenance Equipment

Light Profile Grinder RPLE

The Light Profile Grinder RPLE is part of Pandrol’s range of grinding equipment that is designed to maximise the life of the track across all rail heads and profiles.

The Light Profile Grinder is a precision grinder used to complete the final stages of profile grinding on the rail head after aluminothermic or flash-butt welding. It has been specifically designed to allow very accurate adjustments, so that the whole rail head top can be perfectly restored in a single operation. Two vertical rollers, seated on the rails can be used to ensure a perfect rail profile copy in every position.

When it is not in use, a quick collapsible supported seated on one sleeper maintains the grinder steadily on the rail.
