Flash Butt Welding
The preferred choice for creating strong and reliable rail joints in the Australian railway industry - where durability and longevity are essential.
Flash butt welding offers several significant benefits, understandably making it a preferred method for joining rails in the railway industry.
In line with our best practice approach to service delivery, we have proven flash butt welding capability and a full range of equipment including three flash butt welding units, two mobile units (Holland DX170RW) and one static unit (Holland H-1000).
The units are designed with the ability to drag and position long lengths of rail, while being able to weld strings up to 400 metres. The welding heads are designed specifically for closure welding and have the capability to shear the upset and flash weld while maintaining constant tension on the rails.
We offer an experienced team focused on ensuring SRA remains a reliable and preferred contractor within the rail industry. We’ve developed our fleet and team capabilities to ensure we continue to provide the equipment and expertise our clients need, no matter your complex requirements.
“We have designed and fabricated a tri-gauge trolley for our static unit, giving us the flexibility to use this piece of equipment throughout Australia’s entire rail network,” Director Technical and Risk, Gary Holden.
