Long Rails up to 108 meters unwelded
Since 1909, rails and railway structures used for the construction of the whole Italian network are manufactured in Piombino plant.
It is possible to produce rails from 27 to 75 kg/m up to 108 metres unwelded with very strict and uniform tolerances that satisfy European and international standards and technical specifications.
The use of high definition video cameras and of laser sources during the rolling phase allows for the constant measuring and monitoring of the profile dimensions and of all the process data such as product temperature, speed, the rolling rate, the efficiency of the equipment and the ID-tracking. The rail plant is equipped with two automatic hot marking machine controlled by the information system which manages the entire production line.
The machines have a revolving head and can print multiple markings on the rolled product moving on the roller-way at the foreseen rolling speed. This marking system guarantees the identification of every single rail produced as required by the international standards and/or by the Customer's technical specifications.
