Rail Care Solutions: On track expertise.

The current expansion of the rail network means that the requirements for the maintenance and repair of traffic routes are also increasing. This makes it all the more important to have a partner at your side who not only thinks together with you in matters of maintenance, but also thinks ahead. With our wide range of innovative and cost-effective solutions, Rail Care Solutions ensures that rail transport does what it is designed to do: roll smoothly.

Keeping your rail network in motion.

Aging and insufficiently maintained rail networks make even the most modern train look old. Rail Care Solutions offers a wide range of innovative technologies and services from a single source to ensure that things never get that far to begin with – whether through our high-precision recording of the condition of the track network, our detailed planning of the work to be carried out or our systematic execution of maintenance and repair work.


Measuring systems

Documenting the metrological condition of the tracks forms the basis of our work and gives us an overview of the next steps and necessary maintenance required. This involves evaluating existing data using the latest measuring technology – from selective digital measurements to recording the entire track network.

The grinding of tracks and switches is a critical operation in modern rail maintenance tasks. Our corrective grinding measures on existing tracks as well as our preventive treatment of new tracks are important elements in significantly extending the life cycle of your rail infrastructure assets.

In the case of fundamental rail defects or extreme profile deviations, economical processing using grinding technology is often not possible. To ensure the tracks continue to offer a maximum service life, we rely on innovative and consolidated milling technology.

For reconditioning tracks and switches, or for complete maintenance of grooved rail sections, welding technology requirements should be both fundamental and effective. In order to meet the high demands of inner-city work, Rail Care Solutions relies on specially-trained personnel and specialized machinery that is adapted to these challenges.

Track management

Modern data management is essential for implementing a proactive maintenance schedule for track infrastructure. This is another reason why Rail Care Solutions has played a pioneering role in this field for many years – because only a systematic inspection and understanding of the big picture shows us where, how and when we need to target our approach.
