Vossloh will presents its latest innovations for more durable and sustainable railways at RailTech Europe 2022 next week in the Netherlands. The company will expand its product offering with more durable and safer materials that have the added benefit of a lower overal carbon footprint.

One of the products that Vossloh will be featuring prominently is the so-called Engineered Polymer Sleeper, which is manufactured from the composite material amalentic. As the traditional wooden sleepers are gradually being removed in many places around the world, Vossloh believes it has the right alternative at hand with its Engineered Polymer Sleepers. The composite has qualities and characteristics that make it suitable for a wide variety of applications and customers. The sleepers have an expected lifespan of around 50 years and are fully recyclable.

Vossloh will also be showcasing the hybrid version of its HSG-cuty Grinding Machine and the Track Milling (VTM)-compact machine. The latter can remove as much as 2 millimetre of material per machining run. The former is used for removing minor and median range rail damage.

There will be more information available at the so-called Vossloh-Topic-Lounge.com at RailTech Europe 2022. If you are not registered yet, don’t miss out on the opportunity and sign up here for the conference and exhibition.

The safest, the most energy effective, on shore transport device, but regrettably, so far a not sustainable… A paradox it seems.
“Sustainable” (Not just “more”…)railways will be, when proving the high quality device, a robust (not just, comfortably by misleading comparatives) when costs are sufficiently low, for sustainably allowing sufficiently low track charges, etc.
(Currently, regretfully, maintenance is not performed when requested, but, not sustainably, at authorities’ – priorities.)
