How do we deal with deep rail defects? With profound Knowhow.

Milling is usually employed in situations where grinding is not a viable option. In other words, especially where there are deep rail defects, cracks or extreme divergences from the target profile. In these cases this procedure allows for a deep, highly efficient corrective repair of the rail profile – thus playing a fundamental part in extending the life of these critical components.
