Concrete Sleepers and Track Systems
The PCM RAIL.ONE Group has been manufacturing concrete sleepers and track systems for urban transit and long-distance rail transportation for over 60 years. The technology leader also offers its expertise in the fields of engineering and plant construction. Its customer-driven innovations fulfill the highest quality standards and are installed around the world. The PCM RAIL.ONE Group is comprised of several companies and eleven production facilities with a presence in Germany, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Spain, South Korea, Hungary, Turkey, the United States, and India.
The proper choice of a track system depends on many factors. Each project, after all, places different challenges. Which system is the best for a certain application? Is a ballasted or a non-ballasted solution advisable? Sometimes a simple solution will lead faster to your goal – and sometimes a sophisticated system is the better solution over the long run. In any case, RAIL.ONE can offer the appropriate solution: We help you to find the right way.
Systematically toward success
A track system by RAIL.ONE is always a tailored solution, in which systems are adapted to special requirements. Curves, bridges, fill sections, tunnels, and turnouts place the strictest of requirements on the route. Foundation-soil characteristics have crucial consequences for planning. What physical forces and environmental influences can be expected? How will the soil react to operational loads over the long run? And: What logistics requirements must be considered during construction? After all: optimization of the process chain is our primary goal, and this includes construction-site access, transport paths, and material supply.
From the environmental standpoint
As future-oriented means of transport, rail systems are eminently capable of fulfilling their responsibilities to the environment. Where strict limit values for airborne noise and vibration apply, especially in densely populated areas, innovative mass-spring systems and noise-absorbing products assure good neighbourliness. Increasingly, aesthetic criteria are applied to track systems, particularly in urban environments. Parasitic current must be dissipated below stipulated limits, and RAIL.ONE places importance on the intelligent disposal of waste water and other liquids. Careful selection of the system also determines the service and maintenance expenses of a track system: foresight in planning can eventually save considerable amounts of money.
