After welding, the machine performs automatic deburring with the subsequent return of the equipment into the initial position.
The control system is built using the Omron NX series industrial controller and ensures the following:

  • Set up, adjustment, and monitoring of the quality-relevant process parameters of the welded joints
  • Welding process control
  • Actuators status monitoring
  • Power system status monitoring
  • Real-time updates on the welding process progress
  • Registration and storage of welding process data for each welded joint
  • Issue of certificates for each welded joint
  • Self-monitoring and diagnostics

The control system automatically compares the actual and target parameters and visualizes the welding process status using diagrams and tables.
Each welded joint certificate (welding report) contains the following information:

  • Operator name
  • Foreman name
  • Welding date
  • Joint number
  • Rail type
  • Welding conditions
  • Welding duration
  • Welding process oscilloscope record
  • Primary welded joint conformance data based on the tolerancing results

Closed loop self-contained cooling system ensures the reliable and efficient heat removal from the welding machine electrodes and transformers. Coolant – G12 antifreeze or similar.

2.2.5. Induction heating machine UIN001-100/RT-P for post-weld heat treatment.
High frequency induction heating machine UIN 001-100/RT-P is used for post-weld heat treatment directly in track. Post-weld heat treatment is performed by the uniform heating of the entire rail cross-section in the welded joint area to a specified temperature with subsequent rail head hardening by forced cooling with compressed air.
Machine components:

  • Frequency converter
  • Heat treatment unit consisting of a heater, a hardening device and a heat treatment control unit.
  • Compressor with receiver
  • Water cooling unit
  • Switching units

The UIN 001-100/RT-P machine specifications are listed in the Table 3.
