Development and fabrication of high-quality rail components
Kingrail aims to develop as many of its products as possible within the same facility in order to keep production costs to a minimum and allow for greater control throughout the production process.
Our cutting-edge production site features a wide variety of advanced tools and manufacturing equipment, including 150t to 20,000t capacity hot rolling and forging units, a wire electrode line and fully automatic heat-treatment facilities.
We are also equipped with CNC routing and electrical discharge machining (EDM) capabilities to accurately fabricate complex shapes and allow precise material tapering.
We deploy verticle and oblique-guide horizontal lathe cutters during the manufacture of our products for maximum speed and productivity, in addition to ensuring all parts are replicable and created in accordance with exact specifications.
Kingrail’s components are also subject to extensive testing in order to maintain the highest possible build quality and durability. The company’s extensive portfolio of testing and analysis equipment includes a coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and metallographic and spectrum analysers, as well as various magnetic (MT), ultrasonic (UT) and pulling-force testing units.
