System AMS60 for High-Quality Alignment


The development of the AMS60 focused on the exact alignment of the rail ends, laterally at the running edge and vertically at the running surface. Therefore the AMS60 is most suitable where exact alignment is essential – as it is for high-speed railway lines.

System AMS60

In the early 1990s, Schlatter developed the first mobile rail welding machine of this kind, with the most innovative feature of lateral alignment at the running edge. Lateral alignment at the running edge is easily selectable: left or right-hand side. The running surface of the rail ends is also exactly aligned by pushing the rail head up to vertical stops before clamping the rail ends.

This principle of lateral and vertical alignment has proven its worth and thus the AMS60 is often the preferred machine for rail welding in high-speed lines. In numerous countries the necessary homologation processes have been completed successfully.
