Technical solution

The APT 1500 R rail welding robot

Quality cuts costs

  • Automatic welding process ensures high reproducible welding quality
  • Automated geometrical alignment of the rails
  • Closure welding without an additional pulling device
  • Approval in compliance with EN 14587-2
  • Special clamping jaws allow welding without grinding off the rolling marks
  • Automatic evaluation and recording of the weld
