The article discusses the innovation in rail fastening technology by the Pandrol Group. The technology involves switch-on switch -off fully captive threadless fastening. Pre-assembled sleepers are delivered to the track laying site, thereby eliminating loose component distribution and handling. Pandrol has made a further step by bringing together mechanized equipment from Rosenqvist with stressing rollers from Vortok to provide a high-output solution for efficient track renewals. It is stated that the system yields maximum time and cost savings.
