Technicians Project 2011
Young "researchers" develop rail web grinding
We congratulate our young "research team" to successful implementation of mechanical engineer project 2011 funded by Horstmann . The task of this year's project was the problem of a rail after the welding process. Blue color in the finish area, structural changes in the rail, less contact area between the copper electrode and rail as well as shortening the life of the copper electrode, are among the main problems after welding a rail.
The technical team "Michael Baumeister, Andreas Gerleve, Bernd Kloster, Mark Schlüter and Jan Schwarberg" at Horstmann Maschinenbau GmbH took this issue skillfully and then developed a very well thought-out rail web grinder, which avoid the problems caused by the grinding process
Horstmann Maschinenbau GmbH is pleased about this success and is already looking forward to the result of the next engineering-project.
