Grinding

At Thermit we are able to deploy a variety of rail grinding machines to account for a multitude of grinding requirements. In conjunction with our mother company the Goldschmidt Thermit Group, we are able to provide a wide range of high quality grinding services, through the use of specialised machinery, ideally suited for the restoration of both metro and urban track.

Our grinding solution is set to solve issues such as:

  • Removing mill scale from the running surface before operation
  • Reducing noise by grinding off corrugation
  • Removing defects from the running surface or the gauge corner
  • Extending lifetime of infrastructure by re-profiling the rail
  • Reducing cost of maintenance of rolling stock

The following grinding services and machines are available:
