Rail Anchor

Rail Anchor Application

Rail Anchors Production from AGICO

AGICO manufactures different types of rail anchors from special T shaped spring steel, after the forging and heat treatment it has advantage of uniform strength and lasting service. The anchors are used where the fastenings system requires an extra creep resisting arrangement. There are various shapes of the anchor which is made of rolled bars of various sections. When wheel runs on the rail, the railway anchor grips the rail firmly and when set against sleepers, resists longitudinal movement of the rails caused by passing trains.

Rail Anchor Production Process

Rail Anchor Production

The quality parameters of rail anchor has been produced strictly according to International Standards and large quantity can be provided to customers for largeproduction capacity. AGICO rail anchors can provide full raise base contact, distribute creeping loading evenly, Eliminate sleeper chewing and climbing, so choose AGICO as your supplier for rail anchor and other rail fastening parts is a wise choice!

How does Rail Anchors Work

Rail anchors are applied to the rail base directly and lodge up against the tie, they are equipped to fasten rail track on the base plate and sleepers, it is designed in one-piece construction to prevent the rail from longitudinal movements, as“creeping” of the rail, which caused by changing temperature, grades, traffic patterns, and braking action of trains.

Rail Anchor Fixing Rails

It provide a large bearing surface against rail base and rail tie, preventing cutting and wear, so as to prolong the working life of the rail ties. Rail Anchors are made for a specific rail weight and base width, which can be classified into two types: the Drive-on rail anchors and Spring type rail anchor.

Application Rules of Rail Anchors

  • Rail anchors should be on the gage side of the rail base against the same tie face on opposite rails.
  • Rail anchors have to hold the rail base tightly and firmly and have full bearing against rail tie face.
  • A new rail anchor and a rail tie will be needed when the bearing of rail anchor against the tie has been disturbed.
  • Anchors shall not be moved by driving them along the rail.
  • The rail ties should be kept straightened when the anchors are applied.

Russian Rail Anchor

Russian Rail Anchor

The Russian rail anchor is a kind of casting product used in the construction of railway. It is made of QT400-15 materials. Its mechanical properties in the as-cast state are fully compliant to the standard TOCT 7293-85.
