AGICO Rail Rubber Pad

High Quality Grooved Rubber Rail Pad

Our range of grooved rubber rail pad is very effective to reduce the shocks of vibrations caused by the trains while passing through the tracks. These rail pads are highly demanded in railways due to their robustness, long service life and effective use. With good mechanical features and sustainability, these products can be customized and are available at a reasonable price.

Ray Pad for Crane Rails

The ray pad is an end product made from synthetic elastomer and is used in heavy crane roads and between rail and supporting structure. It is manufactured in various widths determined according to rail base dimensions and standard length of 12m. The rail pad may be manufactured in different lengths and sizes due to special demands.

Rail Pad for Sale

Installed with resilient crane rail pad, railtrack ia able to keep safe when movement and rotation is at small amounts. Rails lie on a pad (called soft mounting), the stress is distributed between crane wheel and rail, and contact surfaces. AGICO offers two rail pad types, one for a continuously supported rail and one for discontinuous mounting.

AGICO Supply Rail Pad Types:

AGICO specializes in producing rail fastening parts include Rail Pads. Keep the rail stable, to preclude and buffer impact, increase friction and reduce vibration, rail EVA pad lies between the rails and base plates. It can be made of HDPE, EVA, rubber, and EPDM materials. Main rail pads are made for E type rail fastening system and SKL type rail fastening system.

Why Choose Rubber Rail Pad

The combination design of studded and specially formulated rubber compound has shown exellent property, VIP-Polymers patented rail pads have high resilience and abrasion resistance. Their superiority to those manufactured from other materials has been proven by their ability to reduce dynamic forces by up to 65%, which is a crucial consideration for railway systems worldwide as they adopt higher speeds and greater axle load.

Rail Pads Role and Railway Safety

Ray Pad for Crane Rail

The rail pad, in the early times named sole plate, is used below rail track and concrete. Rail pads are added to reduce fatigue cracking of the concrete ties, by relief impact and vibration from the passing train.

It is thought that the rail pads have 2 main functions: they diminish shock or impact loads by providing compliance, and they reduce (by isolation and perhaps by damping) resonant vibrations created in the concrete ties (lowest resonant frequency about 200 Hz) and accommodate vibration deflections in the rail sections between the ties (about 0.12mm amplitude, 1000 Hz).

Rail Pad Function in Railway Fastening System

The raid pad prevents rail-sleeper abrasion and the crushing of the sleeper under the rail foot. Rubber rail pads are normally designed to a specified load-deflection characteristic. The initial stiffness of the rail pad is designed to be low, their deformations under the springs toe loads is quite substantial. This special design keeps the rail pad remains in intimate contact with the rail despite any vertical movements of the latter.

When the wheel is over the pad, the latter's stiffness must prevent large movements, so as to prevent metal spring becoming loose. Such a load-deflection characteristic can be obtained by introducing grooves in the rubber rail pads. Rubber pad or grooved rubber rail pad are made up of rubber or plastic to dampen the shocks of vibrations of a passing train.
