Vallmar Engineering Announces High-Rail Maintenance and Repair Solution
New heavy equipment design allows railroad maintenance groups the ability to efficiently perform maintenance and repair on difficult to access railway.
Taking an innovative concept from inspiration, through development, to real-world application is our core business … and our greatest reward.
For years, railroad maintenance groups have struggled with the ability to efficiently and effectively perform maintenance and repair tasks in difficult to reach locations. Access to areas on and around the tracks, and transportation of maintenance equipment to and from the area to be repaired and maintained often proves problematic at best. The challenge is that most of the same technology has been in place since the 1940s, and dependence on this outdated methodology has cost the industry in financial terms as well as in a lack of efficiency and reliability.
One hi-rail equipment supply company decided there had to be a better way. Vallmar Engineering was brought in with the goal of engineering a high-quality design that would increase safety and decrease costs when it comes to repair and maintenance in the high-rail industry.
Vallmar’s solution was a friction-powered machine that works on both rough terrain and on rail. Powered by its own engine and rotation of the existing tires, this Friction Drive Rail solution allows existing machines to become rail-ready through consistent components and applications. It offers the flexibility to adapt to the need of the equipment and OEM accessories to fit the repair/maintenance application at hand. In addition, it allows for several future opportunities, including hydrostatic-powered, hybrid system and all-electric solutions.
