EWI will host a webinar to introduce the process and benefits of a new friction welding method designed and fabricated for use on RE135 rail. Developed with support from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), the unique solid-state technique offers benefits including:

  • Lower impact on rail – No formation of martensite in the weld or heat-affected zone of the rail
  • Flexible – Uses threaded studs that allow for detachment and reattachment of signal wires from the rail for maintenance-of-way operations
  • Stronger – Provides twist-off strengths and conductivity that exceed other common industry techniques
  • Cordless – Battery powered and requires no tether to a truck

The webinar will be offered on the following dates: July 8, 9, 14, and 16.  (Material covered will be the same in each webinar session.)  To register, click the button with your choice of dates below.
