CORRUGATION GRINDING MACHINE RQ 1002 K60

Application and function

The corrugation grinding machine RQ 1002 K60 has been specially designed for use on tramway tracks. Its compact size and exceptionally easy handling ensureeconomical application, whether under normal service conditions or with tram operating intervals of under 5 minutes. Maximum in-and off-tracking time is 30 seconds. The machine is raised and driven sideways from the track by electric power. The machine is designed for one-man operation and can be employed on grooved and Vignole rails. Crossing and switching zones as well as tight curves(R > 46 ft) can also be processed. The track width is infinitely adjustable from 38.5 - 59 inch.

Grinding principle

The corrugation grinding machine RQ 1002 K60 is designed on the one hand for grinding middle and short pitch corrugation (Fig. A) and on the other for deburring
and re-profiling of the running edge and the outside edge of Vignole and grooved rails (Fig. B).

congu02

A) Short pitch corrugation grinding Short pitch corrugation consists of small ridges which form on the traction head of the rail causing noise and wear on the rolling stock. For corrugation grinding the traction head is ground with two rotating cylindrical grinding wheels arranged in succession (Fig. A). One of two grinding passes are made per operation, depending on the corrugation depth. By adjusting the vertical axes of the grinding wheels the traction head can be re-profiled in multi-facets mode. The difference in grinding angle and the number of single operations depends on the rail shape or on customer requirements (usually 4-5 operations). The resulting grinding dust ist suctioned off with a powerful vacuum cleaner equipment. The efficiency of vacuum cleaner amounts 2.877 yd³/h. The dust particles are filtered out with the built-in preseparator, the filter mat and filter cartridge. The spark protection is equipped with two suck off channels. The sparks themselves are not suctioned off but are prevented from lateral discharge by baffle plates.

B) Deburring/Re-Profiling of running edge after a long operating period of the rail the radius of the running edge may change or seamy formations may occur. The following method is employed for deburring and re-profiling the rail edges: The edges are ground with rotating cylindrical grinding wheels and the wheel spindles can be inclined up to approx. 55°. For deburring purposes a fixed angle setting is adequate. For re-profiling several passes with an angle difference of approx. 15° are necessary, depending on the accuracy of the radius required (Fig. B).

Performance: With corrugation depths up to 0.012"  and an average of 6 passes it is possible to finish-grind 580 to 820 ft of rail per hour. The feed rate of the machine is approx. 16 bis 28 inch/sec. In operation the machine can surmount gradients of up to 6 %.

Power supply and transport: The machine is supplied via cable with three-phase current (standard 3 x 400 V). Normally this is supplied from a sound-dampened diesel generator, which should have an output of at least 35 kVA. The cable can be up to 656 ft long. The generator is usually permanently mounted on a small truck (approx. 4 ton capacity). This vehicle is equipped with a lifting platform of 10 kN load capacity for transporting the corrugation grinding machine.

In - and off-tracking: The machine is raised by two electric elevating motors on two solid-tyre wheels arranged in the gravity axis. These wheels are driven by geared motors, enabling the machine to be rapidly driven off sideways away from the danger zone. For this purpose an appropriate cross-way must be provided in the open track.

 

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Dimensions: Track widths: 38.5- 59 inch, Length: 95 inch, Width: 87 inch, Height: 63 inch, Weight: 2150 lb
  • Grinding spindle drives: Three-phase motor 15 KW, 400V/50Hz

Grinding principle

The AT 3329 rail grinding unit is designed firstly for the elimination of short-pitch corrugation and short waves, and secondly for the deburring and reprofiling of the rail head and running edge of Trail and girder rails. The unit can also be used for the derusting of new rails, or for the finish grinding of rail joints etc.

Grinding of short pitch corrugations

Short-pitch corrugations are small waves which form on the rail head and cause noise and wear to rolling stock. On short-pitch corrugation grinding the rail head is ground by six rotating grinding wheels which are arranged in three dual-shaft assemblies (see illustration below). The angle of each shaft assembly can be adjusted individually so that per pass three different facets can be ground. Depending on the depth of the corrugations, one to two passes are made with the same grinding angle. The rail head can reprofiled in multi-facet grinding by adjustment of the vertical axles of the grinding wheels (fig. C, page 4). The difference in angles and the number of individual facets is dependent on the rail shape or on the customer’s requirements (normally 5 - 6 facets). The grinding dust emissions are suctioned off by a high-power dust vacuuming system with spark pre-separator. The sparks themselves are narks themselves are not suctioned off. Instead, they are obstructed from exiting laterally by baffle plates

Deburring/reprofiling the running edge

After prolonged service of the rail the radius of the running edge can change, or lippings can occur. The following method is employed for the deburring and reprofiling of the running edges: Grinding with rotating grinding wheels, in which case the grinding shafts can be inclined steplessly up to 72°. For deburring, a fixed angular adjustment is sufficient. For reprofiling, depending on the desired radius accuracy multiple facets with an angular difference of approx. 15° are required (fig. D).

Multi-stage check list for qualitative check on switches under the following heads: measuring position, technical detail, condition, size/number, maintenance recommendations

 

The switches to be inspected are compiled into one worksheet by means of the Profi software. The PC then loads the worksheet into the memory module. The display of the measuring device shows information on switch number, switch type, measuring position etc., together with the measurments themselves. The user-friendly menu offers a free choice from among the switches stored. It suggests the order of measurments within the switch, highlights the measurments carried out and indicates the measurments yet to be made. It allows the selection or input of structural defects from a pre-defined, multi-stage check list. All measurments and records of defects are stored in the memory module. After switch inspection, the data gathered in the memory module is passed to the PC and may be edited on screen or printed out. The memory module is then available for reloading. The inspection results obtained at pre-defined intervals are added to the switch history which thus provides a record of the whole life of the switch.
