Geismar’s carbide rail sawing & drilling machine: a turnkey solution for SNCF

Geismar’s teams have successfully completed the installation of the carbide rail sawing and drilling machine ordered by SNCF, which is now part of its installation in Saulon, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté.

According to the national operator’s expectations, this fully automated machine-tool contributes to the operations of its “Centre d’excellence rail” (Rail excellence center), the only workshop in France which includes a production line dedicated to short rails.

Versatile, the Geismar carbide rail sawing and drilling machine allows precise cutting and drilling operations on 3 to 36 meters rails, meeting customer standards and expectations. This latest generation technology offers a high efficiency thanks to its powerful drill spindle and the hydraulically driven blade which eliminates all vibrations.

Fully integrated into a cabin, the whole installation includes the machine, the control panel, the hydraulic power unit as well as the electrical cabinet, thus presenting a turnkey solution for SNCF.

This final stage marks the project’s completion for which SNCF already expressed full satisfaction and renewed trust in Geismar.
