For nearly 30 years, EWI has been the leading North American authority on materials joining and allied technologies for U.S. manufacturers. Our experience helping transportation and heavy manufacturers extends to the rail industry where we have had success applying advanced technologies to improve manufacturing efficiencies.

Our most recent success involves a collaboration with Holland Company, a leading provider of mobile rail repair. Together, EWI and Holland developed an innovative Head Defect Repair (HDR) process in which the damaged portion of the rail head is removed and a new steel wedge is flash welded into place. Flash welding plays into Holland’s strengths and enables them to make repairs for railroads in any weather, using an existing fleet of repair trucks to create high quality welds in less time, with minimal interruption to the track. Watch the video below.

The EWI Rail Manufacturing Technology Center is another way we are helping manufacturers in the rail industry. The Center was founded in 2009 to improve the reliability and sustainability of our nation’s rail networks and increase the manufacturing competitiveness of the U.S. railroad industry.
