Rail Bend Testing Press type RBT326

The Rail Bend Testing Machine type RBT326, designed and manufactured by our specialists, is a rail bend tester configurable for 3 points bending (EN) or to 4 points bending (AREMA). The rail bend tester model RBT326 has been designed to be compliant with the bend test procedures listed in EN 14587-1:2007; EN 14587-2:2009, EN14730-1:2010 and AREMA norms.

In addition to its compliance with multiple standards, the RBT326 offers exceptional precision and repeatability in bend testing, essential for ensuring rail integrity and safety. Its robust construction and user-friendly interface make it suitable for both experienced technicians and those new to rail testing. This versatility, combined with its capability for both laboratory and standalone use, makes the RBT326 an indispensable tool for comprehensive rail quality assessment.

How does a Rail Bend Testing Press work?

In the rail bend test, the rail is loaded centrally on the weld to be evaluated while the load and displacement are recorded. This loading continues until either a preset deflection or load criterion is reached, or until the rail sample is broken.

The application records and monitors data in real time during the bending process. The data is processed and displayed at high resolution in a graphical format and stored on storage media for further processing.

The following parameters are recorded and displayed:

  • the load acting on the rail;
  • the displacement caused by the deflection of the tested rail.

Upon completion of the bending test, a detailed report is stored and displayed indicating whether the test met the required parameters. All bending reports are stored in a secure location and are accessible for viewing or printing.
