Successful launch of new KNORR rail brushing machine


KNORR, specialist for fully automated non-destructive rail testing lines within the AMT Group, has developed a new generation of rail brushing machines. The first machine has successfully passed the workshop test. It will be installed and commissioned in September 2019 at a rail mill customer in India.

The new features are:

  • Consistently high brushing performance due to force-controlled guiding units
  • Easy change-over between rail profiles
  • Brush wear monitoring
  • One brush dimension fits all brushing units
  • Modular design reduces inventory of required spares

Brushing is the most convenient and economic way for pre-conditioning of rail profiles prior to non-destructive testing. KNORR’s brand new brushing machine improves the reproducibility of the entire testing process by significantly reducing the amount of loose and adhering contaminants, such as scale.

Coarse dirt is collected in a removable bin underneath the machine whereas dust is safely disposed of by an automatic filter system.

Less contamination of the downstream testing machines is the consequence, which in turn also leads to a higher overall availability of the entire testing line and lower cleaning effort.
