RAIL TUG

Welding & Cutting Carriage

The Rail Tug is a digitally controlled tractor designed for the mechanization of welding and thermal cutting processes. Featuring a rack and pinion drive system with electronic speed control, the Rail Tug creates weld bead geometry which is exact to your specifications, reducing costly over welding and decreasing filler metal usage.

The Rail Tug can be used with semi-flexible track for plate and tank work with a minimum radius of 5 m (16 ft) or adapted to bent ring rail for pipe and tube applications.
