Tie Plate

Tie plate is used to take the load of rail and distribute the load to the sleepers. AGICO can manufacture all types of tie plates by either casting(welded or fabricated type), forging or rolling, applicable of different rail sections, for wooden, steel or concrete sleepers, depending on the load and rail standard, i.e. UIC 60, UIC 54, RN 45, 90 A, etc. If you choose AGICO, dozens of dies available for both forging and rolling.

Rail Anchor

Rail anchors or anticreepers are used where the fastenings system requires an extra creep resisting arrangement, which are made in one-piece construction from spring steel clips that attach to the underside of the rail baseplate and bear against the sides of the sleepers to prevent longitudinal movement of the rail, either from changes in temperature or through vibration, avoiding undo cutting and wear, thus prolonging the life of rail ties. AGICO produces different types of rail anchors. Different shapes of anchors are made of rolled bars of different sections. Our rail anchor quality parameters are all with the International Standards and are readily available in a considerable quantity at all times. Rail anchors are used in 50Kg, 85Kg, 90/91LB, 115RE /136RE, UIC54 and UIC60 rail, and so on. We can produce T or V-shaped rail anchors or customers special reservation.

Rail Nylon Insulator

Rail nylon insulator is installed between rail and tie plate, for adjusting rail gauge and electrically insulating railroad rails, clips and bolts from the interior of a concrete tie or sleeper. Its function is the same as a rail pad, but it is thicker than rail pad. For the high speed or high load train, it is a necessary fastener part.

Rail Pad

Rubber rail pads are widely used to reduce fatigue cracking of the concrete ties caused by the vibration of passing train. It is designed between the rail tie plate and foot of the rail, made by an elastic polyurethane mat, which is interposed between steel rails and tie sleepers to protect the sleeper top from wearing and impacting.
