Rail Clip Definition

Rail elastic clip is used to fasten the rails to the base plate together with the concrete sleeper. Rail clip is usually made of spring steel which is produced by hot forging process. Because of the uniform microstructure of forged clips, it is considered to be better than other metal forming process.
