Drop Forging For Rail Clamp

Rail clamp, also known as railway clamp, railroad clamps, sometimes called rail clip or rail fixing clip, is kind of device to be clamped on tracks to prevent the train from moving or passing a given point to the ground (as at platforms or on stub tracks) to avoid risks or dangers. Such rail clamps are always boltable, self-locking, adjustable with fine tolerance and high clip strength.
Due to the high volume and high quality requirement on rail clamps, drop forging is suggested to produce rail clamp. Ideal material could be carbon steel such as Q235 or other grade.

To start drop forging, the dies are designed and manufactured first whose cavity is the same shape of rail clamp. Different from casting mold, the dies need to bear high pressure and tool steel such as H13 is used as the dies material. Once forging dies are ready, the material bars are cut and heated, then tranferred to the forging press, then pressed between forging dies to achieve desired shape. Next, remove the flash on trimming dies, and shot blasting to clean the surface of rail clamps. The whole drop forging process of rail clamps is very fast, and the quality, especially the strength, can be guaranteed.

Drop Forging refines the grain structure of rail clamps and develops the optimum grain flow, which imparts desirable directional properties such as tensile strength, ductility, impact toughness, fracture toughness and fatigue strength. In addition, drop forged rail clamps are free from internal voids and porosity. The whole forging process achieves very consistent material uniformity, which results in uniform mechanical properties and a uniform, predictable response to heat treatment.
