  • WRIST: Innovative Welding Processes for New Rail Infrastructures

    WRIST will develop and demonstrate two flexible and cost-effective joining processes for rails, that will address the key degradation mechanisms experienced by welds in current rail infrastructure. The new processes also recognise the move of the industry toward higher speeds and axle loads and the need to increase capacity.
