PLASSER & THEURER: The APT 1500-R automated flash-butt welding robot, already certified for use in Germany and Austria, will be at the heart of the Plasser display this year.

In addition, the company’s track machine range and automated tracklaying equipment will be displayed in model form on its stand, supported by a range of audio and visual material highlighting its wider capabilities, including automated catenary installation and renewal.

Plasser will also offer details of its training and aftersales support to customers, provided partly at its training centre at Bingen-am-Rhein in Germany.
