Geismar Modern Track Machinery Inc.: Model MP-12-H Rail Profile Grinder

Geismar Modern Track Machinery Inc.

The Model MP-12-H rail profile grinder permits reprofiling of rail heads after thermite welding. In the upright position, the machine can grind the top surface of the rail; and in the inclined position, grind the thickness of the head to recondition the rail head. It is fitted with rollers that hold the machine against the rail in any position; the distance between the rollers combined with the large-diameter stone assures a perfect finish, the company says. A power take-off is provided for fitting a flexible shaft for the use of other grinding tools. This grinder is designed to fit the requirements of small gang maintenance crews.
