VGR and CGR shearing devices

Pandrol GmbH has developed a new generation of shearing devices that allow for aluminothermic welding of all types of rails. With this system, excess weld collar can be removed simply and extremely safely. We have optimized the weight of the robust steel frames so as to render the device user friendly and compact, while still retaining its stability and durability.
