Track Components

L.B. Foster Rail Technologies regularly assist customers in the design and development of assembly facilities for bonding insulated joints into rail.

Recently over 10 such facilities have been set up in various locations around the world.

L.B. Foster Rail Technologies’ engineers have assisted customers in the design of the assembly facilities including materials handling, curing processes, metering of adhesives and storage of components and finished goods.

We also regularly train customer’s installation teams in the correct procedures for installing site assembled dry insulated joint kits. Particularly, we have provided training where rail drilling is subject to tight tolerance controls and the accuracy of rail hole positions is integral to the ultimate performance of the assembled joint.

Our Purpose

Improve the design and supply of products and services required to enhance the performance of rail networks
