50kg, 85kg, UIC54 P65 Drive-on rail anchors and Spring type rail
Rail anchors made in one-piece construction from spring steel are
designed to fasten the rail tight on the base of the rail to
prevent the rail from longitudinal movements, i.e. the “ creeping”
of the rail, caused by changing temperature, grades, traffic
patterns, and braking action of trains.
Rail anchors are applied to the rail base directly and lodge up
against the tie. Rail anchors provide a large bearing surface
against rail base and rail tie, preventing cutting and wear, and
eventually to prolong the working life of the rail ties. Anchors
are made for a specific rail weight and base width, which can be
classified into two types: the Drive-on rail anchors and Spring
type rail anchor.

Types of rail anchors:
1. Rail anchors are always used in rails such as 50kg, 85kg, UIC54,
UIC60, 90/91lb, 115RE, 136RE, just to name a few. We can produce T
or V-shaped rail anchors as well as other types according to
clients’ requirements, by forging or casting.
2. Generally speaking, based on our former production experience,
most common material for rail anchor production is 60Si2MnA, which
is often used for rails such as 50kg, 70lb, 80lb, 90/91lb and so
Application Rules of Rail Anchors
How to use the rail anchors? There are general rules on the
application of rail anchors:
- Rail anchors should be on the gage side of the rail base against
the same tie face on opposite rails.
- Rail anchors have to hold the rail base tightly and firmly and have
full bearing against rail tie face.
- A new rail anchor and a rail tie will be needed when the bearing of
rail anchor against the tie has been disturbed.
- Anchors shall not be moved by driving them along the rail.
- The rail ties should be kept straightened when the anchors are
