For our partners, this means we deliver our commitments to safety: striving towards zero injuries and accidents; quality: providing quality products and services and continually looking for ways to improve; and leadership: developing industry leading technology and employees.
Holland is dedicated to creating partnerships with our clients. This commitment begins with the initial contact, continues throughout the purchasing of equipment and beyond with service and support.
Holland will explore your company’s specific needs including your unique application, environmental or certification requirements. Training and support needs are analyzed to ensure your solution is the right fit and within your budget.
Continued Post-Sale Support
Holland’s commitment doesn’t stop once the first weld is made. We continue to provide you with training, operator certifications, parts and maintenance support. Replacement parts are inventoried and normally ready to ship within one business day.
As railways across the world continue to expand both passenger and freight capacity, railways are faced with the need for even greater track utilization and extended rail life, thus further reducing the available track time for track maintenance. This puts even greater demands on the railway and railway contractor to find ways to increase worker and equipment safety and efficiency and reduce track possession time. Holland’s welding solutions all you to get the job done quickly, safely and with unmatched quality.
Flash-Butt Container Welder
Our Container Welder supplies the complete welding package, including a power unit and welding machine manipulator, in a compact and efficient configuration. It can be used as a stationary welding machine to generate long welded rail sections, or on a customer supplied mobile carrier to deliver in-track welds.
Our MobileWelder was first introduced to the industry and pioneered by Holland in 1979. This versatile flash-butt welding machine is a virtual mobile welding plant that can travel both on the rail and on the highway and is easily relocated from one job site to another.
All-Terrain MobileWelder ®
While the flash-butt weld is an important part of extending rail life, the effectiveness of the delivery of the machine to the weld location is a critical component in reducing the work window and track occupancy to meet the growth requirements of the railways.
That requires machines that are able to:
- Access track with small of no road crossings
- Convert from road-to-rail and rail-to-road quickly
- Work from rough sidings alongside track
- Perform work on adjacent tracks in extended reach applications
- Maintain stability in extended reach applications
- Work within clearance restrictions from overhead lines, third rail and adjacent track
- Perform reliably, consistently and safely
The latest technology in road/rail flash-butt welding machines to address these requirements is the All-Terrain MobileWelder (ATMW). Mounted on an excavator base, the ATMW is designed to convert from road-to-rail quickly and gain track access from smaller crossings and level access locations, provide increased mobility on track, reach and work on adjacent tracks, work from alongside of the track, and work within track/tunnel clearance envelopes.
The development of the ATMW was undertaken in cooperation with several railways and railway contractors in different countries. Outfitted with today’s advanced welding machines, quality control software, diagnostic tools, hi-rail designs, stability controls and more; the ATMW has proven to be a successful piece of track maintenance equipment serving railways in the UK, Eurasia, Australia and the USA in applications ranging from heavy-haul to metros.
Holland’s Argus™ revolutionizes the world of track geometry measurement. Full track geometry and optional rail profile measurements are provided in a lightweight, compact & low power package. Argus's™ cutting-edge technology offered at a competitive market price sets the standard for the new economy of track measurement systems.
Unlimited applications are realized when you reduce the size, weight, power requirements and packaging while increasing the versatility of geometry measurement technology. Argus™ is ideal for installation on dedicated manned measurement vehicles and can transition seamlessly to autonomous applications. Argus's™ low cost and 100lb system weight also make it a practical option for track inspectors’ hi-rail vehicles.
The design of Argus™ includes redundancy of critical components with automatic switchover. This maximizes system uptime. A failed component doesn’t necessarily result in lost data or system downtime. For unattended operation, a fully redundant secondary system is deployed in order to reduce the potential for data loss.
