IKF Depot Ashford

Sectors: Rail
Applications: Rail (low speed)

Summary: The Type HD was used to connect rail lines at Hitachi''''''''s Ashford Train Maintenance Centre

The M20 type HD Lindapter Rail Clip was used to safely secure UIC60 FB rails along lengths of UKC waybeams, the beams in turn supported on individual reinforced concrete plinths. The rails run in pairs down the length of the depot building giving access for any necessary repair and maintenance work on the trains.

The Lindapter Type HD is a family of three railclips: ‘Spring’, ‘Hard’ and ‘Soft’, all of which facilitate precise alignment of the rails by allowing a high degree of stepless lateral adjustability. HD is a user friendly innovation and will fit most rail types in low speed applications.
