Weld Trimmer

Weld Trimmer

A weld trimmer is a machine that is used to trim the excess metal after welding a joint. The weld trimmer is placed over the rail head, keeping the joint in between its shearing blades. The clamp provided with the machine is universally adjustable for any section of rail to ensure proper completion of the job to be performed.

The weld trimmer works by using a hydraulic cylinder to force the shearing blades together. The shearing blades are made of hardened steel, and they are able to cut through the excess metal without damaging the rail.

The weld trimmer is also equipped with a safety guard that prevents the operator from coming into contact with the shearing blades.
