The slide pad can prevent the wear of the sleeper and the crushing of the sleeper under the rail foot. Rubber track pads are usually designed to have the specified load deflection characteristics. The initial stiffness of slide pads is designed to be very low, so their deformation under the spring toe load is quite large. This ensures that the track pad remains in close contact with the track despite any vertical movement of the track. When the wheel is above the bearing bush, the rigidity of the rail bearing bush must be very high to prevent large movement, otherwise, the metal spring will become loose. This load deflection characteristic can be obtained by introducing a groove in the rubber guide pad. Rubber pads or grooved rubber guide pads are made of rubber or plastic to reduce the impact of train vibration during driving.
As a leading manufacturer of elastic track pads to protect railway sleepers from the power of moving trains, laineng railway accessories is one of the few suppliers of grooved rubber pads designed for Chinese railways. The rubber pad with groove is also widely used in China and abroad.
The combination of groove design and selected rubber provides these cushions with unique high resilience, firmness and weather resistance. They have a dynamic force reduction capability of up to 65%, which fully demonstrates their advantages over bearings made of other materials, which is a key consideration for the adoption of higher speeds and greater axle loads in the global railway system.
The rubber pad with groove between the bottom of guide rail and the top of sleeper can effectively reduce the impact force and extend the service life.
Rivet guide pads are made of a variety of natural and synthetic elastomers designed to withstand the most demanding operating environment.
Stud pads are the preferred choice for rail systems around the world because they use higher speeds and higher standards of passenger comfort and safety.
Studded rail pads provide excellent impact attenuation, noise suppression, improved passenger comfort and extended track and ballast life.
The unique design of these guide pads uses a combination of two polymers to provide superior performance and extended pad life.
