Rail Pads

The main function of rail pads are to reduce fatigue cracking of concrete railroad ties, which is believed to be caused by impact and vibration loads from passing trains. They are typically designed to a specification set forth and is determined by the load-deflection characteristics of the rail. We fabricate our rail pads with two high-speed, dual-head Flow 2-Axis CNC Waterjet machines. These waterjet machines can produce up to 2,200 kgs of rubber tie pads per day. Material choices include:

  • Rubber
  • Masticated rubber
  • Cloth inserted rubber
  • HDPE


We are able to supply rail pads in custom shapes or contours to meet your specific requirements. Our waterjet cutters are fully-capable two-axis CNC controlled so creating any configuration is accomplished easily, including lettering and other identification. Since all the manufacturing steps are in-house, we can deliver quickly without sacrificing quality.
