Cast Iron Rail Breaker

The ArnoBreak R rail breaker was developed to process railway rails effectively. Breakable materials of our Cast Iron Breakers (ArnoBreak C) are brittle cast iron parts such as gear housings or engine blocks, moulds, cast iron pipes etc. Rails can be cut up immediately after disassembly (mobile version) in order to avoid the need for special transport. The stationary rail breaker offers a feeding magazine, which reduces personnel costs.

ArnoBreak C

Cast iron breakers can be delivered in two different sizes for the efficient processing of gear housings, engine blocks and other cast iron scrap. The ArnoBreak C 400 is used mainly for light scrap. The shear movement of the serrated breaking arm generates high breaking power producing optimal part sizes for smelting. Unlike cutting processes, the breaking process works with no tool wear.

Rail Breakers

ArnoBreak R

The ArnoBreak R rail breaker was developed to process railway rails effectively and can be delivered in two variants. The stationary design permits the processing of rails of up to 120 m in length. A magazine is used for feeding the rails into the breaker. There is a mobile version for use directly on the track, which is fitted with a diesel power unit and loading rig. It can efficiently break rails of around 24 m in length into short sections measuring 300 to 1000 mm. The mobile rail breaker, which is fitted on an extendable semi-trailer, can be moved to a different location very quickly. A special notching and breaking process ensures that the rails are broken with minimum tool wear.
