Railways - SIAD Società Italiana Acetilene e Derivati
The Italian rail network is made up, altogether, of more than 15,000 km of railway line. The railway sector includes everything which deals with the construction and maintenance of the railroad line, over and above the manufacture of carriages, locomotives and lodgings. The right gas or gas mixture, just like the most specialist equipment, are extremely important factors in the successful outcome of the work, not only from a qualitative viewpoint but also in terms of profit.
SIAD, an accredited partner both in traditional technology and in the development of state-of-the-art, innovative technology, makes advanced solutions available which, at the same time, are economically beneficial. The correct combination of gas, processes and consumables make it possible, in fact, to obtain increments in the quality of workmanship, improvements in speed and, above all, a tiny percentage of repairs and consequential rejects.
The processes used in the railway construction sector are:
- Plasma cutting
- Laser cutting
- TIG welding
- Continuous wire feed MIG-MAG welding
- Flux cored arc welding
- Submerged arc welding
- Plasma arc welding
- Laser welding
- Friction stir welding
Apart from gas products, SIAD today offers a complete range of materials and accessories for cutting and welding, gas centralization and even, through its own partners, automated welding and cutting plants. The SIAD offer provides, furthermore, services such as theory and practical training courses, covering all eventualities.
