Test systems for the railway industry – PUFIB

The PUFIB multipurpose testing bench can perform biaxial static and dynamic tests (tensile, compression, bending and torque) on complete track set.


The PUFIB machine allows testing in accordance with the main international standards, including: EN 13146-1 (Determination of longitudinal rail restraint), EN 13146-2 (Determination of torsional resistance), EN 13146-4 (Effect of repeated loading), AREMA chapter 5, as well as other standards belonging to entities such as GOST, UIC, AS, etc.
