Speno International – What we do

What do we do?

We design, develop, manufacture, operate and sell machines for reprofiling railway tracks and turnouts. We monitor the reprofiling by measuring profiles and surface defects and document the results.


Who uses Speno?

We maintain railway tracks in Europe and elsewhere for:

  • conventional railways
  • underground railways
  • high speed lines
  • heavy-haul railroads
  • tramways.

As well as our machines, we offer our customers our know-how and competence, producing the best results, with our constantly improving technical support and maintenance processes.

Defining a strategy and controlling costs

We apply all kinds of rail profiles.
Our aim: to minimize maintenance costs over a railway’s lifetime.

Speno International – Our philosophy

Our philosophy

Preventive maintenance and high quality generate the best return on investment.


Why reprofile?

Systematic reprofiling is good for the infrastructure budget and quality, because it:
  • prolongs rail life
  • reduces dynamic overload at the rail-wheel interface
  • increases wheel turning intervals
  • can reduce traction energy consumption
On ballasted railways, reprofiling:
  • reduces tamping frequency
  • reduces sleeper wear and ballast degradation

Long-term reprofiling planning therefore enables cost reduction. Many studies and articles support this conclusion.
