Development of tailor-made innovations to achieve a unique degree of automation

When the Chinese high-speed railway construction boom started, HESS LANGFANG took a leading position in the development of Chinese railway sleeper production lines. Based on original production lines, HESS LANGFANG has further developed various tailor-made innovative plant solutions to achieve a unique degree of automation & flexibility.


In 2019, HESS LANGFANG received an order from China Railway 16th Bureau Group Co., Ltd. which had a special request on a highly automated production plant for high-speed railway sleepers. At the Annual Chinese National Railway & Rail Transit Conference, which was held on October 13, 2020 in Fuzhou, HESS LANGFANG was invited to present its latest automated production system to an audience of more than 150 experts. The audience was very impressed by the optimized production process and the resulting labor cost savings.
