However, these two types of railway spikes are very different in terms of production technology. Commonly used manual spikes are an earlier production method in the production process of railway spikes. This production method uses hand-made methods to make railway spikes hot embryos, so the railway spikes manufactured by this production process will have certain defects. For example, the surface of railway spikes will have some bulges or burrs, and some railway spikes will have more or less weight. Compared with this kind of railway spikes, another kind of rail dog spikes can avoid these problems well, that is, mechanical spikes. The production process of this railway spike is a combination of manual and mechanical production. The surface of commonly used machine-made road studs is smooth, and the weight of each road stud is not much different. The railway spikes produced in this way can be used in better batches, and the problem of high defective product rate like ordinary manual spikes will not occur during use.
Railroad spikes are very important railway fasteners, we must pay more attention when installing. You can usually learn about the installation skills and precautions of railway spikes, which will be very helpful for our future installation work.
