Fish plate is commonly known as rail joint bar, which serves as a connection at the rail joint. It is divided into fish plate for light rail, fish plate for heavy rail and fish plate for crane rail. Kingrail Parts explains to you why fish plates are used in railway tracks
As a fastener used to connect and fix the steel rail and the rail, the use of fish plate is more labor-saving and labor-saving than the rail butt welding, and the installation is simple and quick. The fish plate is used in conjunction with fish bolts. The middle of the fishplate is provided with fishtail bolt holes, and the upper and lower sides along the horizontal axis of the fishtail bolt holes are provided with contact surfaces that contact the steel rail. The contact surface that contacts the top of the steel rail extends upward to form a section higher than the rail. The transition section on the side forms a bridge arch with a high middle and low ends along the length of the fishplate. The arched fish plate structure of the bridge can reduce the impact of the wheels on the rail joints, increase the longitudinal continuity of the rails at the joints, and improve the smoothness of the train when passing through.
