R&D Consulting – A71

R&D Consulting has, since 2012, helped its clients to access over £15million of Research and Development Tax Credits.  This generous but underutilised relief from HRMC is particularly applicable to the rail industry.

Infrarail will be the perfect place to educate visitors on the benefits of making R&D claims and to dispel the often-held belief that R&D Tax Relief is only for those wearing white lab coats.

Whilst a lot of the larger accountancy firms offer R&D services to their clients, these are often only targeted at large clients generating big fees. Meaning smaller firms are missing out on a tax relief specifically designed for them. This can be because the process of claiming seems too daunting or that firms simply don’t believe that the work they undertaken would qualify.

R&D Consulting’s goal is to make the claim process as simple and easy as possible for its clients.

Rail Media – H18

Rail Media is proud to be media partner for Infrarail once again. A long and close relationship sees Rail Engineer organising and presenting the keynote and industry presentations in the Seminar Theatre while RailwayPeople.com powers the Recruitment Wall, where exhibitors can advertise their latest jobs for the duration of the show.

Visitors will also be able to speak directly with the editorial teams from RailStaff, Rail Engineer and Global Rail News, and also meet the organisers of the popular Rail Summits and Roadshows.

Two major new events will be promoted at Infrarail for the first time. The Rail Partnership Awards, organised for and in conjunction with Network Rail, will take place in Birmingham in June. A year later, Railworx 2019 – the new outdoor show for the rail contracting industry – will take place alongside the established Plantworx show in Peterborough. Ask at the stand for more details.

This year’s RailStaff Awards will bring over 1,000 people to Birmingham in November for the industry’s biggest awards evening. The only rail awards for people not companies, the RailStaff Awards recognises the outstanding work that railway people do in the course of their everyday work. Have you nominated anyone yet?

Railmetrics – G02

Railmetrics will be demonstrating automated Laser Rail Inspection System (LRAIL) inspection results from projects in Singapore and the USA at this year’s Infrarail.

Most rail inspection sensors in the marketplace today are limited to a single function; they measure a specific parameter such as gage, or perform a single task, such as imaging.

The LRAIL delivers greater return on investment by combining high-resolution rail imaging with 3D scanning in a single pass and automating the inspection process. It  captures an impressive 1 mm resolution X and Y 3D profile with a vertical accuracy 0.1 mm of the rails, ties and ballast area at speeds up 60 km/h at 1mm intervals, 120 km/h at 2mm intervals and 180 km/h at 3mm intervals.

Automated algorithms analyse 3D profiles to make key measurements such as rail geometry (cant, alignment, curvature, etc) and to detect key defects (rail surface flaws and damaged sleepers).

Rosehill Rail – D51
