Rail clamps, similar to other track material “rail clips” or fixing clips, are designed to clamp on the tracks for preventing the movement of the railroad rail. Adjustable rail clamps allow necessary horizontal movement for the purpose of installation accuracy of different standard rails. The main application of rail clamps is for cranes. For the installation method, they can be divided into bolted rail clamps and welded rail clamps.
