In our country, in the previous years, similar systems were used in the subway and Marmaray line, but they were imported products. High elasticity rail fastening systems are also becoming indigenous in our country, which has been striving for domestic and nationalization in every field. In this context, Make Railway company, which produces and exports various precast products, has cooperated with Gürmak, which successfully produces plinth systems and is a brand in plinth systems. With the collaboration with Gürmak company, Gürmak has supplied the connection systems, and a new patented system has emerged integrated into the boot system. In this way, the connection system will meet all the requirements in EN13481-5 and will perform high elasticity and vibration damping.
In the subway and conventional projects, more vibration and sound damping are required in recent years. With this local system, it will be used easily in sensitive areas where sound and vibration damping is desired, such as hospitals, mosques, concert halls where metro and railway lines pass under or near it. The system will both isolate sounds and vibrations from the rail system vehicle and isolate external sounds and vibrations. The İBB Rail System Department selected the Mas-ML1 system on the Ataköy-Basın Ekspres-İkitelli line.
With the first welding ceremony held today, Mr. Ekrem İmamoğlu, the President of IMM, made the first welding and the superstructure construction of the line started. May it be good for our country and Istanbul.
