iaf 2022 – 17,000th machine

The 17,000th machine built by Plasser & Theurer in the company's almost 70-year history was handed over to a customer from the iaf partner country Poland. More than half of all Plasser & Theurer machines are still in operation today. The road/rail Plassermatic 08-275 ZW is a classic for urban networks.



  • Variable maintenance of plain-line tracks and turnouts
  • Time-saving turnout tamping thanks to tamping unit segments which can be lowered individually
  • All tines are in tilting design
  • The world’s leading tamping technology – tested under various operating conditions on every continent
  • Integrated lifting jacks ensure the machine can be self-loaded onto flat-bed trailers to transport it on roads
  • Greatest flexibility, particularly for networks without siding tracks

Quality cuts costs: our machines turn a tidy profit

To date, Plasser & Theurer has supplied 17,700 machines. Most of them are still in operation. This attests to the quality of the machines and the value of our Customer Services’ life-long machine and fleet support. Plus, it proves that high quality ensures high cost-efficiency: machines that have been in operation for 20 or 30 years paid off years ago.
