Split Head technology

Split Head tamping units for work on tracks, turnouts, and crossings are tamping units divided in longitudinal direction of the machine. Each of the two work unit halves can be lowered and put into action separately from the other. Additionally, both work unit halves, depending on the design, can be laterally displaced together or individually.
For operation on sections of plain track the two halves are locked together to form a tamping unit for tracks.
