Plasser SmartTamping – The Assistant

The digital future of turnout tamping has begun. “PlasserSmartTamping - The Assistant” is a turnout tamping assistance system that has made a revolutionary step towards the automation of tamping machines. It simplifies tamping in turnouts and crossings, with no extra measuring run needed. 

The turnout tamping assistant supports operators in achieving consistently high tamping quality. Turnout main-tenance in the technologically correct sequence and with consistent quality is the result, no matter what the setting is. Plus, the manual tamping option is still available. Par-ticularly in times where there is a dearth of experienced staff, the system gives infrastructure operators security.

65 years of experience in tamping technology feed into the digital tamping assistant.

The measuring system for documenting track geometry

The digital recording processor (DRP) records, evaluates, and displays various track parameters, such as the longitudinal level, alignment, crosslevel, and twist. The real-time display on the panel PC enables immediate analysis of the individual channels and makes it possible to describe individual events using the comment function.
