The key component of the 09-3X is the 3-sleeper tamping unit. It allows the machine to tamp three sleepers simultaneously during one single tamping process. Whether it’s maintenance operation or tamping newly laid track: compared to the continuous 2-sleeper tamping machine, the 09-3X model increases output by 30 to 40 %. And that’s not its maximum performance, but rather, an average value.
In 1996, the 3-sleeper tamping technology was introduced for the ﬁrst time. Ever since, the concept has been used around the world and continues to live up to its reputation. Globally, the name 09-3X is synonymous with simpliﬁed worksite logistics, optimal utilisation of track possessions as well as reduced costs for administration and staff.
During track tamping, the combined levelling and alignment laser guides the tamping machine according to the precision method. Using this method, the laser beam is displayed on the laser receiver camera (at the tamping machine) and analysed according to its position.
The combined levelling and alignment laser also allows producing a particularly accurate turnout geometry. In doing so, the ideal geometric position of the turnout (in the through rail) is recorded along the laser reference line.
Enjoy the benefits of standardisation with ModularCustomizing
We manufacture machines in our ModularCustomizing category based on a platform strategy. This makes maintenance, spare parts management, training, and homologations more efficient while tailoring them to you. The benefits of this approach are most obvious with our tamping machines, which have 100 configuration options from the get-go.
Economic – Ecologic – Ergonomic
The latest track maintenance machines use both the electrical energy from the contact wire and batteries to power the working drive. Our new E³ drive technologies reduce local emissions - of both pollutants and noise – to a minimum on the work site. Introduced in 2015, Plasser & Theurer’s E³ machines stand for: Economic – Ecologic – Ergonomic.
