The Plasser 08-16 SH represents the standard for compact tamping machines in split-head design. It contains the tamping and measuring technology of high performance tamping machines. For this machine design we packed our top technology into a compact machine frame. The 3-axle basic structure with work units and measuring systems offers sufficient scope for individual equipment chosen from our modular system.
On the basis of many years of experience, Plasser & Theurer has developed various lifting and lining units which fulfil both requirements and are well suited for specific operating conditions.
ROLLER LIFTING AND LINING UNIT
This work unit is fitted with two lining rollers and two roller lifting clamps per rail, gripping the rail under the rail head. They lift and line in one operation.
COMBINED LIFTING AND LINING UNIT FOR TURNOUTS AND PLAIN TRACK
This work unit has lifting hooks and lining rollers. On request, it is possible to mount additional roller lifting clamps. Lifting and lining is performed in one operation. The lifting hooks can be applied either under the rail head or under the rail base. The entire work unit can also be displaced in longitudinal direction. This ensures that the work unit can be adapted to every situation during turnout maintenance, achieving an optimum lifting and lining process.
Quality cuts costs: our machines turn a tidy profit
To date, Plasser & Theurer has supplied 17,000 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.
