8x4 tamping unit

Tamping with high performance and maximum flexibility
The 8x4 tamping unit is an entirely new category in the field of universal tamping technology. As its name suggests, it features eight independent tamping unit segments with tiltable tamping tines. The continuous 2-sleeper Unimat 09-8x4/4S tamping machine can switch to 1-sleeper tamping mode as required. This adds value, especially when working on hollow sleepers, where the point machine is located, or on twin sleepers. Double-slip turnout tamping is turnout tamping at its finest. The 8x4 tamping unit easily masters this task using its power reserves and versatility. Thanks to these features, your machine combines the high performance of 2-sleeper tamping with maximum flexibility.
