  • Hybrid drive concept: uses the overhead contact line or diesel. Can be operated in a carbon neutral way for working and running mode.
  • Reduces noise emissions significantly - the machine is ideal for use in urban areas and tunnels
  • Variable maintenance of plain line tracks and turnouts
  • Maximum flexibility in the turnout thanks to variable use of 16 tamping tines, 3-rail lifting, and 4-rail tamping technology
  • The world's leading tamping technology - tested under various operating conditions on every continent
  • The frame is designed to maintain the heaviest types of superstructure (heavy haul lines)
  • High machine availability thanks to a maximum speed of 100 km/h in running mode under own power
  • Approved for line category C2 (axle loads ≤ 20 t)

Fit for the future of the railway

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.
At Plasser & Theurer, we have taken the classical tamping machine to a new level. The Unimat 09-4x4/4S E³ uses the electrical energy from the overhead contact line not only for electrical traction during transfer travel. It is also used to power the tamping unit electrically for the first time. The crucial working parameters remain unchanged. If there is no overhead contact line available for current collection, we use a diesel-electric generator to supply electrical power.

Features

Individual Design for your individualised machine

When it comes to complex high-capacity machines, the requirements of machine operating companies do vary. Country-specific criteria and individual needs are equally important. We satisfy your special requirements with Individual Design machines. This means we design and manufacture machines tailored to you. In particular, your experiences in daily operation shape the final product. 

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.
