Retrofits for all machine lengths

Retrofits for all machine lengths

Plasser & Theurer is ringing in a new age of track maintenance. Along with machines and technologies, the strategic expansion of Customer Services is at the top of the agenda. In July of this year, the new European Distribution Center will open in Linz. It will allow us to secure the original spare part supply chain for our customers. In terms of services, Used Machines stands out as a newly introduced segment. This service will allow customers to purchase used Plasser & Theurer track maintenance machines directly from the manufacturer.

Retrofitting, i.e. the refurbishment and modernisation of older machines, is also one of the fast-growing segments at Plasser & Theurer's Customer Services. Together with the partner network, machines of different shapes and sizes are refurbished and essential features are brought up to the state of the art. The time-tested SSP 110 SW ballast regulating machine is only one example. For tamping machines, such as the Unimat 08-475/4S, this offer comprises an upgrade to the latest tamping technology with a sustainable electric drive. A machine length of 114 m is not an issue: a track relaying train of this length is currently being refurbished in Linz.

Machine, fleet, and infrastructure remain at the top of the agenda

Providing technologies that respond exactly to customer needs is the main goal in the year of the largest international trade fair for track technology. In addition, the Austrian technology leader remains true to its objectives in the machine, fleet, and infrastructure segments. In the machine segment, ModularCustomizing is a new offer that provides an individualised fleet with high standards. In the fleet segment, the focus remains on services over the entire machine life cycle. In terms of infrastructure, digital solutions for maintaining railway infrastructure and complementary services continue to be the main topics of interest. Another test vehicle of the EM-VT series is being launched. On board: the latest measuring technology for testing new technologies in practice and for expanding the range of services for infrastructure companies.

All in all, Plasser & Theurer continues to expand its range of technologies and services with the clear goal of using innovation to promote the railway’s position as the most eco-friendly transport system. Enhancing the capacity of this transport system is becoming increasingly important for the sustainable thinking for tomorrow. Plasser & Theurer is prepared to meet its requirements.
