To meet our customers' demands for shorter delivery times, better availability of spare parts, and reduced costs, we are fundamentally rethinking one of our most important product segments: compact tamping machines, a key technology worldwide, are being completely re-engineered and combined into modular assemblies. This will enable us to meet customer requirements even better in the future.
For Plasser & Theurer, customers are the focus of every development. Through close collaboration with machine operators, operating companies, and other decision-makers, we have been part of the railway system's long-term success since 1953.
In a constantly changing market environment, it is particularly important to be a reliable partner and to optimally implement the new demands placed on us as a supplier. For example, the life cycle costs of machines are becoming increasingly important, and the interplay between different machines in the fleet is moving into focus. As a result, the availability of spare parts and the modularity of assemblies that can be installed on different machines are playing an increasingly important role.
The engineering effort needed for highly complex machines is enormous. For this reason, Plasser & Theurer is completely rethinking the concept of compact tamping machines. In the future, the Plasser CompactTamper will be based on a modular system. Various standardised components and assemblies can thus be individually assembled into a machine according to requirements. This saves time and costs without sacrificing flexibility.
Standardised interfaces will enable easier upgrades or retrofits in the future. Modularisation offers many advantages with the usual amount flexibility. A wide range of products can be offered to meet individual customer requirements. At the same time, an ecosystem of products and services is gradually emerging. They are designed to complement one another and to help our customers to organise their activities efficiently and cost-effectively.
