Unimat 08-4x4/4S

Perfect maintenance of switches & crossings (S&C)

The machines of the Unimat 08-RT series have been an important innovative step towards maintenance of modern high capacity S&Cs. The heavier designs of S&Cs due to the use of concrete sleepers and heavy duty rails can be treated effectively and carefully with the 4S tamping banks in split design, the use of the 3-rail lifting device, the pivoting suspension of the tamping banks and the large distance between king pin centres of bogies.

Preserving the above mentioned constructional features, the Unimat 08-RT series represent a further step towards perfecting the maintenance of S&Cs. Apart from the quality of work, which can be achieved by the Unimat 08-RT, this is also shown by the fact that the time needed for tamping an S&C with the Unimat is usually up to 20% shorter compared to conventional tamping machines.
