Tamping Machine Upgrades from Plasser & Theurer

Many of our machines have been in operation for several decades. During this time, technological progress has been made. New machine functions make it possible to complete certain tasks more easily. Thanks to the top quality of our machines, upgrading older machines with the latest technology really pays off: it increases the output achieved, enables a more flexible operation and reduces the machines’ susceptibility to failure.

Therefore, we are offering “machine upgrades” providing you with different service options.

New rotation speed modulation for tamping units

The new rotation speed modulation makes it possible to modulate the rotation speed of tamping units during the individual work phases. This reduces both wear on the tamping units and noise emitted during operation. Every machine is checked separately prior to the installation of the upgrade.
