Unimat 08-275
With inivdually tiltable double tines.
The demands

All-around application on plain track, switches and crossings without reduction of work speed or quality of work, i.e. all tamping lines in action – no time-consuming adjustments.

The answer - The Unimat

The Unimat 08-275 carries 16 individual tilt able tamping tines. In basic position the tamping tines have the same constellation as on plain line tamping machines. The Unimat 08-275 is thus well suited for all around, high quality application on switches, crossings, station tracks and the plain track.

The Unimat tamping unit combines the advantages of tiltable tamping tines for work on switches and crossing with the positioning of the tines in pairs for tamping plain track.

The results
  • Greater durability of tamping due to more tines in action.
  • Substantial timesavings when tamping switches and crossings
  • Work speeds as high as a normal leveling, tamping and lining machine on plain track.
The special features
  • Tilt able double tines and amplitude stabilization.
  • Universal lifting and lining unit with hooks and rollers.
  • Combined leveling and lining sighting device with optical viewfinder and remote control.
