Construction work on the railway involves shifting enormous quantities of material in a short time. Thousands of cubic metres of excavated material and new material have to be loaded into wagons and transported. Efficient material logistics have a decisive influence on the efficiency of the sequences, the duration of the construction work and ultimately on the cost-effectiveness of the projects.
Material conveyor and hopper units of the MFS series demonstrate how state-of-the-art material logistics function. Intervals between trains can be better utilised, sections of track can be reopened to traffic earlier and scheduled traffic can continue on the adjacent track. Therefore, material conveyor and hopper units can make an important contribution towards raising the overall annual outputs of ballast cleaning machines or formation rehabilitation machines.
