High-quality tamping tools enable higher production outputs and reduce the operating costs of a tamping machine. A new design of the tamping tool allows for a significant cost-effective utilization.
The cost-efficiency of a tamping tool can be measured by the number of tamping cycles. The goal must always be a greater number of tamping cycles and longer intervals between replacements.
In this respect, the OEM tamping tools offered by Plasser American have already set the benchmark. Two decisive factors have made a substantial difference. First, the tool is produced as a monobloc component that is forged in one piece. Second, the tungsten-carbide armor for all surfaces that come into contact with the ballast are subjected to extreme wear.
