Progress performance



The Plasser 09-16 DYNACAT is a heavy-duty, high speed, continuous action switch and production track tamping machine with an integrated dynamic track stabilizer. Tamping and lifting units are mounted on a separate satellite frame that is attached to the main frame. While the satellite indexes from tie to tie during the actual work process (lifting, lining, crossleveling, and tamping), the machine’s main frame with stabilizer system moves smoothly and continuously. The operator’s cabin, power unit, main hydraulic components, electronic systems, etc., are installed on the main frame.

The machine is standard equipped with fully automatic, computer controlled (AGGS) lifting, leveling and lining systems. Dynamic track stabilization provides controlled, accurate track settling with the aid of a reference system. In contrast to rail traffic which settles track in an irregular fashion, dynamic track stabilization consolidates ballast together more densely and more uniformly, thus reducing specific compression stress. Subsequent settlements are marginal and a more geometrical exact structure is produced with considerably higher vertical and horizontal stability.
