Robel Bahnbaumaschinen GmbH

Germany: Robel to Showcase New Products at Innotrans

At the 10th Innotrans trade show Sept. 23-26 in Berlin, Robel will focus on its hand-operated machines and equipment.

Firstly, Robel will introduce the 62.05 Vertical Tamper series to the international trade visitors, and secondly, the company will present its innovative battery powered series which achieves time savings of up to 25 percent.

Whether it be the challenges of the place of deployment, the condition of the ballast bed or the power supply available on the worksite – Robel has the appropriate vertical tamper. In the course of rectifying running surface level errors the 62.05 Vertical Tamper enables for ballast to flow underneath the sleeper and then compacts it optimally. Thanks to this non-destructive interlocking the ballast retains its stabilising properties and at the same time the sleeper is prevented from damage.

The complete 62.05 Vertical Tamper series has patented vibration decoupling on two levels which enables the operator to work comfortably and ergonomically due to the low hand-arm vibration.

All Robel vertical tampers are equipped with a newly developed tamping tool. If necessary, the operator can replace it easily and quickly on site.

The customer can choose between a petrol engine and an electric motor. The electric motor version is optimised with regard to noise and is maintenance- and emission-free. The powerful model with a 2-stroke engine works impressively in heavy maintenance tasks and on large work sites. On the petrol version the exhaust gas is conducted downward, away from the operator, and thus provides comfortable handling.

The use of the 62.05 Vertical Tamper „Light“ is ideally suited when working only on selected sleepers. Its low weight of 18.85 kg makes transport to the work site and working easier for the operator whilst providing nearly the same power.

Short drilling and wrenching times as well as high availability of the equipment deployed are crucial for efficient work on the track. The modular battery powered series of equipment is ideally suited for working in tunnels, underground and, due to its low noise emissions, in urban environments.
