How does the wrenching program compare planned to actual values?
Comparison control loop:
1 – Within milliseconds, the force transducer checks by how much the screw has been tightened at any time of the wrenching process and
2 – transfers the reading to the PLC.
3 – The PLC recognises the wrenching case with reference to the gradients it stores.
4 – The spindle speed is accurately set to achieve the final torque.
How does ROWRENCH P4 Rec loosen corroded, seized screws?
When loosening screwed joints, the torque is dynamically and linearly increased to up to 880 Nm. This is not only preserving the machine mechanism but also applying a high loosening torque which reliably tears off rusty screws of older K-type track fastenings. A process stored in the PLC can be chosen from the menu to loosen screws seized in loose W-type track dowels.
May I also check screwed track sections?
Since the PLC controls the dynamic process of 30.73 PSM, you are now among the first to check the torque of previously tightened screws without having to completely unscrew them as had to be done hitherto. Again, all torques measured in the process are logged. This method is mainly intended to quickly show that the hardware in older tracks is still tight in conformity with regulations.
What is screwing directive Ril. 824.5050 about?
Directive Ril. 824.5050 published by Deutsche Bahn on how to produce uninterrupted tracks and on the bracing of rail fastenings aims for a reliable connection between rails and sleepers while minimising damage to the sleepers.
Pursuant to the Directive, a rail is correctly fastened if the set-point geometric bracing (gap size ≤ 0.5 mm) is achieved without exceeding the maximum permissible torque of 250 Nm.
Every hundredth sleeper (if fastened by a hydraulic power wrench) or every twentieth sleeper (if fastened by a mechanical power wrench) is to be checked by using a torque spanner. Conformity with the Directive has to be shown in writing.
The Directive also provides supportive arguments in case of conflicts. If there is a conflict about the cause of sleeper damage, the logging of wrenching processes supports the building contractor in its position against the client because an excessive torque can be ruled out as the cause of a cracked sleeper.
Does a screwed joint have to be checked for conformity with Ril. 824.5050?
No. ROWRENCH P4 Rec meets all standards set by DB Directive 824.5050. DB has therefore decided to exempt Robel's Precision Power Wrench from the otherwise compulsory verification of every hundredth or twentieth screw.
