What do I need a vibration tamper for?
To produce a stable track bed in less than 2 minutes per sleeper.
Unresolved track bed problems will rapidly and significantly increase the costs of infrastructure and profile maintenance:
The track bed needs to be levelled (tamped) when the track bed fault exceeds the specified difference from the set-point position. During the tamping process the track is lifted, this produces a cavity. Compacting the ballast at specific points is the standard method of levelling out elevations and removing cavities under the sleeper: tamping to compact the ballast stabilises the track and prevents excessive wear of all track components and track-bound vehicles.
Where can I use the Vertical Tamper?
How do I reach best tamping results?
Tamping as such is done quickly. Under real-life conditions, the time per sleeper has been found to be less than 2 minutes. We know from experience, though, the operators along the track will take even less time once they have become familiar with how the vibrating vertical tamper works. After a first briefing, operators will about halve the time needed when using conventional units.
Which ROTAMP variants are available?
What makes vibration vertical tamping so innovative?
Vibrations let the ballast flow. The eccentric shaft of ROTAMP has been turned by 90°. An unbalanced mass revolving around the vertical machine axis sets off the required vibrations which is supported by a mild rotary motion of the tamping pick working itself into the ballast.
The oscillating motion distributes the energy of vibration across the entire tamping pick surface from where it goes into the surrounding ballast material.
This avoids energy peaks that might damage the ballast or the sleeper.
Efficiently filling up cavities largely depends on the tamping pick volume: ballast compaction results improve with the diameter.
How does the safety shutdown function work?
On-site operators may not always hear acoustic warning signals. In case of need, ROTAMP's safety shutdown reliably makes the operator aware of dangers such as approaching trains: the supervisor can stop up to 4 tampers at once by simply pressing a button. This is telling the operators to immediately exit the danger zone.
