What components does ROREXS Rail Train consist of?

RAIL MANIPULATOR

  • is used for loading and unloading rails onto/from the transport unit
  • has a separate hydrostatic drive
  • secures the rails against tilting with the rail clamps.

 

TWO-SIDED CHUTE WAGON UNIT

  • guides rails to/from the transport unit during loading and unloading
  • consists of a wagon with a bogie or with a single axle
  • loading and unloading is via the two side chutes at the sleeper heads or via the centre chutes at the centre of track
  • has a turning device for the rail manipulator.

 

TWO-SIDED TRANSPORT UNIT

  • stores rails safely during transport
  • has roller banks at defined spacing
  • has clamping racks on both ends to secure the rails
  • allows for length compensation for the crane rails when travelling in curves
  • secures rails with parallel walls at both ends.

What lengths of rail can be transported with the ROREXS?

The system transports and manipulates

  • a maximum of 50 rails
  • with a weight of up to 70 kg/m and
  • a length of up to 500 metres.

What are the minimum radii of action during loading and unloading?

The universal roller heads of the ROREXS prevent the rail from tilting during loading and unloading in radii of action of 180 metres minimum.

What is the loading performance of the ROREXS?

ROREXS can unload approx. 2,700 metres of rail per hour, within the stress and bending limits. Per rail pair of 180 metres ROREXS takes approx. 4 minutes for loading and approx. 2 minutes for unloading.

How many operators are required for the ROREXS?

The whole loading and transport process requires four operators, unloading can be done by one operator.

The optionally available automated rail clamping and roller banks reduce the amount of manual work on the transport device to a minimum and at the same time increase work safety.
