A NEW ERA IN HYDRAULIC TAMPING
System 7s hydraulic tamping system is revolutionising the rail infrastructure industry, with improved machine reliability, reduced maintenance costs and a significant noise reduction.
System 7s Hydraulic Tamping System
System 7s hydraulic tamping drive is the world’s first and only fully hydraulic workhead. Comprised of specially designed cylinders and valve assemblies, the new system replaces the rotating parts and bearing assemblies of conventional tamping drives.
By eliminating the large amount of moving parts associated with eccentric drives, the new hydraulic system results in:
Pressure Controlled Tamping
The tamping drive continually measures the hardness of the ballast and adjusts the frequency to ensure optimum insertion and reduced wear onthe machine frame.
The system will stop tamping when the required compaction has been achieved to:
No Vibration in the Upper Position
The lack of vibration in the upper position results in:
Continually Adjustable Frequency
The hydraulic subsystem adjusts the frequency for ease of ballast penetration by calculating the optimum frequency for ballast conditions.
Once in the ballast and ready to tamp the frequency will always revert to35Hz for the tamping cycle.
Variable Opening Width and Adjustable Amplitude
The system features an adjustable and wider opening width of the tamping arms, dependent on ballast conditions to minimise unnecessary displacement of ballast.
SPECIALLY DESIGNED CYLINDER AND VALVE ASSEMBLY
The replacement of the traditional squeeze cylinders with a specially designed cylinder and valve assembly creates the ability to automatically adjust:
