PALFINGER PRODUCTS – RAILWAY SYSTEMS

Not only the famous loader crane is part of PALFINGER’s product portfolio. About two weeks ago we introduced you to EPSILON timber- and recycling cranes and now we would like to present another product range to you: This time we will focus on railway systems.

The wide range of innovative railway systems became part of the product portfolio in 1988. Since then PALFINGER is known to be the international market leader in the segment of high-tech railway systems. PALFINGER offers more than 60 models.

Characteristics of PALFINGER railway systems

Railway systems ensure the maintenance of the railway network. Particularly, railway systems consist of several products such as access platforms, special cranes or overhead wire positioners (check pictures below), which are used to build and repair track installations and catenary systems. To guarantee highest efficiency, it is possible to combine these products. Let’s take the overhead line construction and maintenance as an example: An access platform is used to reach all work positions in an easy, fast and safe way. Simultaneously, the positioner can be controlled from the access platform. The overhead wires are very taut. Therefore, it is important to exactly position them and constantly hold them on the same position when it is necessary to work on the wire brackets. With the help of the positioner it is possible to release the suspension point of the overhead wire and supporting cable as well as insulators and booms can be maintained easily. Furthermore, a crane can also be used in order to exchange heavy components such as overhead line masts. This combination allows highest efficiency.

PALFINGER cooperates closely with the vehicle manufacturers to ensure that the units such as access platform or crane are optimally harmonized. In that way, it is possible to retain important vehicle characteristics.

In the field of innovation PALFINGER is known as a pioneer. Several developments guarantee the provision of highest efficiency. For instance on the display of the control stand and on the remote control of Paltronic 150 controlled units, the following is displayed:  status of the stability, utilization of lifting capacity, basket loading and other safety functions including Adjacent Track Limitation, Height Limiter and permission for creep speed.

In order to extend the lifecycle of the products there is the option to do a general overhaul at the plant. This means that PALFINGER checks the used products, replaces wear parts and upgrades the machines to the latest standards. In that way it can be assured to retain the vehicle’s registration and the user does not have to get used to a new product and its handling.

The components are produced in PALFINGER owned factories in Tenevo and Cherven Brjag, Bulgaria as well as in Maribor, Slovenia. Mounting is being done in the Austrian plant in Köstendorf.

PALFINGER railway systems are sold globally. The markets China, Europe and CIS show potential for growth.
