A POS (Person of Safety) audit was carried out by Network Rail on the Rosenqvist clipping machine CD400SP owned and operated by Speedy Services in Scotland.
Safe and Efficient Stressing Operation With The Clipping Machine CD400SP
A POS (Person of Safety) audit was carried out by Network Rail on the Rosenqvist clipping machine CD400SP owned and operated by Speedy Services in Scotland last month. The audit concluded that the machine worked really well at a consistent and efficient speed. The Speedy Services operator Kevin Norry who is very experienced was both efficient and helpful during this night shift audit. The general condition of the asset along with the work lights were to a very high standard.
Auditor and on plant specialist Bryan Young at Network Rail commented: “I believe this is one of the quickest working machines I have witnessed removing Fastclip fastenings on the infrastructure, but I do believe this was helped with Kevin operating the machine. The machine did not skip a single clip throughout operation for the full length of the worksite.”
Network Rail made a safety decision to use a person of safety and machine controller when the CD400 was operating on the infrastructure, since this kept the machine/exclusions zone very clear and safe throughout the full operation.
Speedy Services operator Kevin Norry said that working with a MC (machine controller) allowed himself to concentrate on the job and getting the full efficiency out of the asset.
For Speedy Services the use of a CD400SP machine has resulted in an improved timescale to complete this type of stressing jobs compared to the conventional system using four walk-behind clipping machines with four operators.
“Using the CD400SP allows us to be more cost effective”, says Colin Wight at Speedy Services, who is responsible for introducing the Rosenqvist CD400SP clipping machines onto the UK rail network. Speedy Services in partnership with Babcock Rail now use the Rosenqvist CD400SP on a weekly basis.

New Height and Slew Limitation For Excavators
Pandrol AB and Østlandske MaskinService AS in Norge has delivered and fitted the new height and slew limitation system from GKD Technologies. GKD Technologies new, advanced Height and Slew limiter system combines the proven height limiting algorithms and precise slew position measurement to create one complete product.
The system can provide Height only, Slew only or Combined Height and Slew limiting through different configurations and licence options. The display shows the operator the current machine position (in metres and degrees), set limitation values and approach of limit values.
The system allows access to set of limit values and service areas. Machines with up to 4-piece booms can be supervised.
We design, develop and manufacture equipment to make constructing and maintaining railways more efficient. Our smart machinery increases productivity, reduces possession times and improves the safety of those working in the industry.
