Clip Driver CD400SP Delivered to Kennards Hire Rail in Australia
The first self-propelled Clip Driver CD400SP was delivered to Australia in June. The rental company Kennards Hire Rail with four depots for rail equipment is the owner of the new machines, which are prepared for all three Australian track gauges and the two major fastening systems Fastclip and e-clip. Rodney Andersson from Rosenqvist carried out the start-up and the training for the Kennards personnel at their depot in Rutherford, New South Wales.
Rosenqvist Clip Driver CD400 has a capacity to clip and unclip up to 40 sleepers per minute.
First Sleepers with Fastclip FE Now Installed in Sweden
During 2017, Fastclip FE was chosen as the preferred fastening for Trafikverket’s 20-year framework agreement with Swedish producers of concrete sleepers. The first sleepers have now been installed in track. The Rosenqvist Clip Driver CD400 was used for track renewal work in Söderhamn. The machine has a capacity to clip and unclip up to 40 sleepers per minute.
Since May this year Pandrol has represented Vortok in Sweden. Vortok has a wide range of products that are already used daily by Swedish machine entrepreneurs. Vortok´s stressing rollers are one among other products currently used at a destressing project in the area of Söderham, Sweden. The rollers are easily installed onto the rail shoulder and are easy to disassemble. The rollers are available for both e-clips, Fastclip FC and Fastclip FE.
Clip Driver CD200 was recently used in a project in Chicago on the Union Pacific line.
Union Pacific is changing out rail, pads, insulators and Fastclips on three tracks not far from Union Station. The CD200 machine has the capacity to change up to 20 sleepers per minute.
RRT Road Rail Trailer for Distribution of Ballast in Track
The new Rosenqvist trailer RRT is currently being used by the contractor Markus Naessen Entreprenad for transport and distribution of ballast on track. The same machine can now be used for transport and distribution of ballast and the sweeping of the track.
Our small, yet efficient Clip Driver CD100 was on display at the Rail Live exhibition at Stratford-upon-Avon in England. CD100 clips and unclips Pandrol Fastclip and can be transported in the boot of a car. The CD100 replaces handtools for smaller maintenance jobs and thereby eliminates hard labour and the the risk for slip injuries.
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.
