Our shunting systems, acting directly on the wheelset, provide the concepts for optimum solutions

For automated shunting procedures.

Our shunting systems, acting directly on the wheelset, provide the concepts for optimum solutions wherever the movements of wagons or trains need to be automated. The train formation systems in shunting yards such as Maschen, Rotterdam-Kijfhoek and St. Petersburg-Luzhskaja are good examples, as well as transport and positioning systems in train washing facilities, industrial tracks and railway depots, both at home and abroad. Our company has more than 1,000 systems in operation and more than 50 years of expertise in this field.

Supplemented by the products of our other business units and by the ability to build our own control systems, we are in a position to implement complete solutions for almost all shunting problems.
The benefits for the users are:

  • Economic efficiency

Operating costs for the deployment and maintenance of shunting locomotives are reduced. Cargo damage caused by shunting operations is avoided.

  • Occupational safety

Dangerous work in the track area is considerably reduced by automation.

  • Performance

Turnaround times are shortened by the constant availability of the systems. When compared to locomotive shunting.

  • Environmental compatibility

Pollutant emissions from locomotive shunting are reduced. Operating noise is minimized by means of controlled workflow.

  • Profile freedom

The plants can be driven over in both directions by arrangement below the standard clearance profile.
