Under Sleeper Pad Automatic Positioning WEGH PT-MF20

The continuous WEGH Group technological innovation has led to the development of an innovative system for the positioning of Under Sleeper Pads (USP) on railway sleepers, a patented solution.
The PT-MF20 automatic USP positioning machine, designed in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, is equipped with:

  • Automatic ID mould identification system (sleepers to be produced);
  • Independent clamps equipped with dedicated electric motors and vibrators;
  • Under-mould vibrating station;
  • Independent vacuum system (for each clamp) for pads suction;
  • Cycle time 33 seconds.

A distinctive feature of the Wegh PT-MF20 USP positioning machine is certainly the capability of each clamp to position Under Sleeper Pad, independently in each mould’s gang, modulating to the level of the concrete. This system allows the uniform positioning of the pads, laid in the sleepers at the same depth as indicated in the Regulation.
