Rail Vehicles and Shunting engines

Track tractors and cable shunting devices are designed for precise movement and the establishment of wagons and tanks trailers in the railway industry.

Benefits

a significant reduction of investment and operating costs compared to conventional diesel locomotives
By comparing the cost of Arrow line equipment, as and the cost of acquisition or lease of the locomotive and its operation (the cost of a shunting squad, operating charges, revision and examinations). From Economic Analysis of the use of Arrow line facilities, it shows that the cost of acquisition shall be returned within 2 years.
very easy to use (1 person) and safe while operating
A Trained person with shifter qualifications is provided with remote control from a remote place safely and comfortably throughout the move of sets, and individual cars. Some devices offer automatic coupling to eliminate the need for operator movement between the bumpers and enhancing the security of Merger and disconnection sets.
the possibility of full automation of the system
using computers and the corresponding number of different sensors.
large variability and adaptability in the deployment of the various parts of the system
is made possible thanks to the construction of our facilities (e.g. the deployment of reversible drive stations according to local conditions). Each item of equipment is made exactly to size and to customer requirements.
