Faster clipping method
Herzog’s Clip Car was developed to clip ties safely, quickly, and efficiently. The machine fastens rails to ties during new track construction, rail changeout, and distressing projects.
Position plastic insulators
The rail is shifted using a guiding roller, allowing plastic insulators to be easily positioned on the outer sides of the rail.
The clips are fastened by a hydraulically-operated workhead that secures the clip into place. This method reduces the likelihood of rail clips getting misaligned.
Secure concrete ties
Concrete ties are automatically secured once insulators and steel clips have been properly placed by Herzog operators.
