Rosenqvist Rail in association with Speedy hire are pleased to announce their recent success at the Rail Live 2016 Awards. The CD400 SP was awarded the Best Small Plant Innovation. Steve Featherstone (Track Programme Director, Network Rail) presented the awards alongside other industry figures. All of the nominees were selected by Network Rail using a weighted scoring system to select the winner.
“We have combined our long experience of clipping tools with new technology available and the result is this high capacity, robust clipping machine. We would like to give a special thank you to Speedy Services who saw this machine, liked it and has made it a signature product in their fleet,” Erika Berg.
The award-winning CD400SP is a clipping machine for Pandrol Fastclip and e-clip and the machine received Product acceptance by Network Rail last year. CD400SP is self-propelled with a reliable Diesel engine, and easy for a single operator to operate via a control panel. From the handheld control panel, the operator controls the functions of the CD400SP e.g. speed, clipping and declipping. The CD400SP has an automatic system, using inductive sensors to identify the next sleepers and automatically trigger the clipping operation. The capacity is up to 30 sleepers/minute for Fastclip on a destressing job. The CD400SP replaces the old Pandrol MarkIV machines, which are now becoming obsolete.
