Shunting Equipment

Schaltbau Pintsch Tiefenbach supplies hauling and shunting equipment that automates train marshalling, handling and loading processes.

Cable-operated shunting cars are used, which are attached to the wheelsets of the various railcars in order to transport, decelerate and position them as required. The cable units are driven by base stations that are controlled by state-of-the-art frequency converter technology. The main field of application for this technology is the high-performance train marshalling systems operated by Deutsche Bahn AG (German Railways) and other railway companies, but it is also used in automated loading systems in the industrial and mining sectors as well as for train washing systems.
