The Desec Tracklayer TL 70 turnout replacement machine is a lifting and relaying system for turnout components controlled remotely by radio. The machine can move in all directions supported by its four rubber-coated crawlers.
The machine removes the old turnout and lifts a new one to its place, either from a turnout transport wagon or from track side, moves it to the installation site and lays it accurately in the correct position. During lifts and transfers, the machine keeps the turnout components level, supported against its frame, thus preventing twists and deformations.
The maximum lifting capacity is 42 tonnes and the maximum length for the load is 36 metres.
