The Auto Master enables clipping to take place automatically, as part of a seamless process. With six to eight fewer people required on track to perform the operation, the machine has a major impact on site safety.
The Auto Master is extremely easy to use, enabling new sleepers to be clipped onto the rail at the press of a button.
With an hourly capacity of approximately 20 to 30 sleepers, the machine improves the rate of operation.
The Auto Master is a cost-effective option because it minimises the number of people needed for clipping during re-sleeper operations.
As a result, it also increases site safety by reducing the number of people on track.
The Auto Master instals clips automatically, controlled by the machine’s operator from the cab of the carrier machine. New sleepers are clipped onto the rail at the press of a button.
The Auto Master can clip approximately 20 to 30 sleepers an hour.
The machine can be adjusted to accommodate a range of different clip assemblies, including Fastclip FC and FE, and Safelok I and III.
The machine is hydraulic and requires no extra power from the carrier machine.
The Auto Master is available as an attachment for the Sleeper Replacer SB40 (the unit weighs 220kg) and for the SB60 (weighs 260kg).
