Clip Driver CD300 IQ

Clip Driver CD300 IQ is a high-production clipping machine designed to install Pandrol Fastclip FC and FE. Its low weight makes it suitable for use on smaller road-rail machines from 6 tonnes and upwards.

The intelligent control system monitors the operation of the machine and actively controls the clipping operation. The tools are based on proven technology used by Pandrol’s Clip Driver CD400, but the tools are folded up when not in use and thereby eliminate the risk of collision with joint bars and clips in the track.

Technical Features

  • Combines time-tested technology of the CD400 with a newly designed control system
  • Compatible with Pandrol Fastclip FC and FE
  • Folds up the tools when not in use to avoid collision with joint bars, shoulders, clips etc
  • Quick adjustment for various rail heights (UIC60/U50)


  • The intelligent and intuitive control system automatically adjusts the clipping speed to correlate with the speed of the carrier machine
  • The system also ensures that tools are not activated in the wrong work mode, preventing damage to the machine and surrounding infrastructure
  • Can be used on road-rail machines as light as 6 tonnes
  • Can be set to clip up only one rail at the time if required
