The DGS 62 N directs the horizontal vibrations into the ballast bed and thereby reduces the number of hollow spaces within the ballast.

The DGS 62 N creates a more stable ballast bed that can be used at top line speed.

DGS 62 N

Harmonising the vertical and the horizontal

Optimum anchoring of the tracks in the ballast bed – this is the goal that the dynamic track stabiliser DGS 62 N follows and achieves. This four-axle machine uses an innovative technology that directs the horizontal vibrations into the ballast bed thereby bringing the ballast stones closer together with several contact surfaces. This reduces the number and size of the hollow spaces to create an homogenous ballast structure.

The vertical load that is exerted at the same time causes the tracks to be lowered into the stable ballast bed due to the interaction of the forces.

Less space, more safety

The dynamic track stabiliser DGS 62 N has become an institution in the field of track bed stabilisation. It enables tracks moved directly after they have been installed or processed at the maximum line speed, because the procedure guarantees a high level of operating safety. This is due to the fact that the ballast is compacted and also that the contact surfaces between the sleepers and ballast stones are increased. This greater friction surface causes a larger lateral displacement both for the loaded as well as for the unloaded track. As a result, the risk of track distortion is reduced.

The benefits at a glance

  • Sustainable track maintenance
  • Spatial compacting of the ballast bed
  • Increase of the cross and longitudinal displacement resistance
  • Reduced costs thanks to maintenance and malfunctions
  • No impairment of the track geometry
  • Direct control of all relevant measuring data

The dynamic track stabiliser DGS 62 N merges two aspects of track construction that are particularly important for us at Wiebe Group: making effective use of track possessions and creating high-performance track systems.

Thanks to the direct recording and measurement of all safety-relevant data, no further work steps are necessary, making the track immediately ready for use even at the line-specific top speed. This therefore reduces speed restricted areas and rail traffic can run as it should.
