Tamping Machines: Introduction

  • Tamping machines also known as ballast tamper, is a heavy machinery used in the packing and tamping of track ballasts under railway tracks for making it more durable.
  • Tamping machines make the task faster, easier, more accurate, efficient, and less labor intensive as compared to manual processes with the help of beaters. Thus, tamping machines have now become an essential part of rail maintenance & construction.
  • Tamping machines help lower maintenance costs, protect hardware, increase efficiency, decrease down time, and increase performance of railway tracks.
  • Tamping machines are of three types: straight track tamping machines, points and crossing tamping machines, and multi-purpose tamping machines.
  • The global tamping machines market is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to the increase in demand for these devices from railways.
