Dear readers

Our presentation at the iaf 2017 is fully dedicated to “Innovation for you”. I am very pleased that we managed to finish both numerous innovations and further developments on time for our industry’s highlight in Münster. I wish to thank all members of staff for making this possible!

The new products and services offered have one purpose only: To help you meet the daily challenges in track laying and track maintenance. 

We introduce:

• Drive and work technologies used, for instance, on two machines of the E³ series: the hybrid Unimat 09-4x4/4S E³ and the HTW 100 E³ hybrid motor tower car fitted with trendsetting battery technology.

• Our after-sales service is fully dedicated to your machine: “We care about your machine.” We support the machines during their entire service lives. For this purpose, we offer two new tools: Our SmartCatalog allows spare parts for your machines to be ordered faster and more precisely. It can be used to order parts for machines built as of 2006. In addition, we have further revised our offer* for the overhaul of work units providing you with the PlasserMachineMaintenanceGuide. This tool provides fast assistance in the high-quality maintenance of your tamping units.

• “Design follows function” – the new cabin design allows us to meet future standards and regulations regarding operational safety and the protection of staff. 

This is just a small selection of our trade fair highlights. Let us surprise you and show you more about “Innovation for you” on the following pages. 

I wish you happy reading.

Yours

Johannes Max-Theurer

Chief Executive Officer, Plasser & Theurer
