International Exhibition for Track Technology (iaf)

31 May - 2 June 2022
Münster, Germany

All things track construction in one place: more than 200 exhibitors from 20 countries, thousands of inspired visitors, fascinating seminars held in the iaf salon, VDEI Career Point and, last but certainly not least, 40 impressive yellow track maintenance machines and 40 road-rail vehicles on the outdoor exhibition grounds of the Fair and Congress Centre Halle Münsterland: that was the iaf 2017 in a nutshell.

The next edition of iaf, the 28th International Exhibition for Track Technology will be held in Münster from 31 May to 2 June 2022.

The production line for new tracks

Track renewal machines such as the SVB 800 ME are the all-in-one solution for getting an old track back into shape.

The machine combines three major track rehabilitation measures into a single working pass: a complete track renewal, integrated ballast-bed cleaning including a supply of new ballast, and an integrated layer-by-layer consolidation. A state-of-the-art Worksite Command Centre controls all processes. This new combination offers technological, logistic, and, above all, economic advantages.

The SVB 800 ME was built for the French construction consortium ETF/Meccoli/Eiffage - now called Enorail - at Plasser & Theurer in late summer 2019. It successfully completed a testing period in autumn, and has been working in France since the beginning of 2020.

We will continue to follow up on the SVB 800 ME and will keep you updated.

A new take on Machine, Fleet, and Infrastructure

Cost-efficiency remains the main goal of mechanised track construction. However, sustainability, digitalisation, and life-long support for machines and customers have been shaping daily work routines more and more. We are taking a proactive approach to this change.

Machines offering complete system solutions for track construction and maintenance are among Plasser & Theurer's signature products. Having laid the basis for the company's position as technology leader, they will continue to be an important focus.

We are now expanding our range of products and services using the strategy “Machine – Fleet – Infrastructure.” Innovative technologies and a global service strategy are key to our approach.

Quintessential quiet

Quiet rails reduce the noise a train makes when it rolls away. This improves the quality of life for lineside residents.

We offer a new method of rail care that stays true to timetables, specially designed for urban track surroundings. The benefits for infrastructure are twofold: longer service life and, at the same time, less track possessions.
