The Plasser Dynamic Track Stabilizer is designed to apply controlled, accurate stabilizing forces into the track structure at continuous speeds of up to 1 mph. All track is subject to settling due to traffic loads. This settling occurs irregularly and uncontrolled, resulting in track deterioration. Dynamic track stabilization is a combination of horizontal vibration and a vertical load.
The stabilizing unit is a well proven design developed in 1975 with more than 500 machines in regular use in 44 countries worldwide since 1978.
