Whether you want to build a turnkey factory on a greenfield site, increase your plant's capacity, retrofit an existing plant or replace individual components, P-TEC has the right solution for you.
P-TEC has a wide range of plant concepts to ensure ideal adaptability to market requirements. Sleeper design, product variety, quality of the aggregate (primarily cement), and the required daily output are the key parameters when choosing the best and most efficient production process. At P-TEC, customers get the most viable solution for their specific location.
Besides our own manufacturing processes DSA and DSR, we are able to use all current and tried and tested plant systems to find the best and most cost-efficient solution for each individual location.
Our plant systems:
Based on a wealth of comprehensive and ever-growing experience in sleeper manufacturing gained over the past 40 years, P-TEC continues to develop tried and tested manufacturing methods. Together with independent testing bodies and internationally renowned universities, our engineers systematically apply new findings from research into sleeper technology and innovative approaches to solutions.
Our plant systems are suitable for the efficient production of high-quality standard rail, turnout, heavy load and special sleepers, including slab tracks.
P-TEC is your one-stop-shop for consulting, planning, delivery, commissioning, and assistance during sleeper production.
P-TEC plans and implements manufacturing facilities from start to finish, starting with concept studies right through to turnkey handover of the production plant. Our professional project management and systematic approach guarantees successful implementation of the plant concept we develop for you.
We believe it is not the plant that determines the location, but the location that determines the plant. That’s why we tailor all of the plant components to the individual needs of each customer. P-TEC plants can adapt perfectly to the resources available on site, guaranteeing maximum availability and efficiency.
You can expand the capacity of your plant with further stages of automation starting with a manageable initial investment. The modular nature of the production systems keeps planning and implementation time to a minimum.
The individual plant modules are perfectly coordinated, right through from the mixing system to the quality assurance and warehouse logistics of the final product. We install your plant on site and help your employees with a comprehensive training programme. On request, P-TEC will also continue to offer support even beyond commissioning, laying the groundwork for success that you can count on.
An example of how we manufacture a turnkey sleeper plant:
Well-thought-out, professional planning from the outset is crucial to your company’s success. What you need is a sustainable, holistic approach to the complex relationships and customer requirements. Based on years of project and customer experience, we at P-TEC have developed a concept planning and implementation process that guarantees high quality and has proven its value in the field. This process has four stages:
First contact or customer request/drafting the requirement profile based on project-related conditions or a tender/inventory of the existing customer resources and country-specific conditions.
Preparation of a budget quotation to estimate the investment needed/on-site consultation/presentation or workshop on advantages and disadvantages of the various manufacturing methods taking the available resources and customer requirements into account. Analysis of the available aggregates
In this stage we determine the most efficient manufacturing method and develop a binding concept, create a manufacturing layout, the sleeper designs and all of the planning documentation required, e.g. plant and foundation blueprints, etc.
We deliver and install the manufacturing facility, train the operating staff, deliver material to produce the prototype, start up production and support you throughout ongoing production processes.
As an innovative company with a long tradition and a wealth of experience, we offer our comprehensive expertise to our customers. Our flexibility and technical expertise guarantee the success of your project. We'll help you achieve all of your goals fast.
Over 220 million rail sleepers have come off DYWIDAG and P-TEC production lines and are now in use on railway networks in Germany, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, Greece, Portugal, Turkey, Macedonia, Serbia, Mauritania, Egypt, Pakistan, Venezuela and Malaysia.
