Point Machines of the 42 Series

Simple solutions suffice to set points at many places in the line network. The manual point machine is the most pragmatic and the most economically-efficient solution for points which are trailed and also for faced points which are seldom set. HANNING & KAHL has spurred on technological developments also for these applications – and offers manual point machines in innovative, reliable design.

Manual point machines made by HANNING & KAHL have proven themselves worldwide. The manual point machine HWU42 convinces by optimum cost/benefit ratio, as a result of the following advantages:

  • Spring-back or throwover function? Simply set with the same components on site
  • For all point types, gauges and point openings up to 60 mm
  • Manual setting with low force requirement with just one stroke
  • Progressively adjustable spring force for securing point tongues in their end positions
  • Progressively adjustable damping means noise reduction and wear protection
  • Can be adapted in earthcases of other makes and in earthcase of the HANNING & KAHL 41, 60 and 61 series
  • Can be equipped (option) with FADIS route-diagnosis system for condition-based  maintenance
