JCB Compactors – Stronger base for Indian Railwaysby Pradeep J. Pradeep J
Among the world’s largest rail networks, the Indian Railways is spread over 115,000 km. With almost 12,617 passenger trains and 7,421 freight trains each day from 7,349 stations plying 23 million travelers and 3 million tonnes (MT) of freight daily, India's railway network is recognised as one of the largest railway systems in the world under single management.
According to Mr Piyush Goyal, Union Minister for Railways and Coal, Indian Railways can generate one million jobs. Indian Railways is also targeting to increase its freight traffic to 3.3 billion tonnes by 2030.
Remarkable! Isn’t it?
India is developing at an extremely fast pace with the ongoing economic reforms, political altercations, constant rise in the industrial growth and more. This leads to the demand of a constant and strong transport system to sustain the rigorous back and forth of people, commodities and resources. The Government of India has been right now focusing on investing on making investor-friendly policies to further railway infrastructure of the nation.
Few recent initiatives taken up by the Government include considering High Speed Rail Corridor projects, coming out with new export policies for railways, formulating a ‘National Rail Plan’ to enable the country to integrate its rail network with other modes of transport and develop a multi-modal transportation network. For a strong railways network, defined tracks and strong platforms come into picture automatically. It’s important to have full-fledged platforms and detailed tracks to avoid any ambiguity or prevent any mishap. Choosing the right manpower, raw material and best-in-class machines are the key primary steps that we need to take to strengthen our railways.
Under-compaction of surfaces is one of the major reasons that leads to deteriorating conditions of tracks as well as platforms, resulting in unfortunate incidences. Intelligent Compacting solutions are the right way to fix this.
Offering better output and more compaction per pass, the JCB116 is a single drum vibratory soil compactor that comes with an in-built Compaction Management System. Known as Intelli-Compaction, this is an industry-first feature in India that relays a real-time data about surface condition, over compaction alerts, exact number of passes required for correct density and more. By displaying all the critical machine’s health alerts, this machine leads to a better process control and stronger, better foundations.
In addition to this, the range of Compactors by JCB promise an unmatched operator comfort, innovative features, best-in-class aesthetics, ease of serviceability and less maintenance cost.
Apart from Single Drum Vibratory Rollers, JCB has a range of Vibratory Tandem Rollers also.
Weighing between 1680 and 8750 kg, these Compactors are developed for reliability, low cost of operation, operation safety, and serviceability.
JCB VMT 330 is best suited for retaining the walls of flyovers, footpaths, trenches, service roads, industrial and residential columns, rural roads etc. And, VMT860 is equally functional and superior on bitumen compaction.
Go ahead and expect more from the range of JCB Compactors.
