Herzog: Automated Tie-Down Car® (ATC)


Herzog’s Automated Tie-Down Car® (ATC) secures CWR to most existing rail train configurations with more power, faster operation, and better remote access than conventional systems. The ATC can offer efficiencies never seen before in the rail unloading process, especially when paired with Herzog’s Rail Unloading Machine (RUM). Its hydraulic clamps can be controlled remotely from the comfort and safety of the RUM cab. Because the ATC can release any rail in any order on the train in just 5-10 seconds, work windows are significantly reduced and there is no time spent waiting for tie-down crews to manually clamp/unclamp rail.
