Dual e-Clip Applicator/Remover

The Racine Dual e-Clip Applicator/Remover is a dual workhead machine designed to apply either (4) pre-set clips (both rails) or (2) pre-set clips (either rail), or remove e-Clips (one or two rails) with one operator in a fully enclosed HVAC equipped cab.

Now Applies and REMOVES Clips!
New workhead design allows the workhead to now remove clips with a simple tooling change, a great labor saver for de-stressing operations.

The machine is based off the Racine GEN4 platform, which has the ability to accept several different workhead configurations (sold separately):

  • DAA - To squeeze anchors
  • DAS - Tie-out spreader
  • DASP - Can squeeze or spread (tie-in or tie-out) with quick tooling changes
  • ECAR - To apply or remove e-Clips

Excellent Visibility = Higher Production
The machine offers excellent operator visibility of the work zone, with the ability to see upcoming ties that need to be worked without overshooting them, increasing productivity and reducing wear on the machine travel components. The machine also has excellent un-obstructed operator visibility fore and aft when track traveling.

Faster Cycle Times
Programmable MD4 controlled automation has significantly faster cycle times than previous Racine machines while lessening operator fatigue.

The machine utilizes two joysticks to control each workhead independently through the machine’s MD4 control module in manual mode. The MD4 control system can also be utilized to help troubleshoot machine maintenance issues.

Innovative Technology for Easy Maintenance

  • Advance load-sense pump controls allow for NON-DEF engine power (no DPF regen cycles), saving costs and more environmentally friendly.
  • Easy touchscreen controls with workhead adjustments from the operator seat, saving time and offering a safer way to make machine adjustments.
  • Onboard electrical system diagnostics to simplify troubleshooting and lessen downtime.
  • Remote program updates and remote troubleshooting with built-in telematics allow our technicians to help troubleshoot and lessen downtime (within cell range).
  • Smart hydraulic valves with self-diagnostics and maintenance screens increase flexibility, reliability, and reduces parts inventory by using the same control valve for every function.
