Raptor Rail Handling System
Available from Loram Maintenance of Way, Inc.
The Loram long rail pick-up and delivery system consists of: twin independent gantry cranes with telescoping booms, 3-car work unit, with rail joining workstations and integrated power cars and high-capacity rail transport trains. The Raptor can grasp and load any rail segment located within 12 feet of the track centerline and four feet below top of rail. This elminates the need for a separate set-up crew. Each gantry is equipped with 20,000 lbs. of tractive effort to pull many rail lengths onto the train without assistance. Working with the integrated power cars, this allows the Loram system to load right and left rail independently.
