Manual point machine of the 160 series installed in a grooved-rail point

Point Machines of the 160 Series

The manual point machines for installation in flat-bottom and deep-bed points offer flexible deployment possibilities. Installation is possible beside or between the tracks. As with all manual point machines supplied by HANNING & KAHL, throw-over and spring-back function are possible at all times without replacing components. The point can be set manually with just one stroke of a setting lever - without cranking or pumping.

Characteristic features of the 160 series

  • Suitable for different point types, point openings and gauges,
  • Redundant, progressively adjustable spring force for safe position of point tongues,
  • End-position damping for noise reduction
