Manual point machine of 40 series in grooved-rail points
Manual point machine of 40 series suitable for all point types, point openings and gauges

Point Machines of the 40 Series

At many places in the line network - e. g. trailed or faced points which are seldom set - the manual point machine is the most economic solution.

Manual point machines supplied by HANNING & KAHL convince users by their optimum cost/benefit ratio:

  • Robust and durable technology
  • short design
  • desired setting to spring-back or throwover function with same components possible on site,
  • suitable for most point types, openings and gauges,
  • manual setting possible with low force requirement with one stroke purely mechanically,
  • redundant, progressively adjustable spring assembly for safe position of point tongues,
  • end-position damping to reduce noise,
  • can be adapted in earthcases of other makes.
