Automated Guidance Computer (tmAGC)

We make the digitalization of track machines easy for machine manufacturers and operators.

When you embark on the journey of digitalizing your track machine fleet, the automatic guidance computer (tmAGC) is the first step. It is also the brainstem of every tamping machine.As a flexible, user-friendly bestseller, the tmAGC is already in its third generation and is currently in use in many countries around the world. Both hardware and software have been revised to accommodate the latest IT standards. Installation, upgrade, maintenance and operation have become even easier, more user-friendly and intuitive.

Product Details

The new automatic guidance computer is the gem of track geometry control. It can give precise instructions on how to operate the tamping machine worldwide, both with existing and unknown track geometry. On the main railway network or on high speed railway corridors, i.e. where the track position is usually known exactly, the target data, which varies from country to country, can be imported. The tmAGC will compute how the target status can be achieved again. On secondary railway lines or whenever the track position is unknown, the guidance computer can determine the actual status with a measurement run and thereby compute instructions for an optimal track position. The tmAGC is a central component for the execution of digital work orders and it communicates work parameters to the tamping machines that are then applied to the tamping unit.
