Remarks & Notes 
The Universal Tamper 4.0 is a so-called railway track tamping machine, designed for maintaining railway tracks. This means it measures and corrects the track geometry and fixes the railway track on ballast beds. The full hydraulic tamping unit, which is the technical heart of the machine, is an integral part of a massive frame which gives the Universal Tamper 4.0 its technical yet sleek appearance. The whole body was designed to fulfil the needs of sheet-metal manufacturing processes. Bending metal is somehow similar to folding paper, so the designers came up with the name “sheet origami” to describe the innovative appearance. System7 Rail Support gewinnt iF Design Award 2019.
