At thyssenkrupp we can supply you with complete wagon unloading stations ranging from single to quadruple dumpers, and including all necessary additional equipment, such as positioners (aka indexers, side arm chargers), hopper (aka bins), hopper discharge feeders, milling machines, wheel clamps, and transfer platforms for the emptied wagons.
