Squeezing Cylinder is an important part of Indigenized Multipurpose Tamping Machine. Indian Railways has been developing indigenized track tamping machines lately and the latest one being developed is indigenized multipurpose tamping machine. Analysis of failures in tamping unit shows that squeezing cylinder has major proportion in all reported failures. The present work addresses the problem of enhancing the life of squeezing cylinder by proposing En19 steel as new material. A squeezing cylinder is designed using Solid Works software and stress analysis is performed on ANSYS software using both the present material being used and the proposed materials i.e. En19 steel and a comparative study is then performed. The results show that the squeezing cylinder made of En19 steel gives better performance
