Maintenance and lifting equipment for Rail
Mobile lifting jacks with fixed claws
Lifting columns with fixed claws are entirely mobile and are therefore placed under the vehicle before each use. They are perfectly suited for the lifting of numerous vehicles, are multipurpose and benefit from maneuverability. This solution is perfect for operations needing a lifting capacity up to 82,000 lbs per column.
Mobile lifting jacks with extendable claws
Mobile lifting columns with retractable / extendable claws are suited for the lifting of complete trains. Synchronizations up to 36 jacks are feasible, making possible to lift a complete train with an iso-leveling tolerance of +/- 0.2 inch for an installation of 1,300 feet. These columns are also designed to be moved laterally on rails, either manually or motorized. In the same way, claws can be moved either electronically or manually.
Pit jacks are used for lifting up tramway cars by the bogies for accessibility of the axles for maintenance and adjustment of the car body.
Pits’ mobile lifts
Pits' mobile lifts are used to lift up a tramway by the bogies, making the axles free.
With a 13,200, 15,500 or 17,600 lbs lifting capacity, platform lifts (lifting tables) can be used to support, to lift up/down, and to move horizontally/laterally a bogie during maintenance operations.
