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 suitable for the lifting up of numerous vehicles, are multipurpose and benefit from a real manoeuvrability. This solution is perfect for operations needing a lifting capacity up to 37.5 tons per column.
Mobile lifting jacks with extendable claws
Mobile lifting columns with retractable / extendable claws are more suitable for the lifting up of complete trains. Synchronizations up to 36 jacks are feasible, making possible to lift up a complete train with an isoniveling tolerance of +/- 5 mm for an installation of 400 m. These columns are also designed to be moved laterally on rails, either manually or in a motorized way. In the same way, claws can be moved either electronically or manually.
Pit jacks are used for lifting up tramways by the bogies, making the axles free. They enable thus to realize adjusment of bodies.
Pits’ mobile lifts
Pits' mobile lifts are used to lift up a tramway by the bogies, making the axles free.
With a 6, 7 or 8 tons lifting capacity, platform lifts (so called lifting tables) have to be used to support, to lift up, to lift down and to move horizontally and laterally a bogie during maintenance operations.
