The product range designed for road going vehicles is the result of nearly 45 years research and development.
As a specialist manufacturer of vehicle hoisting, SEFAC offers a large variety of equipment that can be used around your vehicle lifts. This range includes stands and trestles but also transmission jacks, hydraulic wheel dollies and cleaning equipment.
From bus lifting solutions to vehicle stands, all SEFAC products are dedicated to heavy duty workshops. Our R&D Department is working hard to make lifting for vehicles easier. Some products, like the S3 mobile column lifts, are thus a concentrate of technology and have been the origin of numerous patents.
Maintenance and lifting equipment for Heavy Duty vehicles
Mobile column lifts for standard vehicles
SEFAC offers a large choice of mobile columns to lift the most common vehicles of your fleet. These columns differ by their lifting capacities as well as by their technologies. Column lifts for standard vehicles are the most flexible solution SEFAC mobile column lifts are the ideal solution for truck workshops and heavy duty lifting. They offer more flexibility and security in the workplace. Moreover, physical stresses are reduced to the minimum for the technician. Mobile column lifts are more efficient and less expensive compared to traditional pits and heavy duty hydraulic scissor lifts. Heavy duty column lifts are versatile and flexible in the workshop. HGV support stands allow the use of mobile column lifts on another vehicle and thus double your heavy duty lifting capacity. After the use, column lifts can be positioned in a corner. Thus the workshop area is free. Wired or wireless? SEFAC mobile column lifts for standard vehicles can be cable free (SW2) or wired (PMX or PMZ). The wireless version (cable free) is the most flexible solution. A standard 230V mains plug is required for charging. After charging, column lifts can be used in different places, as long as the floor is suitable. The wireless (cable free) column lifts are operating with batteries and communicate using a patented wireless communication protocol. If it is not necessary to move the mobile column lifts regularly, the PMX (more for buses, coaches and HD trucks) or the PMZ (more for civil works vehicles, airport vehicles and refuse trucks) can be enough. These both references are wired lifts. PMX and PMZ models offer the best price to features ratio. 380V three-phase are required for these columns. Apart from that, the heavy duty lifting technology is identical.
Mobile column lifts for forklift trucks
SEFAC offers two ways to lift forklift trucks with mobile columns: with a frontal or a lateral grip. Whatever the type of forklifters you are using (with 3 or 4 wheels), these both solutions perfectly meet users’ needs in term of ergonomics and comfort for your maintenance operations.
Mobile column lifts for special vehicles
Depending on the size of the wheels and the weight of your vehicles, the SEFAC product range for special vehicles has been divided in three.
Heavy duty electro-hydraulic lift with vertical lifting, no baseframe, clear access between platforms and unobstructed access from side to side. Ideal for maintenance of HGVs, coaches and buses up to 35 tonnes. The platforms are strongly built and offer great stability, safe operation and constant reliability.
Parallelogram lift with electro-hydraulic technology. Ideal for the maintenance and lifting of trucks, buses and heavy vehicles. The load distribution during lifting is very evenly spread through the structure of the lift thus minimizing wear of the lift’s components. All VEGA lifts are available in “surface mounted” and “flush fitted” versions.
Lifting up a vehicle is often a requirement to realize correctly specific maintenance operations. To make this possible, SEFAC has developed products in phase with major customers' expectations. Whatever the height of the axles of your vehicle may be, you will be able to realize any classical lifting up operations thank to a 700 mm lifting stroke. SEFAC offers a complete range of hydro pneumatic cross beam, with single or double jack, and capacities between 10 and 20 tons suitable for all widths of pits.
Multipurpose jacks (Vehicle and transmission jacks)
Thanks to the design of their carriage and their interchangeable heads, multipurpose jacks make it possible either to transmit mechanical assemblies or to lift a vehicle.
Floor transmission jacks
Floor jacks are used in addition to lifting equipment (i.e.: mobile column lifts). Equipped with wheels, you will be able to easily move mechanical parts inside your pit or in your workshop, since these products are also suitable for applications outside a pit. Developed for maintenance operations under lifting equipment, the DF. 6115 offer a real stability thanks to their important wheel base and their large piston diameter. The swivel head will allow you to move the assembly you are working on in the three directions. You can thus be sure to have the better ergonomic conditions.
Developed for lifting up any kind of industrial vehicles (heavy vehicles, low floor vehicles, high floor vehicles, forklifters), SEFAC oleopneumatic jacks dispose of:
- a double down-valve enabling to have a continuous speed,
- a parachute valve,
- a pneumatic approach.
Platform lifts enable to lift mechanical assemblies up to 1.5 ton and to work at the right height in optimal conditions.
King pin press
Equipped with pump with tared pressure limiter, SEFAC king pin press exerts forces from 60 tons. Thus, it perfectly corresponds to usual maintenance operations realised in the workshops for heavy vehicles.
SEFAC cranes incorporate a robust design for the most difficult commercial applications in the most demanding conditions. Our product range includes a number of folding cranes (perfect for saving on storage space) which have also been adapted to carry EURO pallets.
SEFAC workshop presses are designed for industry and workshops. They are provided, in their standard versions, with a sideways moveable double-acting cylinder and with a chain/cylinder operated adjustment system of table (not for APA 9025H).
Hydraulic wheel dolly
The dollies can be used to mount and dismount single or double wheels on heavy vehicles. They have hand and foot controls plus revolving wheels to give maximum maneuverability. The carriage moves on roller bearings and the arms are adjustable to cope with different wheel sizes.
Whatever you would like to clean on your vehicle, SEFAC has the solution.
Stands and trestles
Stands and trestles
- classic stands, to lay on a consolidated floor in your workshop and that perfectly complete your lifting equipment,
- dump body stand (also named tipping body stand),
- pit side stands, to maintain safely your vehicle above a pit,
- and trestles as an alternative to stands.
