Lifting & sliding components

Telescopic Cylinders are used for lifting the railway vehicle. Before selecting the cylinders, it’s important to know the weight of the railway vehicle and the stroke you need. Stacking Rings can be easily placed around the plunger of the Telescopic Cylinders by using the Fork Tool. Stacking Rings are used for the mechanical securing of the railway vehicle, when the vehicle has to hold its position for a longer time period.

Telescopic cylinders are placed on Traverse Sleds, which are located on the Beam. The Traverse Sleds are connected to each other by two length-adjustable Traverse Struts. Between the Traverse Struts a Traverse cylinder is located, with a pulling and pushing capacity of 12 tons. This Traverse Cylinder pushes or pulls the Traverse Sleds over the Beam.

Sled Fill Plates can be placed under the Telescopic Cylinder if necessary, when spaces between the cylinders and the lifting points need to be filled. The Locking Device will prevent the vehicle from sliding during the lifting.

The Wheel set is used for easy movement of the Beams to their location. Base Plates are used under the lifting cylinders for lifting the railway vehicle on the ground, instead of on the Beam. The Top Plate is used on each Traverse Sled to ensure there is no sliding on the lifting cylinders, but only on the Traverse Sleds (only in combination with the Sled Fill Plates).
