When in application, the lifting frames are used for lifting rail vehicles in the customer’s assembly building by lowering the frames via an overhead crane around the train car or locomotive, then securing the undercarriage with the frame’s manually cranked steel support arms. Once secure, the two frames are lifted again by the crane and the car is moved to the next work station.


Handling Specialty was tasked to design and build a lifting frame for a railcar manufacturing facility in the US. This lifting frame assembly order included two lifting frames, and wheeled storage rack with rainproof cover for exterior storage when the frames are not in use.
