Freight car wheel sets can easily be exchanged due to their simple removal process from their truck
Removal of wheelsets from transit and LRT vehicles will depend on the complexity of the removal process on each transit vehicle's manufacturers design
Split rail systems require the use of a raised rail track section for the removal procedure.
Our supplied battery powered lifting carts (hydraulic or screw lift) travel between the raised rails to pre-set multiple rail opening areas along the track.
Currently there are four main designs of our past systems:
Rails manually removed at multiple track locations, Powered Cart lowers and rotates wheelset
Rails automatically lower at multiple track locations, Powered Cart lowers and rotates wheelset
- Rails manually swung open at single track location, Powered Cart lowers wheelset and cart traverses
Rails manually swung open at multiple track locations, Powered Cart lowers wheelset
Based on your facility layout, we can design a system for your application.
Our designs are based on our customer's requirements:
- Available ship spacing
