UNDERFLOOR LIFTING SYSTEMS
BBM underfloor lifting systems are designed for lifting complete trains or single rail cars and locomotives for maintenance and repair work as well as for replacement of components. The lifting system and car body supports/stands are designed according to the special requirements of the clients. This equipment allows a depot to be built with a completely flat floor with no obstructions when the system is not in use.
The same technology used to lift complete trains can be used to lift single bogies or wheelsets for maintenance activities.
BOGIE AND WHEELSET DROPS
BBM bogie and wheelset drops (which can be screw or scissor type) can be used to remove bogies or wheelsets while the train is located and supported over the tabletop. The bogie (or wheelset) is unfastened, lowered, laterally transferred and raised to a release track. It can then be moved to a maintenance area where inspection and repair can be performed. This equipment allows a limited train stop at maintenance depot.
