Mechan’s flagship jacks are raising standards in the transport industry. Thanks to Mechan’s patented Megalink controller, they enable the synchronised lifting of multiple rail cars by a single operator.
Technically and commercially viable
Any number of jacks can be linked together using the innovative Megalink system. Mechan can also modify the design to suit wider or taller vehicles.
Durable and long lasting
Mechan build jacks that are designed to work hard in any environment and have a minimum design life of 25 years – far longer than that of other lightweight alternatives. Safety is a priority and they will maintain a load even when power is lost.
Versatile and easy to install
Mechan’s jacks enable coordinated use to a 3mm tolerance and have a lifting capacity ranging from five to 50 tonnes. They are quick to set up, interlink and substitute and can cater for all types of rail vehicle. A mobile version with a fixed or moving anvil is available and rail mounted jacks can also be provided. They do not require the installation of underground cabling and can be moved using a wide legged proprietary pallet truck. It is possible to position them along a road and leave in place, as the anvils can be retracted to allow a vehicle to pass.
Mechan offer jacks for tram, intercity, metro, high-speed, regional, and freight vehicles.
