No job is too large or small for Mechan’s expert engineers. Mechan design, construct and commission completely bespoke traversers and turntables to the unique demands of your site.
Built to your needs
From concept to manufacture and installation, Mechan produce traversers that meet individual workshop and vehicle requirements. They are based on two basic design principles – multi rail or bridge. Both offer the same control functionality and, of course, the same Mechan build quality.
Mechan are very proud to have produced the largest traverser in the UK, which has a capacity of 170 tonnes, but because each one is made to order, any size is possible from 60 tonnes up. This means Mechan’s units are capable of moving anything from a single rail vehicle to the heaviest freight locomotives.
Mechan traversers can be used internally or externally and are planned around the practical constraints of your facility. A multi rail system has a much lower profile than a bridge, thanks to the shorter distance between supports and requires a shallower pit.
Using the latest technological developments, Mechan ensure their traversers are adaptable and equipped to handle whatever the future holds. Tomorrow’s rail vehicles are expected to be larger than current trains and it pays to be prepared.
