This lifting system is designed to lift a train following these steps:
- Lifting the complete train: The lifting platforms raise the entire train which rests on the wheels tread.
- Holding the carbody lifted: The carbody rests lifted by means of holding spindles, in order to remove the bogies.
- Lowering the bogie: Keeping the box raised, the platforms go down with the bogies for maintenance work.
The necessary tools to carry out maintenance operations can be connected to the power panels that are fitted in the system.
This unit is designed with a special rail system on which cars travel the entire length of the system on the wheels tread. Once the wheels are in the lifting area of the pit, the lifting operation can be carried out, following the process explained above.
