Vector Lifting has continued to improve the Underfloor Lifting System (ULS) to assist in the maintenance of Electrical Multiple Units (EMU). The ULS has been developed to raise a single car or multiple car configurations. When raised the ULS will support the carriage/s whilst the bogies are lowered.
The ULS is designed to leave a flat trafficable floor in the maintenance depot for ease of movement of forklifts and machinery when the system is not in use. The Vector Lifting ULS is developed with an adjustable body support claw to allow the system to support multiple configurations of railcar if required and increase the efficiency and safety of servicing the entire fleet.
The ULS is capable of lifting a single car or cars in a group configuration for synchronised vehicle lifts. Below a 12 car, 720 tonne simultaneous lift of the Taiwan High Speed Train is shown.
