UDS-series lifting jacks for fixed placement in railway depots and yards

    UDS-120, UDS-160 and UDS-200 fixed jacking units are used for lifting all types of carriages and wagons, locomotives, track machines and tanks for the purpose of repair or wheelset (bogie) replacement. Usually foundations for the jacks are included in design projects of repair workshops and depots, so we provide full package of documents for design institutes and coordinate capacity, electric motor location, lift height, power cable layout and required power, voltage, etc. We produce lifting systems for freight wagons and passenger cars, locomotives and tanks of different capacities. The main range consists of installations with total capacity of 120, 160 and 200 tons.

Our Customers choose stationary lifting columns with extendable claws for lifting of rolling stock depending on the capacity and purpose, and use them for the following tasks:

  • UDS-200 fixed jacking systems are mainly used in depots for servicing heavy shunting and mainline locomotives, diesel trains, various track machines, gas turbine locomotives, rail-mounted cranes and double-decker cars. 
  • UDS-160 fixed lifting systems are the most commonly used lifting equipment for railways; it is general-purpose equipment suitable for virtually 90% of the rolling stock for current repair or overhaul, as well as for replacing bogies upon track changeover.UDS-160 fixed jacking units are used for servicing freight wagons and passenger cars, all types of rail cars, electric and diesel locomotives, open wagons, hoppers and hopper feeders, caboose cars, insulated and refrigerated wagons, and railcars.
  • UDS-120 lifting columns are mainly used in depots and yards for serving head and middle subway cars. UDS-120 lifting jacks are suitable for all types and models of subway underground rail cars.

   Fixed railcar lifts require no special mounting on the foundation, so they can be installed in different positions depending on the length of the car frame (using a crane). Jacks are installed in pairs on opposite sides of the railway track.

Manufacturing of UDS-type lifting / column jacks

   During 75 years of serial production of stationary TED-30, DT-40, DET-40 and DET-50 jacking units we have accumulated a lot of experience that lets us manufacture reliable and safe UDS lifting jacks for wagons, rail cars and locomotives. Explosive-proof model of UDS for Georgia, tropical version for Libya and Cuba, moisture-proof versions for Colombia and Venezuela, dust-proof installations in India and Mongolia — each Customer gets individual attention and jacks manufactured for specific operating conditions.

   At our plant each jack passes the whole production cycle: from foundry to testing. We pay much attention to quality and safety, because the machinery, as weight lifting equipment, requires full quality control over manufacturing of frames and modules at all production stages. In the end of production cycle, each jack is tested under load at special stands, ensuring zero-fault operation of the unit since the first day of use.
