Product: Lifting Trolley Jacks
for the assembly of the air conditioning prop shafts on Bombardier Trains
The design and manufacture of the units was undertaken by Meddings Engineering after consultation with Bombardier technical staff. The first units were tested at the Plymouth engineering yard, other units manufactured and placed in engineering yards around the UK.
Savings: Originally the units took 2 hours to dismantle and over 3 hours to reassemble by hand, using 4 men. By using the lifting trolley 1 man can remove a shaft in 1 hour and reassemble in 1.5 hours.
