Electric linear actuators at for the railway industry
ELECTRIC LINEAR ACTUATORS AT THE SERVICE OF THE RAILWAY INDUSTRY
Since 1987 MecVel plays a key role in the automation field, and its core business is the design and the production of electric linear actuators. These devices transform the rotatory motion of a motor into a push or pull movement for loads up to 20 tons, and they perfectly meet the railway industry, as it requires high-performing products, which use an electric and eco-sustainable system, really versatile.
In particular, this flexibility is given by the customization service of the company, able to configure each electric linear actuator to satisfy the technical specifications of the application to which it is intended.
MECVEL ELECTRIC SYSTEM’S ADVANTAGES
The high precision with which these products are manufactured turns into great efficiency, with the purpose to offer reliable and safe linear motion technologies to the railway industry. This makes possible the application to switching devices, wagons up to accessibility solutions provided on trains, to improve the usability by people with a reduced mobility capacity.
Moreover, MecVel has a customization service, developing flexible electric linear actuators, tailored according to the railway industry’s technical needs, optimizing the linear automation. This also thanks to a powerful, compact, and eco-friendly electric system, suitable for outdoor use even with bad weather conditions.
