Electric linear actuators at the service of the railway industry

Electromechanical components such as electric linear actuators can be used also in the transport industry, with a focus on railways and related linear automation processes.
These are some of the applications supplied by MecVel:
• Railroad switches: handling of switching devices, for example to guide the train on a secondary track when not in use or for maintenance operations
• Wagons: automation of the door opening/closing
In addition, to improve the accessibility of people with a reduced mobility capacity, electric linear actuators are used to handle elevators, to raise/lower platforms, in order to allow an easier transit of the wheelchair.


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 technical needs, optimizing the linear automations.
This also thanks to a powerful, compact and eco-friendly electric system, suitable for outdoor use even with bad weather conditions.
