Solutions for special vehicles


Electric linear actuators as handling solutions on special vehicles

Technological solutions for the fitting of special vehicles are constantly increasing and evolving, as they are specifically dedicated to a purpose, from the transport of people with a reduced mobility capacity (ambulances, cars and motorized wheelchairs) to the defence industry (armoured cars).
MecVel electric linear actuators optimize the performance of these kinds of special vehicles, as they automate a series of movements, offering several benefits.
Here some applications involving handlings controlled by electric linear actuators:
Ambulance stretchers: automatic lifting of the stretcher, which no longer requires a manual operation by medical staff
Armoured cars: control of steering and vehicle direction, positioning of metal detectors used for finding unexploded ordnances, for a further protection of operators
Vehicles for people with a reduced mobility capacity: automation of the opening/closing of doors and platforms for the wheelchair pick-up/drop-off and, in case of a motorized wheelchair, vertical adjustment of the seat or inclination of the backrest, in order to improve the independence for users of these vehicles


MecVel electric linear actuators ensure advantages in terms of flexibility, efficiency and sustainability.
These products, in fact, use technologies that allow to tailor them perfectly to any kind of application or special vehicle, through a customization service both for the mechanical part and the electric one.
This means also great efficiency, as the solutions provided are safe, long-lasting and require little maintenance.

Another further plus is the electric system used: more compact, accurate, easy to handle and above all less impacting on the environment than hydraulic or pneumatic ones.
