Locomotive Traction Motor Servicing Facility

Adelaide City Engineering was approached to provide an appropriate concept and solution to the requirement of removing Traction Motors from up to 130 Tonne Locomotives. We generated 3D drawings showing our proposed Personnel Access Platform and the traversing Scissor Lift design. The system was required to fit within an existing pit. The design was reviewed, approved by the client and detail drawings were produced. Manufacture, installation and commissioning of the full system, including the hydraulics and the electrical control system was managed by Adelaide City Engineering. The project provided a unique cost effective solution to the Traction Motor removal and installation process, which was previously an extremely expensive and time-consuming process.

Locomotive Jacks

Adelaide City Engineering have produced a number of portable locomotive jacks of varying capacities. The jacks can be lifted by overhead crane and positioned under the bogies by hand. Once aligned all four jacks raise simultaneously to ensure even lifting.
