SOLE UK Agents for Hegenscheidt-MFD 'Light Metal Re-railing Systems'

We are proud to be the official recognised MFD distributor for the UK

For over 100 years Hegenscheidt-MFD has been partner of the rail industry. The acknowledged high quality of Hegenscheidt-MFD rail engineering rests on many years of unbroken close collaboration with the world’s leading railway organisations. Intensive dedication to the search for solutions to the problems of rail transportation meant that as early as 1926 re-railing equipment had been developed now forms the basis for re-railing technology throughout the UK infrastructure today.

Hegenscheidt-MFD rerailing equipment also uses the double-acting re-pressure system which has proved itself throughout the entire field of industrial hydraulics. This system makes it possible to lift, lower, push or pull with millimetre accuracy.

The individual components of Hegenscheidt-MFD rerailing technology have been matched to each other in their design, lifting height, load-bearing capacity and performance in such a way that they can be regarded as state of the art in the field of railway engineering.

The system has been designed so that, depending on how the components are put together, any rail vehicle (tram, subway or railway carriage, locomotive or traction unit, smelting plant vehicle and also the very heaviest transfer ladle car) can be up righted and re-railed.

Hegenscheidt-MFD applies the very highest safety requirements to the re-railing system. Ease of operation, simplicity in handling, robustness and stability under load underline this.
