Worlifts are the Sole UK agents for Hegenscheidt-MFD Re-Railing equipment and associated products.

Hegenscheidt-MFD jacks, or MFD jacks as they are widely known, are a double acting hydraulic re-railing system that is internationally to re-rail and lift all types of rail vehicles and rolling stock.

The system is lightweight, robust, reliable and very safe and can be operated by one person via a control unit situated away from any potentially hazardous areas.

The New TH-30 Lifting Jack Series

This latest design has seen up to a 20% reduction in weight compared to the previous range, providing easier handling and positioning, and reducing fatigue of the user. This series of jacks has an integrated base plate for greater stability and can be used on an incline of up to 6 degrees. Although lighter, these jacks are very robust and durable which significantly reduces maintenance costs.

Control Unit

Control Unit

The latest control unit is compact and operates using a removable tripod which is adjustable in height and can be folded for easy and space-saving transportation and storage.

It is now possible to carry out synchronised lifting with just one lever which improves safety during the re-railing operation.

The control unit can operate up to 4 individual lifting or traversing jacks.

Displacing Jack

Equipment for Lateral Displacement

Once the derailed vehicle has been lifted, lateral displacement equipment is used to traverse it precisely till its aligned with the track before being lowered back into the correct position.

Displacing Jack

The displacing jack is used to push or pull the load along the re-railing bridge with a roller carriage. It has a pushing force of 120kN and pulling force of 60kN

Re Railing Bridges

Re-railing Bridges

Re-railing Bridges are hollow extruded sections of high-strength light metal alloy. All bridges can be joined together with a steel coupling. Bridges are equipped with retractable handles to assist with positioning and transport, the top surface has drilled holes to accommodate the Countersupport and Displacing Jack.

Roller Carriages

Roller Carriages

Roller Carriages are used for traversing the load along the Re-railing Bridge. Rollers are fitted with maintenance-free bearings which permit easy lateral movement. Available with or without rotating and sliding plates which compensate for radial forces occurring when loads lifted at one end are being moved.

Each carriage is fitted with two pockets which allows displacing jacks, distance bars or stopping devise to be connected.

Lateral Displacement

Coming Soon

Hegenscheidt-MFD have developed the next generation of re-railing equipment which includes new designs of the lateral displacement products. The new rollers carriages can be locked in place to prevent the lifted load from any uncontrolled movement. The use of high tensile aluminium alloys has allowed a significant weight reduction.
