Cabin Door Lifting Jig

Cabin Door Lifting Jig

Designed to maintain and support the process of cabin door fitting.



We received a request from our rail industry client to create a Cabin Door Lifting Jig that will support and maintain the fitting of cabin doors onto trains. Previously, it was common for the assembly of door fitting to be exclusively through man power which was ineffective and curbed progression in their method.

Here at Acres Engineering, we manufactured a new Cabin Door Lifting Jig that provides the solution to this issue. Our custom Jig will support the weight of the door during the fitting which reduces the overall time taken. This effectively clears time for other processes in their system. This solution also delivers a substantial health and safety improvement by taking the weight off of the workers to fit the door. As a result it reduces the risk of accidents and casualties. This product can be adapted for various train models and Depots.
