Rail Electric Motors and Track Signalling Inductors
The Metcalfe Group has a strong engineering base that is experienced in constructing and working with magnetics, aircraft ground-support equipment, hydraulics, electronics, mechanics, heavy-duty automotive electrical equipment, DC electric motors, etc.
DC electric motors and magnetic track-signalling inductors
Metcalfe Rail Engineering, one of the group’s companies, carries out design and manufacture of 74VDC electric motors, magnetic track-signalling inductors, etc.
Track inductor magnets
Our track inductor magnets are specifically used in the rail industry for signalling systems. Track inductors are fitted on the railway sleepers between the lines for automatic signalling. Permanent magnet track inductors are used in conjunction with electro-magnets.
We make any resistor that you may need for a rail application: resistors for magnet control boxes, soft-start resistors or resistors that are made to order to suit your specific application.
Rail DC electric motors
Metcalfe Rail Engineering specialises in service and repair of all types of DC electric motors (e.g. boom-gate motors, point motors and air-conditioning motors).
Battery-operated magnet for railway jewellery
The BAT-MAG is a 12V/24V fully self-contained and remote battery-operated magnet for lifting or removing railway jewellery (e.g. dog spikes, fish plates, studs, etc.) Sizes range from 18in up to 44in.
Rail 24V, 25A alternators
Metcalfe Rail Engineering manufactures 24V, 25A alternators designed to replace older-style generators (e.g. for heritage or vintage trains, or brushless generators).
Safety lift magnets
We supply safety lift magnets with a 100kg to 2,000kg capacity, for lifting plates, bars and off-cuts.
Plate lifter magnets
Metcalfe Rail Engineering manufactures and supplies plate lifter magnets made to your specifications.
Forklift sweeper magnets
We manufacture/supply forklift sweeper magnets for applications ranging from general worksite use to factory clean-up.
DC electric motors for Queensland Rail
Metcalfe Electric Motors, another company in the Metcalfe Group, designs, manufactures and services specialised DC electric motors for Queensland Rail.
Magnetic lifting and separation equipment
Metcalfe Magnets designs, manufactures and services magnetic lifting and separation equipment from permanent magnets to electro magnets, in voltages from 12VDC to 220VDC.
Heavy-duty starters and maxi alternators
Metcalfe Truckelectrics provides design, manufacture and service of maxi alternators, and a supply and repair service for heavy-duty starters and alternators.
Aircraft ground-support equipment
Metcalfe GSE designs, manufactures and services aircraft ground-support equipment for commercial airlines and the Australian Defence Department.
The Metcalfe Group is certified to the ISO 9001:2000 international standard.
