While the mechanical construction may look simple, this belies the experience and effort required to achieve such an elegant and simple, yet reliable design.
Utilising the latest 3D CAD systems and rapid prototyping techniques the completed Nelevator design achieves our design aims to provide a solid and reliable system for storing and manipulating your rolling stock, which is both easy to manufacture and assemble.
In order to reduce production costs and facilitate manufacture we ustilised the latest high-tolerance manufacturing techniques to produce a light, yet strong construction.
Custom aluminum extrusions maintain accuracy and reduce weight whilst precision high pressure water jet cut components ensure every system fits together perfectly, first time; no drilling or filing required.
