Computer-Controlled Hydraulic Jacking

Computer-Controlled Hydraulic Jacking

What is computer controlled hydraulic jacking?

Computer controlled hydraulic jacking systems offer the ability to make use of multiple input sensors – controlling lifting, lowering and positioning of heavy structures in order to minimise on-site risks during temporary works.

How does computer controlled hydraulic jacking work?

Mabey’s computer controlled hydraulic jacking capabilities are complemented by our advanced monitoring solutions. This gives us the ability to carefully monitor your structure, providing the information you need in real-time on LIVEsite, so you can quickly respond to changes with highly accurate computer controlled hydraulic jacking movements.

This system was used to ensure that the Docklands Light Railway could remain in use whilst tunnels were bored beneath the Canning Town Flyover.
