Thomson Engineering Developed the very first hydraulic panel lifting beam for Road Rail Excavators in 2000. Since then we have pioneered many developments in the field of track panel handling as our range of equipment demonstrates.
universal beam

Universal Lifting Beam

The Thomson Universal Lifting Beam is the industry standard hydraulic panel lifting beam for tandem lifting operations. It can also be used as a rail beam and for handling scrap switch and crossing components.

low headroom panel beam

Low Headroom Panel Beam

Minimising the overall height of the lifting equipment used under Live Overhead Equipment allows an increased margin of safety. The low headroom panel beam has an attachment point at rail head level, about as low as possible, to gain the very most from the available space.

s&c beam

S & C Lifting Beam

Designed to be pre fitted to S+C panels these special beams save significant time in the lifting operation on site.

radio controlled beam

Radio Controlled Panel Beams

Self powered and radio controlled panel lifting beams for use with traditional rail cranes and spreader beams to eliminate working at height issues.

small panel beam

Small Panel handler

The Thomson Engineering Design Small Panel Handler is the ideal solution for single lifting of track panels up to 6 tonnes.

heavy panel lifter

Heavy Panel Lifter

The Heavy Panel Lifter is designed for the single lifting of track panels up to 20m long and 12 tonnes in weight.


Megabeam & Megabeam System

The Thomson Megabeam System is specifically designed for rail supply yards.

Panel Lifting Hook Beam

Requiring no hydraulic or pneumatic power and available in single lift and tandem lift configurations this system is a simple solution to panel handling.
