Rail wheels supplied off the shelve and to size
Due to our stock of a wide range of rail wheels, we guarantee fast delivery. The rail wheels have the standard rail profile according to UIC15-2 appendix B3 (Suitable for ProRail). When needed, we can alter the wheels to other rail profiles in our machine shop, for example tram mix profile or profiles for regulations in other countries. We have rail wheels in stock in various diameters, 400, 470, 600 and 700 mm, with mounting plates, for mounting on a drive motor or an existing trolley axle, etc. Wheels with a bearing bush are also available, they have a wheel diameter of 470 and 560 mm., often used for road tyre propelled machines.
High quality forged wheels
All our wheels are forged and hardened. They are made from C40 steel. The advantage of forging over casting is, that due to the recrystalisation of the grain they are - tougher, - mechnically stronger, - have a greater wear resistance, and there are no chances of casting cavities, captivities and faults. This makes the chance for damage and wear on the running surface, much less and gives the wheels a much longer life span.
Special customizing jobs
In case you need a real special and we cannot modify it out of an existing shape wheel, we can design and produce a new wheel to your specific demands.
Axles with full braking appliance
Next to rail wheels we produce rail axles, including service and parking brakes to be used for trailers or other vehicles on rails. These axles are a standard supply for 10 t. capacity and the wheels have a diameter of 470 mm. All axles are supplied with a pneumatic or hydraulic brake cylinder.
