Our vertical wheelset turning centers guarantee economical and permanently accurate complete machining of ring-shaped, difficult-to-machine workpieces of various materials and sizes. The machines are used in particular in the railroad sector for the new production of (high-speed) railroad wheels and die molds. The construction of the machines is designed for high cutting forces combined with high accuracies. Automatic tool and workpiece measurement as well as various process monitoring systems ensure operator-free production. With our vertical wheelset turning centers, workpieces with a max. diameter of 1600mm and a max. weight of 2000kg can be processed reliably. Due to the solid constructional basis of the RQ series, not only railroad wheels and die molds of various designs can be completely machined, but also ring-shaped, difficult-to-machine workpieces from the aerospace and bearing industries. Thanks to the modular design of our machines, we are also able to integrate a wide variety of technologies and machining concepts on a component-specific basis, such as drilling, threading or pocket milling. Our turning centers are also characterized by their high cutting performance, minimum non-productive times and excellent automation capabilities, which we are also able to realize within the group.

Our abovefloor portal wheelset lathes guarantee high productivity and machining quality in the field of wheelset maintenance and are available in various designs. Wheelsets with a running circle diameter of min. 500mm and max. 1400mm can be machined. The gantry design creates ideal freedom of movement for loading (roll-through operation) and operation of the machine. In addition, thanks to this design principle, the turning supports are arranged overhead, ensuring free chip fall with fast chip removal. The machines are also characterized by a high degree of automation, short clamping and unclamping times, short setup times and a long service life.

Our underfloor wheel set lathes provide high precision and economical machining of wheel sets for high speed trains as well as local trains in mounted and unmounted condition. Due to two different sizes, wheel sets with wheel diameter between 350 mm and 1400 mm can be efficiently reprofiled. The modern underfloor wheel set lathes not only meet all currently known machining and accuracy requirements, but their design is additionally geared toward future developments. The machines are universally applicable, dynamically rigid, and particularly operator- and service-friendly. As pioneers in wheel set reprofiling, our machines represent the highest current standard in wheel set machining technology. A tandem version is also available for simultaneous machining of wheel sets in bogies with mechanically uncoupled axles. With the new patented double tandem machine, two bogies are machined simultaneously.
