World Market Leader in the Freight & Transit Railway Sectors

By utilizing joint competencies in the field of railway technology, the NSH Group is the market leader in the development, manufacture, and supply of vertical and horizontal turning machines and systems for all aspects of wheel set machining. Based on our product range, we are the only company worldwide able to completely realize automated turnkey railway workshops and mobile systems for wheelset production and repair.

For more Speed & longer Life

Imagine covering 30.5 kilometers in 8 minutes. Impossible? Not quite! Because on the high-speed line from Shanghai airport to downtown Shanghai, you cover precisely this distance at 430 km/h. The corresponding high-speed railway wheels are produced on our Kraussel lathes, and reprofiled and maintained with technologies from the NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group (NSH). We thus provide maximum safety at top speed. This also applies to local, long-distance, and freight transport. By utilizing joint competencies in the field of rail vehicle technology, the NSH Group is the world market leader in the development, manufacture, and supply of vertical and horizontal turning centers as well as grinding machines and fully automated systems for the machining of wheel sets. Based on our product range, we are the only company worldwide able to realize fully automated turnkey facilities, automated workshops, and mobile systems for wheel set machining and repair as a general contractor.
