Success Story - SPKGSPOA
SPKGSPOA heavy-duty flanged wheels for rail vehicles
A manufacturer of shunters and rail vehicles.
The customer developed a road-rail vehicle with an unprecedented drive concept that is suitable for both rails and streets. For rail use, the vehicle required a flanged wheel, which features smooth rolling with high load capacities. With predetermined dimensions such as a diameter of 29.5 inches the aim was to be able to guarantee load capacities of 7.7 tons, as well as improved traction values and reduced noise emissions
Because the customer-specific requirements necessitated a special construction, we developed a welded wheel center made of 42CrMo4 steel with a welded support ring. We are able to achieve improved traction compared to steel-on-steel using a shrink-fit cast nylon press-on band, which also provides improved operational comfort.
