In the midst of ongoing supply chain issues and increasing global uncertainty, it’s crucial for North American railway operators as well as wheel manufacturers to re-shore their railway wheel sourcing.
NSH USA Corporation manufactures a full line of precision CNC machining centers for the rough and finish machining of new wheels as well as wheel maintenance.
The NILES-SIMMONS RQ-Series machines are vertical turning centers for the machining of forged blank railway wheels. They accommodate a wide range of production goals by incorporating one or two turning tool posts as well as a turn-milling unit for maximum process flexibility. Integrated measurement and automatic tool changing allow for unattended and “closed-door” machining.
The Simmons WTC-250 Wheel Turning Center is a special purpose wheel boring finishing machine for wheel maintenance and production. It features an automatic extended travel table to accommodate a wide range of AAR wheel sizes without operator intervention. The machine’s integrated measurement means a precise wheel bore and a lower misfit rate when mounted on an axle.
NSH USA also offers automated material handling solutions to safely and efficiently move work pieces through the wheel manufacturing facility.
