Specifications

Hydraulic wheel presses

High-automated wheel presses with two press cylinders, e.g. types RP 2000/3000 2P (P).

With two press cylinders for the pressing on and off of up to six wheel set components (e.g. two wheels and four brake disks) in one setting or wheels and other components of heavy locomotive wheel sets, as for example ICE-driving wheel sets.

  • Pressing force of 2,000 to 5,000 kN
  • Centering of the wheel set during the pressing on and off process
  • Design as rolling-in or rolling-through type
  • Charging of the wheel press by means of a manually operated or automatically driven charging trolley
  • Automatic positioning of the wheel set components on the axle by means of a laser-operated measuring device
  • Measuring of the radial and axial run out and post measuring of the wheel sets after the pressing on
  • Automatic recording of the course of the force and stroke for each pressed on component
  • Computer-controlled operation of the wheel press
  • Storage in a data-bank of all wheel set data of the different types

Universal hydraulic wheel presses

with one press cylinder and centering device, e.g. types RP 2000/3000 1P.

With one press cylinder and centering device at the rear column for the universal pressing on and off of wheel set components.

  • Pressing force of 2,000 to 5,000 kN
  • Centering of the wheel set during the pressing on and off process
  • Charging of the wheel press by means of workshop- or bridge crane
  • Automatic positioning of the wheels by means of a laser-operated measuring device
  • Pre-selectable ram stroke for the easy positioning of brake disks or gear components
  • Pre-assembly of the wheel set components onto the wheel set axle on an assembly stand
  • Automatic recording of the course of the force and stroke for each pressed on component
  • Computer-controlled operation of the wheel press
  • Storage in a data-bank of all wheel set data of the different types

Hydraulic wheel presses

with one press cylinder with integrated additional hydraulic barrel and centering device at the rear column, e.g. types RP 2000/3000 1PP.

Hydraulic wheel presses type RP 3000 1PP and type RP 2000 1PP (wheel presses during commissioning in the K√ľnstler workshop)

With one press cylinder with integrated additional hydraulic barrel and centering device at the rear column for automatic pressing on of wheels onto freight wagon wheel sets.
