When it comes to quality, every detail matters
0 dfr technology
Full cast iron machine structure
  • Long-term stability compared to fabricated steel
  • Excellent vibration damping
  • Best performance against temperature variations
Cross slide assemblies
  • Combination of accurate linear & prismatic guiding systems
  • Incorporates tool holders and measuring devices
Measuring system

The lathe automatically calculates an optimal wheel profile based on the worn condition, providing higher operating efficiencies.

Wheel drive system

During the turning operation, we spin the worn wheel using an area outside the rolling surface. This improves the rotational stability of the worn wheel.

Axial guiding system

Highly robust, with the capacity to eliminate axial movement of the wheelset due to rotational and cutting forces. Increased life by means of hardened steel rollers and automatic lubrication.

A machine designed for sustainability and easy installation
