Yes, we do.
It is quite a usual task for us, as we perform it both for the machines we create as for our customers. Maintaining the wheel’s profile in good conditions is crucial and essential for the machine’s general security as well as to avoid damaging rails.
When mechanizing wheels we perform a copying technique so that we get an identical profile to the former one. Setting the piece correctly on the lathe is a critical action where we use some precision tools to perform it as perfectly as possible.
Once mechanizing is finished we check all parameters meet the stipulated measures.
Vefca, SL has also some lathes apart from those being used for wheel mechanizing.
