Our component-specific testing machines
Testing machines for wheels, wheel flanges, and wheelset shafts
Vehicle wheels are subjected to complex stresses. External rotating bending loads exert particularly heavy stress on the connecting areas of the wheel such as wheel flanges and flange bearings and their screw connections.
The axles and wheels of railed vehicles are also subject to complex loads. The wheel disc area or wheelset axle is particularly stressed by rotating bending loads. All of the components of the wheelset, such as the wheelset and three-center curve of the shaft, are also subject to rotating bending loads.
These loads can be exactly replicated through unbalanced mass rotating bending test rigs in the laboratory.
