Machining of Railway Axles
Imagine that you travel a distance of 30.5 kilometers in 8 minutes. Impossible? Not quite! Because on the high-speed rail line from Shanghai airport to downtown Shanghai you will exactly cover this distance at speed of 430 km/h.
The appropiate high-speed railway wheels are produced on our vertical turning machines and reprofiled and serviced by means of NILES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group (NSH) technologies. So we guarantee utmost safety at maximum speed.
