Under Floor Wheel Late

LWR possess over a state-of-the-art underfloor wheel lathe. The lathe uses probes and encoders to accurately determine various dimensions of train wheels. (Diameter, wheel flange height, etc) After consulting with the customer our skilled employees use the lathe’s cutting plate to trim material of the wheels. With doing this, the height, width, diameter and QR of the axis can be adjusted as desired. Re-calibration of odometry and signalling systems is done afterwards. This whole process is without the need of dismounting the train axle. furthermore, one of the services we also offer is the maintenance of brake disks.

High Voltage Overhead Testing Facility

Unique in the Netherlands, LWR facilitates an overhead high voltage testing facility capable of producing voltages used on all European railway nets. Problems that for example would only occur on the German net, will now be caught in the workshop. These then can be immediately solved, reducing overall servicing time!
