Rail has been and remains critical to Australia, both city metro systems & transportation of goods across the country and for the mining industry
CNC Design’s focus for rail is maintenance, specifically wheel lathes. Portal / Above Floor Wheel Lathes (with wheel set removed from the bogie) & Under Floor Wheel Lathes (with wheel set in situ on the bogie & train) are a key to all rail workshops.
We have been involved with both OEMs and for the upgrade & modernisation of these machines for more than 20 years.
Besides machine tools the automation of modern rail workshops means that handling has become an important topic. CNC Design is able to accomplish this task with Gudel gantries and Siemens Motion Control products, SINUMERIK or SIMATIC.
