Bearing Test Rig

The DANOBAT PLC controlled Bearing Test Machine, model DTR-W-30, has been specifically designed and manufactured for checking the bearing status of railway wheelsets.

Benefits

  • Reduction of the amount of bearings to be demounted: during wheelset inspection phase, the machine can check the status of the bearings, and determine whether they need to be demounted or not
  • As a consequence, possible damages created during mount/demount operations are minimized
  • It is a unmanned station : the loading/unloading of the wheelset is completely automatic, and there is no operator intervention in the process
  • The machine is prepared to repeat the testing in different bearing orientations
  • The machine can adapt to all narrow gauge type package bearings
