Officine Meccaniche BBM is a worldwide leading company specialised in engineering and manufacturing of railway workshop equipment and rolling-stock maintenance production equipment.
Our range of rolling-stock maintenance production equipment includes machines for mounting and testing wheelsets, two and three-axle bogies and springs for railway and metro. Moreover, we can provide bogie and wheel drop systems as well as ultrasonic equipment, bogie running testing benches and lifting devices.
BBM hydraulic wheel presses are available with the following features:
Hydraulic wheel presses from BBM are fully computer controlled.
The BBM bogie testing stands, used in customer workshops for production and maintenance of coaches and locomotives bogies, are available with bogie axle and/or wheel load tests; pneumatic system for air-tightness tests; bogie dimension tests (wheel gauge, axle parallelism, axle distance and wheel diameter); height-of-bogie tests; tilting tests; and automatic calculation of shim plates.
Bogie testing stands from BBM are fully computer controlled and contribute to delivering technically accurate bogies.
The BBM spring testing press can be used for testing coil and leaf springs. Tests can be performed with dedicated machines, one per each type of spring, or with a single, integrated, universal solution.
The spring testing machines are available with the following test features:
The BBM bogie and wheel drops (which can be of screw or scissor type) can be used to remove bogie or wheelsets while the train is located and supported over the table top. The bogie (or wheelset) is disconnected, lowered, transferred laterally and raised to a release track. It can then be moved to a maintenance area where inspection and repair can be performed quickly and efficiently.
The BBM bogie running testing bench, able to work with both trailer and motor bogie for maximum speeds of 300km/hr, is available with the following test features: vibration, temperature, noise, and current/voltage test for motor bogies.
Formed in 1965, BBM has long experience with large worldwide companies to whom it offers professional service, pre-sale advice, planning, installation and aster-sales service.
BBM's quality and safety management systems are certified to EN-ISO 9001:2008, EN-ISO 3834-2 and DIN18800.
