Danobat Railway Systems Axles, Wheels, Wheelsets and Bogies Machining

Danobat Railway Systems (DRS) is a machine tool engineering company fully dedicated to provide turnkey solutions for the machining of axles, wheels, wheelsets and bogies.

DRS can provide solutions for all machining operations from the cutting of raw material to the balancing of the wheels, axles and wheelsets, as well as non-destructive tests and automatic handling equipment. DRS offers customers all the machining technologies required for both implementing complete manufacturing processes and carrying out specific machining operations.

Danobat Group

DRS belongs to the Danobat Group, which is a leading company within the machine tool industry with more than ten plants and more than 1,300 employees all around the world. From this secure position, the Danobat Group offers its customers more than 50 years’ experience in providing turnkey solutions.

Technological research and development centre

Danobat Group has its own technological research and development centre. Its main strength is its team of workers, consisting of more than 100 highly qualified engineers.

Turnkey systems for axle, wheel, wheelset and bogie machining

DRS aims to go beyond merely supplying equipment. The company provides customers with engineering services throughout the entire planning and set-up process, as well as during the product’s subsequent working life.

Horizontal lathes for axle rough and finish turning

DRS possesses rough and finish four-axis heavy-duty horizontal lathes, made of mehanite cast iron, which are capable of dry and hard machining of axles. They have a very high power and high-dimensioned spindle sleeve.

Cylindrical grinders for axle grinding

DRS’ heavy-duty single and double wheelhead grinder is designed for high production and accuracy. Multi-diameter in-process jagging is available.

Vertical lathes for wheel turning

DRS’ strong, rigid, high-power CNC vertical lathe for wheel machining provides reliability and flexibility. It is the most economical solution for your wheel turning needs.

Wheelset hub-boring machine and systems

The DRS high precision hub-boring machine, equipped with a high accuracy boring bar, can be linked with an axle measuring system to perform machining pairs.

Floor-type travelling column milling machine

DRS’ floor-type travelling column milling machine allows the machining operation to be carried out in dry conditions, with the bogie being clamped in vertical position. This technique offers several important advantages:

  • Enables a substantial increase in productivity of around 30%, in comparison with gantry-type milling machines
  • Enables swarf to be removed by gravity, without interfering in the machine process, thus increasing the tool’s life
  • Eliminates the need to clean the chassis before painting

In order to perform the complete machining process, the solution provided has an automatic head-change system that enables the most appropriate spindle to be selected automatically for each operation.

In addition to the machining, special attention is paid to the clamping and handling systems. Bracket-based clamping systems enable pendulum operation (with the machine’s longitudinal travel being divided into a number of different working positions). As a result, the machine does not need to be stopped for loading / unloading operations and can machine one bogie while a second is loaded / unloaded.
