Bogie Presses are used for the assembly and dis-assembly of rail vehicle bogies / trucks. Bogie test stands contain the same pressing ability as a Bogie press but are also equipped to simulate the load of a vehicle body on the bogie in order to control the wheel loading pattern and monitor other important functions on a bogie after assembly and or dis-assembling.
Every bogie / rolling stock manufacturer will define what testing is required on their bogies for optimal performance. Our test stands are designed from basic functions of measuring and recording wheel loads, to measuring wheel and axle geometry for both 2 and 3 axles bogies.
Handling Specialty can design the Bogie Press or Bogie Stand to your particular list of requirements.
