Your Specialist For Hot Steel
Reliable partner for rail engineering & technology
We fulfill highest quality demands
Rail vehicles are nowadays an important means of transport and characterise the infrastructure of the 21st century. The extension of high-speed railway transport network enables a safe and fast connection between the different conurbation and is of increasing importance – espacially in the asiatic region. Besides, the volume of transported goods is not negligible.
Drop forged components are with respect their resistance often used in bogies, couplings and suspensions in the railway technology sector as well as in track- and pointwork exemplary base plates or slide rods. Additionaly you will fnd forged components in the signalling.
WSW has longtime experience in these industries and manufactures for these sensitive application areas forged components which satisfy highest quality requirements. Our know-how is expressed not least in our various certifications, explicit the HPQ Railway rolling stock (railed vehicles) and HPQ Permanent Way (rail structure) from the Deutsche Bahn, which permit WSW to deliver such components directly or indirectly.
Our delivery program include:
– Couplings: draw bar/cup sleeves, switches and plates, coupling links
– Bogie: stabilisation support, gear support, axle guide
– Rail and points: slide shares, base plates, slide poles
Moreover we manufacture forged components for the maintenance, for example carbide load tamping tools or various accessory components like stop blocks.
