We design and manufacture a range of stands to store bogies, wheelsets and other undercar equipment securely and efficiently.
Our bogie stands support wheel treads, to protect flanges and paintwork on the frame from damage. If required, they can also be made to help rotate wheels during storage.
We design three types of stand – wheel to wheel, frame to frame and stackable frames. Stacking frames provide a positive location for the bogie wheels on their treads and hold them firmly in place. All contact areas are covered with an HDPE soft nylon face to prevent damage to wheel treads and the frames are designed to be stacked up to three high, minimising the floor space used.
Each stand is supplied with lifting lugs, so it can be handled by conventional slings and an overhead crane. Please note, these points are for moving the storage frame only and not for transporting a bogie.
When key undercar equipment needs to be worked on in a depot or overhaul facility we can also design and manufacture work stands. These can be made to accommodate bogies, wheelsets, axles, traction motors and more. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
