NILES-SIMMONS RQMC Wheel Machining Center

The NILES-SIMMONS RQMC Wheel Machining Centers are CNC vertical machining centers for the heavy duty production of railway wheels. Robust design, use of heavy-duty cutting tools with Capto C10 and HSK 100 interfaces, and automatic tool change ensure optimal machining of forged or hot-rolled wheels.

The RQMC is configured with one turning tool post and one turn-milling head for complete wheel machining. The multi-technology system can also accommodate the machining of rotationally symmetric workpieces from aerospace and bearing industries.
