Product Development: Wheel Boring Machine Extended Travel Table
The right tool for the right job – it’s as easy as that. The Simmons WTC-250 Wheel Turning Center is designed specifically for the railway wheel shop environment, with features geared towards making wheel boring and machining safer, faster, and more efficient.
One of the key features that accomplishes this is the automatic extended travel table. The table has a travel range of 12 inches (305 mm), which accommodates AAR-approved wheel sizes 28 through 38 inches without manually adjusting jaw tops. Have wheels outside of that range? Custom jaws can be manufactured.
Instead of wasting time repositioning table jaws every time you change wheel sizes, use the right tool from the start and stay productive. The Simmons Extended Travel Table is available now on all new WTC-250 Wheel Turning Centers.
