Title:
SYSTEM FOR REPROFILING A WHEEL SET OF A RAILWAY VEHICLE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/140053
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A system (1) for reprofiling a wheel set (3) of a railway vehicle allows the center of rotation (17, fig. 3) of the wheel set (3) to move relative to supporting rollers (15). A milling tool (7) used to reprofile the wheel profile on a wheel set (5) is moved horizontally and/or vertically (see fig. 3) to maintain a constant distance (21, fig. 3) between the center of rotation (17) and the milling cutter (7). The system avoids mechanically forcing a constant location of the center of rotation (17) of the wheel set (5).
