Wheel: European Standard low maintenance for 25t traffic

Start: 2018-01-1

End:

Project code: 2018/RSF/574

Project director: Marc ANTONI

Project manager: Sophie SERODON

Recent years have seen various measures being introduced to improve wheel maintenance in response to incidents in service. Developing a new harmonised wagon wheel and harmonised interface for axle would serve towards harmonisation and ensuring effective maintenance at a low cost.
Problem to solve:

  • Standardised wheel design compatible with the UIC ESFA axle (final deliverable of the UIC project P406)
  • Decrease maintenance and purchase cost for wheels
    Added values:
  • Spread of standardised wheel with consequent scale economy
  • Harmonised procedures for maintenance
