Bogie Presses are used for the assembly and disassembly of rail vehicle bogies/trucks. Bogie test stands contain the same pressing ability as a Bogie press but are also equipped to simulate a load of a vehicle body on the bogie in order to control the wheel loading pattern and monitor other important functions on a bogie after assembly and or disassembling.
Every bogie / rolling stock manufacturer will define what testing is required on their bogies for optimal performance. Our test stands are designed for the basic functions of measuring and recording wheel loads to measuring wheel and axle geometry for both 2 and 3 axle bogies.
Handling Specialty can design the Bogie Press or Bogie Stand to your particular list of requirements.
