RAW MATERIAL CUTTING SHOP

Approved steel plates of respective grades for different types of bogie frames are cut in batches of 4 or 8 Nos in three CNC machines.

  • CNC Plasma (High Definition) for plates upto 32mm. Edge preparation 30, 45, 60 in x-y direction on long plates from 5 axis CNC Bevelling Torch on above machine.
  • CNC Oxycut Machines for plates above 32mm
  • CNC Plasma for plates upto 20 mm

Critical dimensions and profiles are checked with gauges and records are maintained.

PRESS SHOP

All types of dies, punches and gauges for each type of bogie frame to be used in CNC press brake and Hydraulic presses are inhouse designed and developed.

  • CNC Press Brake 450 MT, 4.5 Meter
  • Hydraulic Press 400 MT
  • Hydraulic Press 200 MT

Each component's bending profiles and contours are checked by Gauges.Few gauges are portable and a few are fixed type to ensure accuracy of bending. Records are maintained.
