Fatigue Tests on Wheels and Axles

The R&D laboratory is equipped with modern test rigs to verify the fatigue resistance of wheels and axles according to the requirements of EN13260, EN13261, EN13262.

These test rigs are used for the product qualification of new wheels and axles; moreover innovative steel grades, surface treatments or specific designs and assembles can be characterized in order to validate the manufacturing process and the design prior to final manufacturing.
