Exhibitor profile

HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD GmbH is a global manufacturer of machine tools. The company is a member of the NlLES-SIMMONS-HEGENSCHEIDT Group (NSH Group), which has more than 185 years of experience in German and American machine tool building. HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD supplies machine tools and complete turnkey solutions for two sectors, namely for the railway and automotive industry. HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD is a global market leader, particularly for its machining of railway wheelsets. The product range consists of equipment for railway wheels and wheelsets, including underfloor, mobile and portal wheel lathes, wheel diagnostic systems and re-railing components.

This year HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD will present their underfloor wheel lathe U2000-150, a module of their Argus wheelset diagnostic system, as well as their new light metal re-railing system.
The underfloor wheel lathe U2000-150 reprofiles mounted wheelsets from rail vehicles. The machining functions are not just limited to reprofiling wheelsets, but also include particular machining functions, i.e. the cutting of several kinds of brake discs. Demonstrations will include the extensive new technologies regarding measurement engineering of wheelsets.
HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD supplies Argus, a fully automatic monitoring system for wheelsets in continuous operation using modern, efficient measuring methods and documentation in a database. The system monitors stringent tolerances and operating limits that are required for increasing speeds and enhanced safety, travelling comfort and operational reliability. The modular system design allows economic adjustment to the measurement requirements of the customer. Demonstrations will include the innovative module for their new magnetic crack detection system of wheelsets.
For the recovery of derailed vehicles, HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD offers state-of-the-art re-railing units. The company’s re-railing equipment is currently making a contribution to rail transportation in more than 100 countries. The technology consists of a double-acting re-pressure system that offers lifting, lowering, pushing or pulling capabilities with millimetre accuracy. Demonstrations will include HEGENSCHEIDT-MFD’s redesign of the light metal re-railing technology, with the highest safety requirements to the re-railing system for ease of operation, and simplicity in handling, robustness and stability under load.
