Universal Railway Press


The press is intended for assembly / disassembly of large shafts: bearings, sheaves, sleeves, hub groups, gear wheels. 

The press represents a horizontal design, in the basis of which two traverses, connected among themselves by two lateral rods, are fixed. Movable support is located between traverses. It can be fixed rigidly by slide shafts on the necessary distance from the cylinder plunger depending on the length of the pressed detail. Support moving is carried out by means of electric hoist. Movable support, front traverse, lateral rods and slide shafts form the pressing-in system. 

Power cylinder is mounted in the front traverse of the press Movable support serves as a stop for the stationary part of pressed shaft.

Producing Term - from 45 days. 

Presses MUSCLE KPRZ M.01 and M.02 can mount and dismount any type of wheelset with wheels, brake discs, gears and bearings. It is applied for different wheelsets (cargo, passengers, locomotive, trams, metro and ect.) in manual mode.

The quality of press conjunction of railway wheels is estimated using diagram of pressing-in, that is why the press has a device for recording diagram “pressure-space”.


Example 1. Wheelset press Muscle KPRZ-400M.01 without loading crane


Example 2. Wheelset press Muscle KPRZ-400M.01 with loading crane


In the example, additional monorail with a movable carriage for holding wheelset reducer during pressing-out is realized.


The press is equipped with controller, which allows programming the main technological parameters, authorizing users, saving in memory all relevant operator’s actions, etc.
