Of course, we also offer our independent testing and investigation centres to you as a service.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have!

Correct service

Regular scheduled service checks are not just for cars. We investigate and repair everything related to wheelsets, wheels and axles, with state-of-the-art equipment, methods and the full extent of our expert knowledge. This is how we ensure the lifelong value retention of your investments for all types of rail vehicles.

Preventive service

Of course it is better to be safe than sorry, so we advise you to take preventative maintenance measures to avoid unplanned costs. We offer this service for all our components.


Modernisation can pay off in the future, especially with regards to costs. The subsequent sound reduction of wheelsets can also be a profitable investment. We are happy to calculate the potential savings for your new wheels and wheelsets.
