Axle

Tried and tested high-end quality

Are BVV axles with outstanding service life a coincidence? No, there are five good reasons for it: the careful selection of materials, the superior construction, the elaborate forging and the high-quality coating. And of course the mechanical processing on state-of-the-art processing machines.

The material

Purpose and customer requests define the steel. We follow the current standards. In any case, the quality meets the highest standards: thoroughly and extensively tested and proven a thousand times over.

The construction

The wheelset axles of each vehicle series are usually unique. Matched to the respective application and provided with the interfaces defined by the chassis, all axles are optimised under the guiding principles of robustness and longevity .Of course, services such as the determination of service test intervals, for example, from a fracture mechanical point of view, are also part of the portfolio.

The surface treatment methods

All common heat and surface treatment methods are available to our customers: Cold rolling, shot blasting, molybdenum coating and more. As a premium treatment, we recommend a chemical-thermal process because it performed best in the comparative tests: Nitrating the gas flow. It penetrates deep into the material, positively changes its properties and increases the resistance of the material sustainably.

Our axle offer

Driven and trailing wheelset axles

Of course we offer both variants – with the same quality level.

Solid or hollow-bored

As a rule, weight or service aspects determine the choice – no matter what you choose: Quality and longevity are perfect.
