SWL-400 CNC Wheel Lathe

The Simmons CNC Wheel Lathe (SWL-400) is a rugged and reliable CNC wheel
lathe machine for truing solid wheel or tired wheel treads of worn wheel sets of
railway transit and freight cars, diesel railcars, and locomotives. The wheel lathe
removes flat spots, shelling, and re-cuts the wheel profile to pre-programmed
specifications. All operations can be initiated by a pushbutton control from the
operator's control pendant. Clamping and holding of the wheel set is
accomplished hydraulically while the profiling tools are controlled by ball screw
drives and electric servo motors.
The wheel lathe is a rear-loading, in/out, dual drive design, leaving the center bed
open for options such as wheel set elevators and chip collection systems. The
headstocks, tool carriages, and bed are heavily reinforced steel fabrications
stress relieved and normalized after welding. The right and left headstock face
plates are independently driven through modular gear reduction boxes to
maintain the constant high torque required.
The rail vehicle's wheels are clamped between hydraulic driver dogs mounted to
the face plates to ensure no slippage occurs during the machining process. The
right moving or clamping headstock is guided by low maintenance linear guide
ways. The wheel lathe is supplied complete with all tooling and programming
required for the customer’s productEOT Crane Working Principle
EOT Crane Working Principle system consists of three working movements: crane
hook up and down lifting, trolley lateral movement and crane long traveling
longitudinal motion.

Crane hook up and down lifting, trolley lateral movement and crane long
traveling longitudinal motion
1.Transmission of hoisting system: the driving force of hoisting mechanism is
from motor. It transmits power to the high speed shaft end of reducer by gear
coupling, compensation shaft and brake-wheel coupling. Then through reducer to
reduce the high revolution of motor to the required revolution, and output by lowspeed shaft of reducer. The ring gear of drum transmit driving force to drum set,
then through wire ropes and pulleys drive crane hook up and down, so as to finish
the lifting of the heavy objects up and down.

2.Transmission of crane Trolley traveling system: the driving force of crane trolley
is from motor. It transmits power to the high speed shaft end of reducer by brake-

Transmission of crane traveling system: the driving force of crane trolley is from motor. The basic parts of a rivet gun are the regulator. Working with a rivet gun can increase productivity without degrading the quality of the finished product.. They differ from air hammers only by the level of driving force. And then by half gear coupling. The controlled air flows into the piston through the opened valve. controlled by regulator. A rivet gun is a special type of tool that is used to drive rivets into metallic objects to bind them. passes through the throttle valve. compensation shaft and half gear coupling. the underlying concept used in both the tools is same. And then by full gear coupling joint with crane driving wheel shaft. so that finish trolley transport heavy objects by lateral movement. The piston starts moving due . it uses pressurized gas to drive the force. How the Rivet Gun Works There are various sizes and shapes of rivet guns with different handles and grips. 3. throttle valve. so as to drive the trolley driving wheels rotating. so as to drive the crane driving wheels rotating. When a rivet is used to fasten metal pieces. the half gear coupling joint with trolley driving wheels. Then through reducer to reduce the high revolution of motor to the required revolution.wheel coupling. Rivet guns that are used for fastening steel parts are quite large while those used in aircraft assembling are comparatively small. so that finish bridge transport heavy objects by lateral movementLeave a comment Basic Skills for Metal Riveting written by: Asheesh • edited by: KennethSleight • updated: 7/12/2011 A rivet gun is a very useful tool that fastens metal parts with rivets. compensation shaft and half gear coupling. The regulator is used for adjusting the amount of air entering the tool. compensation shaft. There is more to the operation of a rivet gun is more than just learning the triggering mechanism. The air. and rivet set. piston. trigger. Then through reducer to reduce the high revolution of motor to the required revolution.e. When the trigger is pressed. This tool is also known as a pneumatic hammer because it is a pneumatically powered tool. the gun produces the head of the rivet while a bucking bar is used to tighten tail. It transmits power to the high speed shaft end of reducer by brake-wheel coupling. A trigger present in the handgrip controls this throttle valve. and output by lowspeed shaft of reducer. i. the throttle valve opens immediately. and output by low-speed shaft of reducer.

to this pressurized air and opens a port from where air starts to escape. Air fittings are located on the rivet gun. Turn on the air compressor. The buck then deforms the tail of the rivet fastening it in place. The moving piston strikes the rivet set on the tip of the rivet gun. FROM AROUND THE WEB Your hobby of cooking can earn you rewards!

A spring then returns the piston to its original position. find them and add air tool oil to them. Follow this procedure to lubricate all of the moving parts of the gun. This force is responsible for pushing the rivet towards the work piece against the buck. Equipment Required Scrap piece of wood Safety glasses Air tool oil Drill Compressor Riveting Preparing Rivet Gun for the Operation Lubricating the inside of the rivet gun is very important.

Drilling of the holes should be done after selecting style of the riveting (for example straight or zigzag style). If you want to apply a lap joint then place one part over another. Secure the desired size drill bit into the drill motor and drill the required number of holes through the metal pieces. Precision setting of the rivet gun is very important in this process. Place the combined work pieces on the table with a piece of wood beneath of them. Set the Rivets into the Holes Insert rivets into the holes you drilled. Precautions When Using Rivet Gun The rivet gun should be lightly oiled every day before use.AppNext JFK Exposed! Hidden Letters Reveal His Secret Affair Radar Online Recommended by Attach the air line to the air fittings of the rivet gun. Depress the trigger when the head of the rivet rests flush on the surface of the metal piece. prepare the work pieces that need to be fastened. for a butt joint butt the parts using other metal pieces over them on both sides. Check the back side of the rivet to assure that the back side is tightened accurately. Decide on the type of joint you will use. You will need to drill holes in the metal pieces. Press the trigger so that the O-rings present in the rivet gun are also lubricated. Prepare the Work Pieces Next. . You have to position it onto the metal pieces at a 90 degree angle so that maximum pressure can be applied to the metal pieces and there is no slippage.

it protects the mast cylinders hoses as well as preventing any goods falling through the mast and hitting the operator.
