Found Damage to Your Rail System? Look at Your Wheels

If you’ve noticed problems with your cars traversing across your rails or your crane “racking” while in operation, one obvious place to check is your wheels. It is possible that your wheels have worn, causing damage. Constant use and slight skews in operation causes wear and tear on any flanged rail wheel system. Regular inspections can help thwart downtime for a broken wheel or rail.

Replace your worn flanged rail wheels with new, superior high-grade forged steel ones from Rockett, Inc. We utilize 1045 grade forged steel, manufactured with precision CNC machining, resulting in a long-lasting, durable wheel. Besides our standard wheels, we can develop custom wheels according to your exact specifications for a variety of applications.

Tips to Keep in Mind with Your Flanged Rail Wheels

If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, then keeping these tips in mind will save you time, energy, money, and stress down the road:

  1. Inspect your wheels often to check for wear.
  2. As you do your inspections, look at both the wheels and the rail for potential odd wear patterns.
  3. If you notice that the tread has worn down on your wheels, get them replaced as soon as possible.
  4. Replace any railing that has worn down to a flat surface.
  5. Ensure the runway and rail are aligned and always in good condition.
