Spanish Company Forges Railroad Wheels on New Schuler Press
Nearly all forms of railway wheels can be preformed using the Schuler press. The main cylinder has a diameter of around 3 meters, and the respective hydraulic system contains 30,000 liters of hydraulic oil to help the cylinder do its work. The whole system requires 4 megawatts of power. Three robots cool the dies before, during and after the forming process and spray them with a water-graphite mixture.
