Simmons Machine Tool Corporation built its first automated railway wheel set maintenance shop for CSX Transportation in 1989. The modern wheel shop must address a wide range of variables in order to accommodate and process incoming railway wheel sets. Simmons is the only company in the world to offer a fully computer integrated solution for processing wheel sets with the least possible number of misfits: 0.1% or less.
The company's Production Control System (PCS) offers our customers complete monitoring and control over all wheel shop activities. Simmons has built semi-automated wheel repair shops for our customers in Australia, Canada, China, India, Mexico, Russia, and the USA in some of the most remote, harshest climatic regions in the world.
