Wheel Rail Interaction (WRI) 2019
Simmons Machine Tool Corporation is attending the 2019 Wheel Rail Interaction (WRI) Conference this June 18-21 in New Orleans. We are a conference sponsor and will have an exhibition table in the ExpoZone - so stop by to discuss new wheel set maintenance and production projects.
Product Development: The Stanray M-Series' Updated Cutter Body Design
The Stanray® TN-84C Underfloor Wheel Truing Machine's milling cutter body design has been through surprisingly few changes since its first iteration in 1949. The cutter body, which holds multiple cutting inserts, rotates rapidly while the workpiece (in this case, a wheel) rotates slowly.
Product Development: Wheel Boring Integrated Measurement
Simmons' commitment to accurate and precise wheel set measurement in the railway wheel shop environment is well documented. Measurement data that is free of operator error leads to more efficient and safe wheel set maintenance and production practices.
It's time to celebrate the holiday season while looking back on another successful year! We at Simmons Machine Tool Corporation wish you all the best during the holidays. Thank you for your support in 2018, and here's to a healthy and prosperous 2019.
