Resilient Railway Wheels
GMT specialise in providing high quality shock and noise reduction products to the railway industry, including Resilient Railway Wheels. These wheels can provide a significant reduction in noise and vibration through the use of rubber between the outer and inner metals.
Resilient Wheels offer other benefits such as lower operating costs. This is because they prevent unnecessary wear to the wheel and the track due to their elastic properties. There are three main types of Resilient Wheels available to order:
- Bonded rubber discs- Used in pure shear providing good deflection for small loads (<35KN) generally used on lower speed applications (<50km/hr).
- Pre-compressed rubber rings
- Rubber blocks- Used in pure compression providing small deflections (<0.8mm) for high frequency and can be used on higher speed applications.
