The Delta Manufacturing’s RTS1000 Under-Floor Wheel Set Lathe and RTS2000 Above-Floor Wheel Set Lathe are effective and accurate machines that are designed to fit your fleet recommendations. With the RTS1000 Under-Floor Wheel Lathe there is no need to remove the truck assembly. Supports freight locomotives, passenger vehicles, trucks and single wheel sets (single wheel sets equivalent to a portal wheel lathe). The RTS2000 Above-Floor Wheel Lathe requires removal of the truck and will supports trucks from freight locomotives, passenger vehicles and single wheel sets (single wheel sets equivalent to a portal wheel lathe).  Both machines are CNC Controlled and include optional features.

These systems allow for quick maintenance on wheel sets, eliminating the cost of shipping and downtime that is associated with having wheel sets contoured elsewhere.

Delta’s RTS1000 or RTS2000 will provide a great cost savings to your company. On average, a set of wheels can take approximately 30-45 minutes to re-profile, depending on the condition of the wheel sets. This gives you the opportunity to create a wheel maintenance program, in turn lengthening the life of your wheels.
