NEW FURNACE FOR HEAT-TREATMENT OF WHEELS

Recent use of trains with faster speed and heavier load has created the need for improved heat treatment of wheels. This article describes how Japan's Sumitomo Metal Industries Ltd. replaced its obsolete and problem-ridden heat treating furnaces with bogie devices by new furnaces using the rapid gas heating method. As a result, it now takes only one hour to heat-treat the wheels in a trouble-free operation.
