Customer benefits

The customer had to introduce changes to the rail production process for safety reasons. The front and back chamfers were being done manually, which turned out not to be an ideal option. The tool from HEULE and the resulting machine processing can prevent the costs of the manual set-up. The quality of the chamfers meets the customer’s requirements.

With HEULE’s solution, chamfering was implemented on the existing machines and with the existing equipment. This prevented very high investment in new equipment.
