At this year’s InnoTrans in Berlin, Bega Special Tools presents the latest tools for easy and safe installation and removal of bearings and other drive components in railway vehicles. The Dutch company offers solutions for removing and installing bearing rings, railway bearings such as TBU and SP bearing sets, train wheels, train rims, labyrinth rings, inner rings, brakes, gears and more.
Of the latest heater design is the Betex MF Quick-Heater 3.0, a multifunctional middle frequency induction heater for both mounting and dismounting bearings and other parts. There is no limit to the size or shape of the components as the heater works with fixed or flexible hose-type inductors. The MF Quick-Heater generator is compact and easy to move around. It is clean and operates very quietly. Heating cycles can be stored on a computer, generators can be linked to work together. This method saves valuable time as it can be deployed very rapidly, needs fewer actions and can heat faster than conventional methods.
Besides the Betex MF Quick-Heater, the offering includes Betex heaters for mounting. Designed for industrial use, these heaters have a robust design, are ergonomic and maintenance free.
Betex hydraulic industrial pullers have a capacity from 4 to 150 tons. They are known for their unique design with integrated pump and cylinder, self-centering arms and jaw construction, providing safety and convenience for the removal of train wheels and gears.
Betex industrial hydraulic equipment such as pumps, cylinders and jacks up to 700 bar are compatible with major international brands.
“All tools and methods of our Betex range have one thing in common: they are designed to make the job easier, faster and above all safer,” says Henk van Essen, Bega Special Tool’s Managing Director. “If you are involved in the maintenance of rolling stock then you know the importance of having the right tools for the right job.”
