|To better help you with your industrial rail car, trucks, wheels and axles needs and questions, we have put together a list of frequently asked questions for your information.
Q: Can wheels be repaired instead of replacing?
A: Yes, but the wheels can only be welded with a submerged arc welding process with a max buildup of approximately 1” depending on application and then machined to contour.
Q: How long can I expect a repaired wheel to last?
A: Equivalent to the life of a new wheel at a fraction of the cost.
Q: What is the turn-around time for a repaired wheel?
A: Approx. 2 weeks from pickup on welded wheels.
Q: Do you pick up and deliver?
A: Yes, within our regional area (call for details) and we can assist in arranging for pick up outside our area.
Q: Explain the welding process?
A: Our submerged arc welding process was developed and perfected here over 40 years ago and has been widely accepted in many applications and industries. (call us for further explanation)
Q: Can you quote prices on-line or over the phone?
A: Due to the unique specifications of each project we can offer estimated prices on the phone or online but in order to quote a firm price we would need good drawing or to quote the project after a visual inspection.
