Crane Track Wheel Forging

By Admin

Crane track wheel forgings refer to forged components of track wheels used in lifting machinery. They are usually made of high-strength alloy steel or other suitable materials and are used to support and guide the movement of lifting machinery on rails. These wheels are usually made through a forging process to ensure they have sufficient strength and wear resistance to cope with the high-intensity working conditions of the crane during operation.

Manufacturing process:

  ● Material preparation: Select appropriate steel, cut and process it for subsequent forging and use.

  ● Forging: Steel is heated to high temperatures, forged and shaped into the desired shape and size.

  ● Heat treatment: The forged track wheel is subjected to high-temperature tempering and quenching treatment to improve its hardness and wear resistance.

  ● Machining: Finishing machining of track wheels, such as turning, drilling, etc., to obtain the required accuracy and shape.

  ● Non-destructive testing: Conduct non-destructive testing on the track wheels, such as ultrasonic flaw detection, magnetic particle testing, etc., to ensure their quality and safety.

Crane wheel forgings

Main feature:

  ● Since cranes need to bear heavy loads when working, rail wheel forgings usually need to have sufficient strength and load-bearing capacity to ensure the safe and stable operation of the crane.

  ● Have good wear resistance because they need to run on the track for a long time and withstand the friction and wear of the ground and track surface.

  ● It requires precise machining and heat treatment processes to ensure that its dimensional accuracy and material properties meet design requirements.

  ● The design needs to consider suitability for specific types of rails to ensure smooth operation of the crane on the rails.

  ● Easy to install and replace for maintenance when needed.


  ● Choose steel that meets the requirements and ensure it has sufficient strength and wear resistance.

  ● Master the correct forging temperature to avoid coarse grains or uneven structure caused by overheating or undercooling.

  ● Reasonable forging technology is used to ensure that the shape and size of the track wheels meet the requirements.

  ● Carry out the correct heat treatment process to improve the hardness and wear resistance of the track wheels.

  ● Ensure the processing accuracy of the track wheels and ensure their stability and safety during installation and use.

  ● Strict testing is carried out to ensure that the quality and safety of the track wheels meet the requirements.
