Comsteel produces forged and rolled railway wheels to International standards for all classes of Stacker/Reclaimer machines. In particular the company is at the forefront in developing products for higher mechanical loading. New materials and designs for specific applications such as high hardness and wear resistant Track wheels have been developed by Comsteel.
Total control of the manufacturing process begins in steelmaking. Molycop employs the latest melting, refining and casting technologies including vacuum degassing in the production of high quality ingots. A modern C.A.D / C.A.M system links design flexibility to manufacturing at the shop floor by generating tooling for Forging and Rolling and machining programs for the CNC Wheel machining centres. Sophisticated inspection techniques and accredited quality assurance systems ensure optimum product quality for our customers.
Forged wheels of any shape from 650mm to 1250mm diameter
Accreditations: The Comsteel range is independently accredited to manufacture and supply products in accordance with ISO 9001:2000. Product quality is supported by in-house chemical, mechanical and non-destructive testing laboratories, which are fully endorsed by the National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA) to ISO/IEC 17025:1999, further assuring product integrity.
Standards: Only products that conform to all contractual requirements and to stringent internal quality standards are provided to the customer. Standards Forged and rolled Track Wheels and Gear Blanks can be manufactured to all recognised international standards. Tailored material solutions to suit customer requirements are also available.
Specialised Materials: With in-house steelmaking and experienced technical personnel, Molycop has developed many specialised materials for specific applications. In cooperation with Australian heavy haul rail operators Comsteel developed the first microalloy wheels over 25 years ago and these materials are still the industry leader in wear and defect propagation performance. Comsteel micro-alloy wheels are proven in Locomotive, Passenger and Freight operations throughout Australia and many international operations. This experience allows Comsteel to tailor substitute materials for any track wheel or gear blank requirements.
