MAE-Eitel: Most advanced wheel set assembly press for the railway market will be manufactured in America

ORWIGSBURG, Pa., June 3, 2015 /CNW/ -- MAE, with the acquisition of Eitel in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, will expand its manufacturing, sales, service, and engineering operations to include North America. This expansion will mean local content, AAR compliance, OSHA compliance, and all international certifications will be yours with every press produced.

Mr. Berhard Hoegner Sales Manager of MAE had this to say: 
Our revolutionary RADS-Series is a new generation of wheel set press, with special emphasis on quality and reliability of the assembly process. It has minimal lifecycle costs (maintenance, spare parts, etc.), requires no cooling, and uses minimal energy during the pressing operation. We have set the standard for the new generation of wheel set assembly presses, and we are the press of choice for high speed train applications, locomotives, and local traffic with their special requirements on accuracy, heavy weights, high productivity, and price.

PC control allows the press to be operated in conjunction with a sensitive sensory array which analyzes force and positioning to provide the basis for perfect control of the assembly process.

Also our software allows for detailed documentation of data, which insures that you meet all documentation requirements both locally and internationally.

Mr. Norm Walker, President of our North American Operations expressed the following sentiments:
This is automation and versatility at its finest, helping to improve work flow, adjustment to production needs, and helping eliminate the human error factor.

Our automatic pressing process includes the loading and unloading of the press by an automatic manipulator minimizing the influence of the operator, the risk of errors, and insuring safety to all elements involved in the pressing process – man, machine and wheel set. We also offer a wide diversity of other types of loading solutions.

So whether you consider your pressing process low tech or high tech look to the machine of the future. For more information contact our National Sales Manager by phone or e-mail.
