Regardless of a freight, a highspeed, a normal speed or a mass transit train – nobody wishes for an accident caused through derailing. In the event of an incident, due to a faulty bogie, the operation of a complete metro line can be interrupted followed by immediate negative news headlines in the press and social media. A worldwide topic is the reduction of wheel wearing in order to minimize the life cycle costs of a train.
 An important factor to reduce the mentioned problems and risks is to adjust and control the correct wheel load.

Approximately 100 bogies are currently tested on the Nencki NBT Coach every year. With the axle assembly stand, attached directly to the bogie test bench, the revised bogies are completely assembled and pre-adjusted

The completed bogie can be moved through a shifting device, directly from the axle assembly stand onto the bogie test bench. After the test is completed, the bogie is returned to the axle assembly stand and transferred in its lowered position to the final locomotive assembly by a self-propelled special vehicle.
