NBC has been working on manufacturing bearings for Indian Railways since 1952. As a mark of professional expertise and mechanics, the NBC has developed and designed various types of bearings for locomotives, meter gauge coaches and wagons. Meeting the continuous requirement to support the wide range of rail networks is one of the constant efforts that have contributed to growth and innovation.
The Railways is no doubt a lifeline of our country as it covers thousands of miles offering convenience to people who want to travel from one place to another for various purposes. From a local train to diesel engine locomotives for Indian Railways, millions of bearings are manufactured and are in service currently in trains. Since it covers longer journeys and varied milestones, it is definite that expertise, experience and precision are required to enable safe and efficient operation of numerous trains, engines, railway systems, etc.
Railway Axle Boxes are a crucial part of a railway vehicle that houses axles. They also act as supports for the wheels and suspension system making them essential for powering machinery systems. The box contains various parts that help keep the axle aligned and prevent it from turning. It also keeps the wheel on its axis by holding them firmly against each other with a bearing or bushings allowing rotation. The NBC has manufactured bearing boxes and axles for popular locomotive trains like Rajdhani, Egyptian Railway wagons, Diesel Locomotives, etc.
The Axle Box Bearings are quite intensive and have high load-bearing which makes them safe and durable for use in railway locomotives. These bearings are manufactured with steel as they can have better capability to withstand pressure, speed and load. Since modern railways are progressing towards advanced mechanisms due to the requirement of high speed and increased safety measures, the NBC has adapted itself well in terms of research and development of bearings specially designed to meet the requirements well.
The Indian Railways is quite intensive and has wide operations in covering the length and breadth of the country being the largest rail Network in the world. From specific developments in machinery to upgrades in technology, the railways are keeping up with the modern requirements and needs through NBC’s support of manufacturing varied types of bearings. As bearings always remain the crucial parts of machinery, the role of perfect design and development cannot be neglected in any case to power such a huge railway system.
