WELDING, LASER, PLASMA

At the present time the company OS Vrtky Jsc. pays a big attention to welding technics as well as verification of technologies due to continuous increasing of welding importance in rail vehicles production as well as repairing and refurbishing technologies.

CUTTING OF MATERIAL

LASER

The laser cutting machines allows to work with high-tech procedure in 2D system with high speed, accuracy and quality of cutting with very small temperature influence to material without need of further mechanical machining.

  • building-up welding of journals,
  • building-up welding of labyrinths

MMA method of arc welding

Sources - Minarc 150, WeldForce 3500, Kemppi Pro Evolution 4200, Fastmig 400 Synergic

Applications:

  • special repairs of cast-iron parts
  • welding of common structural parts

Preparation of material before welding

A big attention is paid to preparation of material before welding due to adherence to accuracy and quality of welded parts as well as accurately cutting of material:

Sources:

  • Press brakes with CNC control
  • Profile bending machines, tube bending machines with CNC control
  • Rounding machines of sheets with the possibility of conical surfaces rounding
  • Chamfering machines for edge chamfering

Companys development and strategy

At the present time the company introduces the robotization into the production of weldments due to reason of competitiveness. It is used in welding of frames of new passenger coaches as well as parts of weldments occuring in the production of wagons by robotized workplace. Moreover there is other project in progress the project for high speed spot resistance welding equipment of larger parts with SM Calvrde and JESVA CZ companies producers of special machines.

Others

The company OS Vrtky Jsc. owns the certificate from TV SD Industrie Servise GmbH Mnchen in compliance with DIN EN 15085-2: C1 standard for performing of welding works in the production of new rail vehicles, furthermore it owns the Certificate for welding process according to SN EN ISO 3834-2 from SVV Prague, Permission for welding of track vehicles, repairs and reconstructions of pressure vessels of track vehicles by welding from RD Bratislava EN 15 085-2 CL1.
