To extend our service portfolio, mgw Service GmbH & Co. KG now offers wheelset turning for railway vehicles at its base in Krefeld. The machining is carried out on mgw Service’s own Mobiturn (by Messrs. Hegenscheidt) and will also be available at weekends, and after the second stage of expansion is complete, at night as well – without extra charge.

For this facility, a purpose-built workshop is equipped with two 55-metre (180′) tracks and a 16-tonne overhead crane with a modern system of lifting jacks (four jacking points) capable of lifting locomotives weighing 140 tonnes. In early 2010, the machinery was supplemented by four further lifting jacks each of 25-tonne capacity for lifting multiple unit vehicles.
