Wheel Wear Measuring Gauges
Rolling stock maintenance tools are an assembly of two wheels that are fixed to the axle and do not have independent movement. There are flanges of the inner side which act as guides for the wheels to play on railway tracks and act against derailment. Locomotive wheels undergo heavy Linear and transverse forces subjecting them to wear and tear. As part of normal wear and tear, flange defects tend to crop up over a period of time e.g., Thin flange, Deep flange, Sharp flange, Less radius at root of flange etc.
