Side frame is one of the main structural elements of the bogie frame work which is manufactured by casting, with additional machining and riveting of wear-resistant plates. Side frame represents a major piece of a freight wagon bogie, which transmits the load on the axle through the axle box.
Bolster is a bridge between the two side frames in the construction of a freight wagon bogie. Bolster is so important that we must to ensure reliability and durability.
We have many kind of type side-frames and bolsters,We also can design new type which is meet your Spec or requirements.
n One bogie need two side frames,one bolster and two wheel sets to constituted.
n Our side frame and bolster have high level quality and strength,we also can recording your spec design new type to matching your special bogie.
n This two castings could be manufactured by different materials,and we also can according many different Spec,for example UIC, AAR, ASTM, BS, TB, and so on.
n According different axle load and different gauge,we have the ability to design the new type side frame and bolster to matching the bogie.

2. About us
In order to meet the rapid development of the economy and the need of the freight wagon market, the ministry of railways proposed that the railway freight transport should be high-speed and heavy-haul. Bolster and side frame are the key components of the freight wagon bogie. The product quality and reliability related to the safety of railway transportation directly.
With the increased of the running speed and the transport capacity, the process of production manufacturing and production quality of the bolster need higher requirements in order to ensure the reliability of the products. Therefore, it's important to prevent the casting defects during the casting process to ensure the bolster have sufficient strength and fatigue performance.
Tedrail has the capacity to manufacture the bolster, our team of engineers will design the bolster suited your needs.
