‘For one, the European manufacturers still make hollow axles by drilling out the core, while Ural Vagon Zavod’s technological options allow for cast and forged items, which have higher productivity and strength parameters than the standard ones. Besides, our hollow axles are 70kg lighter than the standard make, which means the overall weight of a railcar goes down as well, the press service says.
