Axlebox casing

Most of all manufacturers of transport equipment, rollers and wheels are the ones who use axlebox casings. Their outside surface provides the running surface for the running element. The guaranteed circularity makes for optimal running qualities, which frequently allow for a use of axle box casings as plain bearing without roller bearing. Brass, steel or stainless steel is the most frequently used materials. The typical dimensions below are those most frequently used:

For Seeberger there are no special lengths. All lengths from 0.079-19.685 Inch (2-500 mm) are standard. The linear tolerance of the standard-axlebox casing corresponds to the DIN-mean – this keeps costs down more than tight tolerances do. Naturally the tolerances of the axlebox casing may be cut to size to comply with the requirements.

Outer diameter

The outer diameter may be specified, upon request even with minimum and maximum tolerances. However, standard tolerances are the most cost-effective solution.

Inner diameter

The inner diameter may be specified with minimum and maximum tolerances.

Wall thickness

We are able to realise almost any wall thickness.


We are able to supply almost any surface.
