Mein letzter Beitrag in diesem Faden (AI-unterstützt, da wir schon mal bei dem Thema sind):
In the context of a wheel stacker for railway wheels, the terms "mandrel" and "spindle" can be used interchangeably to refer to the cylindrical component that is inserted through the center of a wheel to provide support during storage. Both mandrels and spindles serve the same basic function of supporting the wheel and preventing deformation or damage to the rim.
However, in some cases, the term "mandrel" may be used specifically to refer to a component that is used for the precise alignment of wheels during maintenance or repair operations. In this context, a mandrel may be designed to fit tightly within the wheel's bore, providing a precise reference point for the wheel's position and ensuring that it is aligned correctly.
On the other hand, the term "spindle" may be used more broadly to refer to any type of cylindrical component that is used to support a wheel, regardless of whether it is being used for alignment purposes or not.
In general, both mandrels and spindles can be used effectively in a wheel stacker for railway wheels, and the specific terminology used to describe them may depend on the context and intended use of the device.
