Milling Work on Bridge Bearing Contact Faces

Bridge bearing of the Thyratal bridge

The contact faces of the bridge bearings had deformed due to previous welding work.

The goal was to flatly mill the 36 contact faces on a total of 18 segments.

Because of the components’ size (approximately 35 m long and 15 m wide) and the location of the faces to be machined, processing on a stationary machine was not possible.

The milling work was implemented with a mobile milling machine at our customer’s workshop and directly on location.
