From power transmission to material handling equipment problems, with Xtek’s cutting-edge machining capabilities, they will have the solution.
Established in 1909, Xtek has revolutionised the steel industry by improving the metallurgical properties of steel to provide a higher quality, stronger and more durable product. This unique heat-treating process is called the Tool Steel Process (TSP).
The TSP process has been used to improve the strength of a range of machined products, such as:
- Overhead crane parts
- Gear couplings
- Universal joints
- Track or train wheels
- Crane wheels & mining wheels
- Mill gearing and pinions
- Drive shafts
- Brake drums & wheels
- Rope drums
- Pinch rolls
- Special purpose processing rolls
Xtek Crane Wheels
Xtek crane wheels are manufactured from high-quality vacuum de-gassed carbon steel.
The unique in-house, heat-treated process which is a closely guarded secret provides a uniform contour hardness at the tread and flange wear surfaces, while maintaining a softer core to resist shock loads. This revolutionary process reduces flange fracture and improves resistance to pitting and spalling.
This unique manufacturing process offers reduced ongoing maintenance of the wheel and wheel assemblies, improved life of your rail, up to 40% additional load capacity over rim toughened wheels.
Xtek wheels can be used for all types of cranes.
Statewide Bearings can also offer full wheel assemblies for cranes. Thanks to our Australia-wide workshop capability, we can provide full in-house component manufacture and assembly of Xtek manufactured wheels for a complete wheel assembly supply to the end-user.
Xtek Rail and Track Wheels
Xtek’s experience from designing and developing crane wheels has allowed them to develop track and rail car wheels with many unique applications.
Being manufactured from the same high-quality de-gassed carbon steel and heated using the same in-house process means you can have confidence that these wheels are high quality products.
Regardless of the application, the track and rail wheel design provides a uniform contour hardness on the wear surfaces, while maintaining a ductile core to resist shock loads. They are also resistant to fractures and wear, with the design aiming to resist pitting and spalling.
Xtek’s expertise as rail wheel manufacturers means they can provide the correct rail wheel profile you need, while they can also deliver quality double flanged rail wheels.
Every Xtek hardened steel rail wheel is specially designed to withstand extreme conditions – maximising its resistance to the damaging forces at work in heavy industrial applications – and provide stability during transport.
Xtek rail and track wheels are able to be used in many different applications (from mechanical through to entertainment) and require less maintenance, offer improved rail life and provide a higher carrying capacity.

When it comes to manufacturing steel train wheels and mining cart wheels, Xtek aims to deliver tailored solutions that will work for your business.
Capable of delivering to anyone – from commercial sectors to government agencies – these are the most reliable and sought-after rail wheels in Australia.
