Rail Profile

Rail Profile

Ever-rising running speeds in railway lines require an intensification of rail profile control. Knowing the rail wear condition is crucial as it is strictly related to the key safety aspects of the railway infrastructure.

Along with the essential measurements like head width and crown radius, the wear at the top and the sides can be determined by comparison with the standard profile. It is also possible to measure the complete cross-section of a rail head and calculate the key data for both horizontal and vertical wear parameters.

Full Rail Profile

Integrated with Inertial or Chord Based Track Geometry, the Full Rail Profile features cutting-edge lasers and video camera technology provide accurate and immediate reporting on the profile and wear condition of the rail whilst traveling at track speeds. The cameras capture full cross-sectional rail profiles from the base/web fillet area up to the top-of-rail surface to allow comprehensive and accurate rail measurements and a functional integration with Track Geometry measured parameters.

Full Rail Profile for Grinding

A specific aid to the grinding process. The high performance dedicated measurement system facilitates the maintenance and grinding operations to immediately compare rail grinding templates while traveling at track speeds. It is also possible to measure the worn area of the rail head and to automatically recognize the rail type. Grinding reports are available upon request.

TecnoRail - Portable System

TecnoRail is a portable, lightweight tool for measuring rail profile in specific areas of the track. A large LCD touch screen allows the operator to view graphically and numerically the wear and area of difference as well as to compare the measured and nominal rail profiles.
Optionally the system can measure both rail gauge and super-elevation depending on the needs of the operator. Measurement is based on non-contact optical technology and covers the internal and top rail profiles.
