Brake Pads Wear

Brake Pads Wear

Brake pads are designed to wear. Nevertheless the wear rate has to be monitored in order to maximize the brake life and prevent failures caused by an inefficient interaction with the wheels that can damage them.

Wear trends can then be established and used for predictive maintenance. The rail wheel, and in particular the brake and its interaction with the wheel, represent a decisive factor in the sphere of safety and quality of railway transport.

Brake Pads Wear

In one step, through the use of non-contact technology, the system measures the brake pad wear of both outgoing and incoming trains, and provides the base information to run an appropriate maintenance plan, keeping brake pads within the quality standards. The processing system performs the analysis of the measured parameters and comparison to defined tolerance thresholds. Alarms are automatically sent to the maintenance staff when unusual conditions are detected.
