Real Time Rail Wheel Geometry Measurement

The system is designed for contactless automatic measurement of geometrical parameters of railway wheels and uses a combination of 2D laser scanners, mounted wayside in the track area.

The system can be easily installed at any type of rail infrastructure.

Real Time Rail Wheel Geometry Measurement Parameters

Riftek 3D Wheel

  • Wheel profiles
  • Flange height
  • Flange width
  • Flange angle
  • Rim thickness
  • Tread width
  • Back to back distance
  • Wheel diameter

The Real Time Rail Wheel Geometry Measurement measurement tool includes ten 2D laser scanners, RF625 Series (5 pcs for every track side) placed along the rails and calibrated into one common coordinate system. The measurement cycle starts when inductive sensor detects the wheel. As each wheel passes synchronized 2D laser scanners take wheel profiles at many sections.
All measurement readings are sent through Ethernet to control computer for profiles reconstruction and dimensions calculations. Finally all the data are collected in the host depot computer in wheel sets wear database.
