Special Measurement Instruments

RIFTEK manufactures a variety of measurement instrument systems for special purposes including laser scanners to measure the inner diameter, gun barrel linearity and inner diameter measurement systems for smooth gun barrels, inclinometers and gyroscopes (i.e. angular speed sensors).

Speed and distance sensors ISD-3, ISD-4, ISD-5 SERIES

This range offers a variety of non – contact sensors to measure the speed and distance of any moving object.

These sensors are application for:

  • automobile and railway transport
  • metallurgy
  • cable, chemical
  • pulp and paper
  • textile and wood industries
  • in automated control systems
  • cutting and accounting systems

Measurement instruments for railway transport










This range consists of a variety of profilometers to measure the full profile of a rail wheel flange including the thickness, slope, height, rim/tire thickness as well as measuring the full profile of the wheel roll surface.

  • This range features:
  • railway wheel profile gauge, IKP SERIES
  • wheel diameter measuring gauge, IDK SERIES
  • back-to-back distance measuring gauge, IMR SERIES
  • disk brakes profile gauge, IKD SERIES
  • rail profile measurement gauge, PRP SERIES

Other instruments include Video processing IP-cores and Hardware to detect, and track the movements of objects.
