The requirements for rail vehicles are very demanding: it is essential that they operate safe, dependably and reliably despite increasing cost pressure, continuous maintenance and repairs. Specifically for smaller fleet vehicles, investing in complex inspection techniques or specialized personnel is usually not economical.

Therefore, Framatome Qualicon has mobilized the examination of wheel set axles. The mobile ultrasonic inspection system, developed by GMH Prüftechnik GmbH, makes it possible to test wheel set axles in an installed, assembled or unassembled state. This includes the following longitudinal drills:
• diameter 30 mm
• diameter 40 mm to 60 mm
• diameter 60 mm to 90 mm.

Your Benefits

  • Inspection in mounted condition saves time and costs
  • High testing reliability
  • Rapid re-availability of rail vehicles
  • Reproducible results due to data acquisition and a high level of positioning precision
