Non Destructive Examination (NDE) and Inspection Methods and Systems for wheels applicable to rail and other industries

Main description

Wheel set axles are exposed to high loads. The safety of the passengers, the safe transport of dangerous goods and the maximum availability of the rail vehicles demand high requirements on the non-destructive testing (NDT), which has to be time-saving, precise and reliable. The Solid Axle Inspection System (VPS) enables time-saving examinations of solid wheel set axles. Due to state-of-the-art ultrasonic phased array technology with innovative UT equipment and software, for example SAFT (Synthetic Aperture Focusing Technique), the safety of freight and passenger carriers can be reliably evaluated.
