Application in wheel-set measuring stations

While the above mentioned application is only used for determination of the characteristical parameters of the wheel profile, the use of several sensors at the 2- or 3-axis-positioning unit allows for determination of nearly all wheel-set parameters, e.g. profile determination, impact measuring, brake-disk measuring, wheel flat detection, etc.

By entering the wheel-set identification all parameters, which are to be determined, are being fixed, automatically measured and registered. The laser sensors' flexibility with regard to deviation, measuring distance, and measuring range also allows for optional resetting and retrofitting of already operating measuring stations, working in contact method.
