Trackage maintenance

A time-optimised recording of the rail condition gains more and more importance due to the increasingly short train sequence in the areas of newly built railtracks. Therefore, trackage measurements should ideally be integrated into the machining process, or they should be carried out by specialised measuring vehicles within the normal train sequence, i.e. they should be feasible at a speed of between 120 and 250 km/h. Also in this case, laser sensors, due to their non contact measuring value intake, their small size, and high measuring frequency, have gained special importance.
