Railway engineering

RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION

Subject:

The requirements in railway construction are increasing continuously. Specifically, high speed tracks put very high demand on track geometry and therewith on track construction. A tamping machine requires exact information about the condition and position of the track ahead to make the required corrections and to work precisely and efficiently

 

Measuring task:

The positioning errors of the track shall be measured with a mobile measuring unit. The measuring data shall then be used by the tamping machine.

ALIGNMENT OF THE ETCS-RADAR ON A LOCOMOTIVE

Subject:

The Doppler-Radar which is measuring the exact speed of a train is an important part of the ETCS train control system in Europe. 2 such radars are mounted under each locomotive. To ensure a correct functioning, they must be precisely aligned.  

 

Measuring task: 

Precise alignment and regular checking of the parallelity of the lower side of the radars to the rail.
