Rails

The production of rails places high demands on contour accuracy. Rails, as complex products with tight tolerances on contour accuracy, require precise measurements. These demands on precision result from the safety requirements of the product itself, especially in the production of rails for high speed trains.

As a leader in the acquisition, representation and combination of complex key characteristics that provide relevant information for control of production, we draw on years of experience in this specialized field. In particular, through cooperation with leading rail producers, our measurement systems are mature instruments fully capable of covering individual requirements. Key characteristics relevant to quality are calculated from measured contours in real time to the highest precision. This technology has been developed for all types of rails.
