Highly precise profile measure­ment for predictive maintenance

CALIPRI non-contact profile measurement devices meet the demands of the railway industry for predictive maintenance with a reproducible and simple measurement method. Whether you are working with wheels, brakes, rails or switches – we have the right solution for any measurement task.

 

CALIPRI profile measuring devices are approved according to national and international standards (JCGM100: 2008, DIN V ENV 13005: 1999-06, DIN EN 13715: 2001-01, DIN EN 15313: 2016-09, DIN 27201-9: 2017-06), certified and used among others (e.g.) in Germany (DB), Austria (ÖBB), Switzerland (SBB), France (SNCF), China (Chengdu Railway Bureau) and the Czech Republic (SŽDC).

Applications

The multifunctional CALIPRI C4x series enables the combination of several inspection tasks (measurement modules) in one measurement device. For example, if you combine the modules for wheel profile, brake disk, wheel diameter and wheel clearance, you have a measurement device for evaluating a complete wheelset. CALIPRI Prime, on the other hand, focuses on wheel profile measurements and thus replaces conventional mechanical gages.

Customer voices

Learn more about the use of our CALIPRI systems by renowned rail companies in the areas of passenger and goods transport.

STADLER SERVICE, Switzerland, Life time

"Calipri enables us to record and assess the mileage of the individual wheelsets and bogies, and then incorporate the projected mileages between the individual reprofilings into our maintenance and repair schedule. We can also show our client what condition the wheel profiles on their vehicles are in at any time." (translated)

Michael Vogt
SRS Wil Site Manager, Stadler Service AG, Wil, Switzerland

S-Bahn Berlin GmbH, Germany, Service Team

Head of the Calipri measuring system, SBB Passenger Transport, Zürich, Switzerland

Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe (BVB) Switzerland

"Calipri has opened up a whole new dimension of wheelset management in our workshops. In the past we were only able to rate wear values as "good" or "bad", but now we can record complete profiles and evaluate wear patterns thoroughly. This makes it possible to take targeted measures to minimize wear and maximize mileage." (translated)
