AUTOMATIC DEFECT EVALUATION
WITH THE UTMOST PRECISION
The "Defects" CALIPRI C4X module helps users distinguish between critical and non-critical surface defects. Flat spots and spalling are evaluated with the non-contact measurement device, which is based on laser light section technology. An acoustic guide helps the user to position the measurement device. During the measurement operation itself, the sensor is simply aimed at the defect – there is no need to apply or precisely plot it. If there is a signal, it is a critical defect and the width and depth are calculated. After the measurement, the width and depth of the defect are shown on the sensor and the tablet PC and are automatically compared to the limit values entered.
RESULTS TAKING CENTER STAGE
NON-CONTACT MEASUREMENT AND DOCUMENTATION OF DEFECTS
- Split-second results
- Highly accurate measured data
- Automatic defect determination
- Multifunctional measurement device
The "Wheel Defects" module makes it possible to carry out highly accurate evaluations of flat spots and spalling on railway vehicle wheels, rails and switches. There is no need to attach or precisely plot the measurement device. In this way, you can easily and quickly distinguish between critical and non-critical defects. Due to the technology used (laser light sectioning), the measurement of the height and width of a wheel or rail defect is carried out free from human error. The measured data is available digitally for the transmission and printing of reports. Because of the unique modular concept, you can carry out other measurement tasks in addition to defect measurements (e.g. wheel profile measurements).
Calipri measurement devices are approved and used i.a. in Germany (DB), Austria (ÖBB), Switzerland (SBB), France (SNCF), China (Chengdu Railway Bureau) and the Czech Republic (SŽDC).Download data sheet
