Saftey and reliability are the decisive criteria for the high-speed railway traffic of the future. The in-use internationally proven plants make it possible to check wheelsets semi-automatically or fully automatically for cracks int he structure or on other stress injuries.
The objective of the testing is the detection of transversal cracks in the wheel shaft. The particularly crack-endangered areas are the cross-section variation considered, especially on the wheel seats and the brake disk seats to the shaft.
The modular-constructed testing plant is characterized by the following features:
- Using conventional or phased array technology
- Equipment depending on cycle time with 1 up to 6 lances
- the same software user interface for all BIP-ultrasonic testing plants
