3D Metrology Systems – Automation – Railroad Track & Rail Inspection

Increasing demand for fully traceable and automated inspection of railroad track and rail due to increases in the running speeds of railway lines has meant that railway operators and maintenance providers need measurement solutions tailored to their industry. EDMIS offers customized inspection systems that measure rail wear condition as well as standard form measurements like head width, web size, foot height and crown radius using our advanced 3D scanning and measurement technologies. A complete cross-section of the rail head can also be recorded and compared back to the nominal form for overall rail dimension inspection and wear monitoring.
