‘PIE’ Laser Wheel Profilometer Model LPM-5 (Advanced Version) designed specifically to work as per Indian Railway Standards. The profilometer measures wheel profile very quickly by laser scanning without any contact with the wheel tread. The accompanying Android app displays the profile, wheel wear parameters and logs data.
Wheel Profile Recorders / Gauges
Wheel profile gauges are designed for measurement of the tread profile of rolling stock wheels. These gauges are used for measuring geometrical parameters of flanges, tyre and rim thickness, and full profile of the wheel. Measurements can be performed directly on wheel sets without their roll-out. Contactless methods avoid common errors and measurements can also be saved in the gauge memory through recorders for analysis.
Wheel profile gauges allow measurement and information to be stored for access at a later date. The contactless models allow for laser scanning and the android based apps display and continuously log data.
