Safer, more efficient systems through cutting-edge technology

When it comes to protecting track performance, it pays to be proactive. Our Track Geometry Testing services give rail owners the chance to accurately pinpoint track geometry issues, allowing them to get ahead of the curve and eliminate issues before they result in delays or disruptions.  Our testing is powered by SolidTrack from Andian Technologies, an industry-leading software suite made especially for testing track geometry.

For every piece of rail we test, SolidTrack measures 40 separate geometry data points, including gauge, horizontal and vertical alignment, twist, warp and more. These pieces of data come together in real-time to accurately pinpoint track issues.

 

To meet the needs of all our clients, RailWorks offers two different geometry testing vehicles: a standard Geometry Inspection Vehicle for general track applications, and a Heavy Geometry Inspection Vehicle, to simulate vertical loads and gauge track strength.

 

Both of these turnkey services offer a robust range of benefits, including:

 

  • Real-time data collection instantly provides the information rail owners need to effectively correct defects.
  • Portable hi-rail vehicles allow for efficient entry and exit from rail systems, as well as testing from both directions.
  • Mechanical gauge contact allows us to test track in adverse weather conditions, and even in the presence of debris or excessive vegetation.
  • Powerful reporting tools let you quickly pinpoint important locations on your track. Reports can be easily exported to popular formats, including PDF, KLM and CSV.
  • Archival features can be used to evaluate track degradation, as well as wide gauge, surface and alignment defects.
