Force-Measurement Application for Railway EKM 305

Measuring systems for quality assurance of railway vehicles

Due to their size and weight, railway vehicles require an incredible degree of dimensional and manufacturing accuracy – A.S.T. delivers the key for the highest precision: Starting from the single measuring cell, modules and measuring systems up to calibration units, the complete precision chain comes from a single source.

EKM 305 – Systems for the quality assurance of rolling stock, providing the low-torsion (low-tension) position of railway vehicles and concomitant determination of forces acting between the car body and the chassis according to DIN25043-4.

Our system solutions accompany you from body shell production over the final assembly to maintenance and repair processes on the rail vehicle. For this purpose costumized solutions have been developed for you depending on the condition of rolling stock.

With the specially developed software CBM305 (Car Body Measurement) and the compatible measuring technology for geometrical measurement according to DIN25043 you have the possibility to combine both system solutions.This means a single system can be used to determine all parameters of the low-torsion position, the thicknesses of the shims on the bogies, and the entire spatial profile.
