The TREAD ASSISTANT was developed by the industry experts at nowa3k GmbH. The patented, combined laser/light section method allows for fast and precise evaluation of wheel wear while the train is passing or inside the depot. For AuE Kassel, the innovative test system is the perfect addition to the alignment and measurement systems in the automotive sector.
Within 120 seconds, the system compares the measured data to the saved set values and provides the basis for efficient and reliable maintenance scheduling. The system's sturdy sensor housings are mounted directly on the rail. No special rails or changes to the superstructure are necessary.
The TREAD ASSISTANT is more than a computerized measurement system. Designed as a flexible technology platform from the very beginning, it can be complemented with a remote control functionality, different bogie-mounted components can be integrated and it can be used together with wheel load control or vibration monitoring devices.
