Rail Surface Evaluation

Rail Surface

KLD Labs offers an automated machine vision systems (RailScope) for assessing the rail surface.

KLD Labs’ system incorporates the latest machine vision technology to collect and analyze high resolution images of the rail surface all while traveling at track speeds. The rail surface is damaged to poor wheel/rail interface, high contract stresses, wheel burns, corrugations, etc. The video cameras capture full longitudinal images of the rail section to aid in the planning of rail grinding and defect detection evaluation.

The RailScope sensor heads are mounted beneath a railway vehicle. The central computer and peripherals are housed inside the vehicle. As the vehicle travels down the track, high-resolution images of the running section are processed and stored on the central computer. This information is stored internally and transfer off the vehicle to enable data playback and analysis.
