ULTRASONIC TESTING DEVICES FOR WHEELS AND AXLES
Safety and reliability are the decisive criteria for railway traffic. This is why bip technology has been focusing on the development and testing of non-destructive testing methods for many years. The company has acquired particular expertise in the manufacture of its own automatic ultrasonic testing systems for wheelset workshops or for testing on trains. Thanks to automated processes, high precision and individual planning, these are not only particularly thorough but also economical.
Whether hollow axles, solid axles or wheel discs - bip technology plants are successfully in use worldwide. They make it possible to test wheelsets semi-automatically or fully automatically for cracks in the structure or other load damage. Due to the output of A, B/C or TD images, the test results can be clearly read. Protocols and raw data can be stored and are thus verifiable.
Mobile underfloor ultrasonic testing device (SPE)
The movable underfloor ultrasonic testing system has been developed especially for railway operators to check the running surface of wheels against mechanical damages like cracks or volume defects direct on the whole train in the primary maintenance workshop.
Mobile Ultrasonic Testing of a hollow axle directly on a train
The mobile ultrasonic testing system for wheelset axles with longitudinal bore has been developed specially for railway operators with vehicles with same or very similar hollow axles and where the mobility and the height of investment is important. It can be either used direct on the vehicles or on separated wheelsets.
Stationary ultrasonic wheelset testing machine of wheel disc and axle in the workshop
The Ultrasonic Wheel Testing Machine (AURA - in German Automatic Ultraschall Radprüfung) is as the name says a machine which can do automatic ultrasonic flaw detection test on railway wheelsets the wheel tire. It is used in wheelset workshops. It can be integrated into a production line.
Ultrasonic underfloor testing station for wheels
The stationary ultrasonic wheel testing plant has been developed especially for railway operators for fully automatic checking the wheels, wheel rims and wheels discs against mechanical damages like cracks or volume defects direct on the whole train in the primary maintenance workshop.
Automated ultrasonic wheelset testing station - phased array
The wheel testing machine with ultrasonic immersion technology is used to do automatic ultrasonic flaw detection test on railway wheelsets on the wheel tire. It is mainly used in wheelset production and often also in big heavy hauls workshops.
Stationary ultrasonic solid axle testing plant
The ultrasonic wheelset axle testing machine can execute automatic ultrasonic flaw detection test of solid axles installed on railway wheelsets. It is used in wheelset workshops. It can be integrated into a production line.
Mobile ultrasonic solid axle testing device
The mobile solid axle ultrasonic flaw testing device was developed especially for railroad operators or ultrasonic service providers. It can be used either directly on the vehicles or on removed wheelsets.
