Automated Wheelset Measurement System Enables Predictive Maintenance

Case Study: Wiener Linien, Vienna, Austria

To enhance their rail vehicle maintenance operations, Wiener Linien selected Hexagon’s CALIPRI X automated wheelset measurement system because of its quick, exact and reliable wheel profile measurement capabilities.

Clarity on wheel wear conditions allows more efficient condition-based and predictive maintenance, less downtime, better resource planning and significantly reduced maintenance costs.

But safety is the paramount priority in rail. To ensure the safe operation of rail vehicles, all wheels must be measured at frequent, regular intervals to ensure all operating tolerances are adhered to. Looking to improve the efficiency and reliability of this process, Wiener Linien assessed various options available on the market that would allow them to increase the productivity of their maintenance operations. After a rigorous selection process, they chose Hexagon’s CALIPRI X automated on-track solution for precise train wheel profile measurement.

Unrivalled Technical Concept

Wiener Linien currently has three CALIPRI X wheel measurement systems in use for their rail vehicles. The first system was installed at the Erdberg site in June 2022 and by 2025 they will have a total of nine systems in use. Even before the first CALIPRI X overrun system was installed, Erwin Quintus, Technical Referent in the Rail Vehicle Technology department at Wiener Linien, was impressed by the capability of the technology to provide quick, exact and highly reliable wheel profile measurement.

“Hexagon’s product prevailed over other well-known suppliers in an international tender. In addition to economic points, the CALIPRI X product was able to set itself apart from the competition primarily through its technical concepts,” says Quintus, who has been working with wheel measuring systems for over seven years.
