Keeping Trains on Track with High-Speed Rail Cleaning Laser Technology

We are LPS, a laser technology scale-up based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We have been creating safe and reliable rail cleaning solutions since 2016.

Wave goodbye to delays.

Our products help rail networks to detect and improve Coefficient of Friction (COF) levels during slip-slide conditions and minimize the impacts of weather events.

The LaserTrain

The LaserTrain is an advanced system that uses laser technology to eliminate friction loss and provide ideal COF at speeds up to 100kph.

It uses laser ablation to ‘vaporize’ contamination from the rail heads without any damage, keeping rails free of slip-slide conditions for 24 hours.

Improved friction levels prevent train wheels from blocking, reducing the number of flat spots, low adhesion delays and maintenance costs.

We are the most sustainable rail cleaning option in the market with the lowest CO2 running emissions, pure energy and no consumables or byproducts. This technique also works to clear rust, oil and waste from the rails.

Product Features

Control System

Combines all hardware and software for an easy autonomous clean, so no manual operator is required.

Laser Safety

To prevent lasering on the same spot, the system will automatically shut off at speeds under 2mph.

Control System

Enables the Laser End of the system to switch automatically between two modes, Transport where the system is raised, and Cleaning where it is at the top of the railhead. This prevents the system from hitting rail obstacles.

Client Dashboard

To keep track of the LaserTrain our partners access detailed analysis including the live position of the train, where it has been, slip slide results, a rain tracker and miles cleaned.

Every autumn, tonnes of leaves fall on railway lines. When they’re crushed, a dangerous oily layer forms that causes trains to lose grip. Drivers can’t effectively and safely accelerate and brake, meaning severe delays, unsafe journeys, and high maintenance costs.
