Railway and Tunnel Surveying
Whether it’s a subway tunnel in London, a hydroelectric plant on the Amazon River, the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland or a high-speed rail route in China: Construction projects of this magnitude are nothing unusual for Amberg Technologies AG. The Swiss company is one of the global leaders specializing in user-friendly railway and tunnel surveying solutions. Geophysicists and surveyors as well as software and hardware engineers at the headquarters in Regensdorf near Zurich design customized system solutions for georeferenced data capture and processing in infrastructure installations. The company offers its customers field-proven products as well as customer-specific services for railway surveying, tunnel surveying and tunnel seismics.
Amberg Technologies belongs to the Amberg Group along with Amberg Engineering AG, Amberg Loglay AG and VSH VersuchsStollen Hagerbach AG and has grown steadily since it was founded in 1981. Today, Amberg Technologies is the global market leader in the area of railway and tunnel surveying and offers its products and services through a network of more than 30 sales partners in over 40 countries. Customers include railway companies and construction companies as well as engineering firms, surveying agencies and universities. A well-established network of local service partners in all markets guarantees customers the Swiss quality and reliability to which they are accustomed.
Railway Surveying Equipment
Amberg Rail system solutions meet the most demanding needs in modern railway surveying and consist of the modular hardware, the GRP System FX and the customized, application-specific software platform, Amberg Rail 3.0. When faced with diverse, high-level surveying requirements in the areas of construction and maintenance of slab track and ballasted track, as-built survey of existing lines, clearance analysis, Amberg Technologies is the reliable partner of choice for the international railway industry.
Track Geometry Measuring Equipment
The well-tried railway surveying system GRP System FX is extended with the new Amberg IMS 1000 and Amberg IMS 3000 system configurations – the first and only one-trolley long-chord system. The Amberg IMS systems measure the inner and outer track geometry of ballast tracks and slab tracks using a new, high-performance sensor – the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The employed IMU consists of 3 gyroscopes, 3 acceleration sensors and an on-board computer. Amberg IMS enables our customers to reduce time, manpower, costs and complexity in managing work.
Tunnel Surveying Systems
The tunnel surveying systems from Amberg Technologies support tunnelling in all construction phases. The system solutions under the umbrella name of Amberg TMS combine precise measuring instruments with task-specific software and today are an indispensable tunnelling equipment component. Significant improvements in efficiency are realized especially in tunnel setting out, tunnel profile measurements, geotechnical analysis and as-built tunnel analysis.
Railway and Tunnel MobileMapping
Railway and tunnel surveying, GeoMonitoring, MobileMapping, inspection and conservation of evidence – customers from very diverse segments of the infrastructure industry make use of the services provided by Amberg Technologies. In addition to the services themselves, product training and project support for all system customers is also offered with a primary focus on Switzerland, but also internationally.
Tunnel Seismic Prediction
Accurate knowledge of the geological situation enables early recognition of risks and timely initiation of logistical measures. The proven TSP System forecasts the ground conditions at the tunnel face reliably and continuously, making tunnel engineering more calculable in terms of safety, faithfulness to deadlines and cost efficiency.
