Calibration of Rail Equipment

A Familiar Face Since 1985

CoMech Metrology has been a familiar face in the rail industry for over 35 years. We are proud to provide calibration and measurement to some of the major brands that span over the UK rail network.

We help the British rail network keep moving by providing rail gauge design, asset management and of course, our well-known calibration service. Although our roots are in the rail industry, other engineering industries are benefitting from our services.

Our laboratories are UKAS accredited and are well-equipped for torque, pressure, mechanical, electrical and MiniProf calibrations, repairs and maintenance.

Taking Care of the UK’s Rail Equipment

Our reputation for precise measurement of metrology equipment means that we count the majority of the UK rail operators as our valued clients. We provide calibrations on torque wrenches, multimeters, gauges, crimp tools and more. All our calibrations are performed in our UK-accredited laboratories, so you can rest assured you’re getting precision when you need it the most.

Rail Gauge Design

If you’re looking for bespoke rail gauges, you’ve come to the right place. You’re in safe hands with CoMech, as we manage the design CAD draughting and technical documentation. We also offer detailed stress analysis for the wide range of gauges we offer.

Taking the Headache out of Asset Management

Keeping track of your assets can be difficult. That’s why our talented, in-house team created TrackRecordPro; one of the most advanced asset management systems available to take the stress out of managing your assets.

TrackRecordPro isn’t just easy to use, but also laden with features and really packs a punch. The software effortlessly keeps track of your assets, but also offers barcode scanning, instant messaging, audit logs and generates reports at the touch of a button.

TrackRecordPro is already used nationwide, and businesses are reaping the rewards.

Metrology Equipment Repairs

When the worst happens and your equipment fails, the last thing you need to be worrying about is that your equipment is now obsolete, and a replacement cannot be sourced. We can help, as we have a fantastic team of in-house specialists who work on damaged and/or obsolete products, which saves you stress and time. If you have custom-made equipment, we can assess whether it can be repaired or replaced.

MiniProf UK

We are pleased to be the sole MiniProf UK and Ireland agent for the supply, calibration and maintenance of Greenwood Engineering’s profile measuring instruments. The range of units is beneficial for monitoring track, wheel, and brake wear on the railway network. They are becoming increasingly world-renowned with thousands of users in over 50 countries.

PowerVe UK

We are delighted to be bringing PowerVe to the UK market for the first time. The ultimate tool for predictive maintenance, PowerVe statically measures the vertical forces of each wheel load on the wheel/rail interface. Lightweight, portable and simple to use, as well as the high reproducibility of the measurements, makes PowerVe the indispensable tool for the rail industry.

Equipment Inspection

Whether you are based within the rail, automotive or aerospace industries, our equipment is suitable for large volumes of production components. Not only that, but our specialist equipment is also capable of providing detailed and scaled drawings of aspects for various components, no matter their complexity.

Our inspection service is perfect for customers who need assistance with a specific piece of equipment. We take care of the maintenance and give you optimum lifespan and results.
