We work to ensure safe and conve­ni­ent travel and boost rail trans­port in Europe.

We use state-of-the-art test methods and apply our exten­sive experi­ence to make rail trans­port safe, reliable and profi­ta­ble. Thanks to our services, our clients save time and money in maintai­ning the long-term relia­bi­lity and perfor­mance of their rail networks.

Visual inspec­tion

Our employees are trained and, above all, highly experi­en­ced in visual inspec­tions. Expert visual inspec­tions ensure that mecha­ni­cal damage (caused by rolling contact, for example), manufac­tu­ring defects and assem­bly-related workmanship defects are clearly identi­fied and thoroughly asses­sed. Even when other testing methods are also deployed – a visual inspec­tion always comes first.

Ultra­so­nic testing

We use ultra­so­nic testing to detect track defects in real time, from inter­nal irregu­la­ri­ties to corro­sion of the rail foot. We work with state-of-the-art hand-guided track testing devices to detect and assess irregu­la­ri­ties in tracks and switches caused by defects in workmanship, manufac­tu­ring or opera­tion. We are also able to conduct surro­gate measu­re­ments for rail testing vehicles. Once a rail testing vehicle has detec­ted irregu­la­ri­ties, these must be inves­ti­ga­ted further. We do this by means of ultra­so­nic damage assess­men
