Mandatory wheel inspection and maintenance operations, including change-outs and wheel profiling, are time consuming and expensive. Routine measurements, using mechanical gauges is prone to human error, climate and weather conditions, subjective readings, and transcription errors.

Key Features and Benefit:

  • Inspect 100% of cars: WISE inspects every single car that passes it.
  • Quick corrective action: Cars are “bad ordered” immediately and sent to a repair shop.
  • Cars back in service quickly.
  • Automatic integration with work orders.
  • Fewer errors in wheel inspection translate into reduced costs.
  • Easier maintenance and repair of wayside equipment by co-locating it at the yard.

International Electronic Machines Corporation’s automated WISE™ Wheel Inspection System Environment uses a modular approach to integrate subsystems to measure wheels and perform other critical inspections. WISE inspects 100% of the cars that pass over it and maintains historical records for all wheels and can be used for long term trend analysis.
