IEM’s railroad Laser Wheel Profilometer, laser scanning with wireless PDA, can assist you with maintaining overall quality control for wheel profiling and conformance with wheel specifications, or provide “hard” data for evaluation of railroad wheel maintenance strategies.

Key Features and Benefits:

  • Power supply can be charged within the gauge
  • Able to take over 600 measurements on a single charge
  • Data is transmitted via Bluetooth
  • Maintains overall wheel quality control and conformance with wheel specifications
  • Provides “hard” data for evaluation of railroad wheel maintenance strategies

The LaserProf scans up to 5.65 inches (145mm) across the flange and tread of a wheel to record the complete wheel profile and provide measurements of flange height, thickness, and slope. Data can be downloaded to a spreadsheet for time series analysis of precise wheel wear patterns and other statistical analysis functions. LaserProf is a heavy-duty instrument designed for use in a shop environment.
