About the FDVKP Automated Wheel Sets Control System
The system is designed for making automatic measurement of 27 geometric parameters of wheel pairs of wagons in the course of incoming and outgoing inspections carried out in railcar/wheel shops, wagon depots and wheelpair repair and gathering workshops.
- Wheel parameters: out-of-roundness, deviation of roll surface countour from desired profile, wheel flange parameters, wheel tread width and thickness, defects on rolling surface, and wheel separation distance.
- Axle journal parameters: average diameters underneath the first and second bearings, out-of-roundness and taper.
- Axle parameters: diameters and ovality of pre-wheel-seat parts, diameters of wheal seats and middle parts of axle.
