Train Building Body-in-White

Manufacturers of modern rail vehicles need to guarantee sustainable mobility over the entire lifetime of their railroad cars. Today's coaches combine attractive design with technical innovation, and deliver optimal operational performance coupled with maximum reliability, availability, maintainability, safety, environmental protection and cost-efficiency. GOM's portable metrology systems support production controls and inspection of repairs and maintenance performed on railroad car bodies. They analyze inspection criteria that include body-in-white leveling to ground and wheel set, wall perpendicularity, and dimensions and distortions for door and window openings. Typically, one person can inspect a rail coach with TRITOP and provide a complete inspection report in less than 2.5 hours.
