Predictive wheelset management

Imagine a smooth connection between measuring instruments and software in order to predict the wear development of wheelsets automatically. The exclusive partnership between NEXTSENSE and BOOM Software enables this seamless pairing of hardware and software.

NEXTSENSE’s contactless CALIPRI measuring devices ensure highly accurate wheelset measurement. From CALIPRI Predictor, the acquired measurement data is transferred to the wheelset management solution of BOOM Software, where each measurement value is assigned to the corresponding wheelset. By linking the current measurement data with the specific wheelsets, historical measurement and maintenance data, and master data, forecasts of wheelset wear can be generated as well as the demand for wheelsets at fleet level.

Benefit from precise measurements, automatic data processing and system-generated predictions. Make the decision on when to reprofile, or change the wheelset, based on system suggestions combined with your experience.

Documentation and traceability

The documentation at asset and component level makes the traceability of the wheelsets possible. Consequently, you always know where which wheelset is located. With stored limit value tables in the Wheelset Management, compliance with the DIN standard EN15313:2016 is facilitated.

Wheelsets
From measurement to
demand planning

Our goal is to make wheelset management more predictive. For this reason, we are placing a strong focus on the development of models that are designed to predict wear and the next maintenance dates at an early stage and with high accuracy. This information can be used to derive the demand for wheelsets at fleet level, thus supporting asset managers in their planning function.

Technical dossier

Everything at a glance

Wheelset management includes the formal description of technical master data of wheelsets. This includes, for example, the manufacturing characteristics, the mapping of maintenance strategies and also recurring inspections and measurements.

Wheelset
Traceability

Know how, what, where, when

The installation documentation at asset and component level enables the traceability of the wheelsets. As a result you know always where each wheelset is located, thus ensuring the safety-relevant aspect.

Wheelset
Condition Monitoring

Know your wheelsets

Interfaces to measuring devices enable real-time condition monitoring of the individual wheelsets, but also of brake discs. Therefore, you always know the current condition of the assets, this enables you to react in a timely manner.

Pedictions

What awaits you

The wear of wheelsets and brake discs is calculated over the mileage. This wear can be of a typical or atypical form. The future demand for wheelsets is calculated by these statistics.

Significant relief in the area of ECM with Boom Rail Solutions
Post from 25. October 2021

Innofreight Solutions GmbH develops customized, innovative wagons, containers, and unloading systems for rail transport companies. Around 2,000 InnoWagons and more than 15,000 containers are in use throughout Europe. Some of these are sold to customers, others are leased. However, compliance with the ECM regulation must be guaranteed in both cases.
