Wheel / rail system service

We perform sound technical investigation for a perfectly coordinated pairing of whel and rail. This enalbes safe and low-wear railway operation in the long term - and saves costs.


Our engineers are highly trained and experienced track specialists. They are familiar with the complex relationships between wheel-rail interaction and create precise condition analyses – the basis for economic maintenance. In the range of turnout planning, they use their know-how to create the basis for enduring values.

One of our key tasks is the support of the lightrail transportation companies and the railway industry in all issues of rail-based guidance. Our consulting services range from root cause analysis of wear phenomena to lifetime optimization of components and detailed feasibility studies.

  • optimization of the wheel / track interface: cross dimension and contact geometry, definition of nominal dimensions and tolerances, mating materials for wheels and tracks and intermediate materials with lubricating effect
  • detection of basic design errors concerning the tracks and rolling stock
  • selection of parameters and definition of suitable requirements
