GENESIS - Mobile and Portable Bogie Test Press, Balancing and Weighing System

Mobile/Portable Bogie Weighing/Balancing System

The advantages of the new and unique Mobile and Portable Bogie Test Press, Balancing and Weighing System are huge, as it can be easily moved to any required location, quickly set up and requires minimum operator training in turn eliminating the need to have fixed systems at every workshop. The mobile/portable bogie test press (Bogie Maintenance System) in its current design is for light rail vehicles. The new design distinguishes from commonly used pressing measurement test rigs by usage of the new pulling principle, which allows an especially compact setup. The Mobile Bogie Weigher simulates operational loads which means defined forces acting on the bogie, and captures data as wheel reaction forces, parallelism of axles and wheel discs as well as several other geometric measures at the same time.

Modular test rig design using standardised components, for instance:

  • Test rigs with integrated track width adjustment.
  • Internal and external measuring points of the test rig.
  • Determination of acting forces, transmitted into the bogie.
  • Equipment with measuring bars for determination of wheel reaction forces in case of different distances between axles.
  • Equipment with measuring prism for determination of wheel reaction forces as well as automatic detection of wheel diameter and parallelism of axles.
  • Measuring devices for parallelism of wheel discs.
  • Measuring devices for an aribitrary number of z-measuring points within the bogie.

Benefits & Applications

  • The MBW stands for mobility and flexibility, as the system is ready to use from the time of delivery (no heavy transport) - setup and commissioning within 2 hours.
  • The MBW needs an area of only 2 x 3 meters.
  • Substantially lower amount of investment (about 50%), compared to fixed bogie testing systems.
