Digital Maintenance for Railway Technology: Intelligent view of maintenance and status
Efficient maintenance concepts for safe rail operations
Vehicle availability is the most important thing in rail technology. Maintenance is becoming increasingly important - the reactive "find and fix" approach is to be replaced by a proactive, condition-based maintenance strategy. The widespread deadline-based condition monitoring, which involves taking snapshots of the condition of rail vehicles, is repeatedly criticized for incomplete data collection. Between assessment dates, performance of components may change, which in the worst case may lead to operational failure of the rail vehicle. Automated condition monitoring helps to close this data gap and to take preventive repair measures in good time.
Digitized maintenance of railroad operations
At Schunk Transit Systems, we rely on digital predictive maintenance for complex systems, which can prevent unfavorable failures thanks to continuous inspection and early detection of faults and wear. We are able to equip Schunk power transmission systems with modern digital features and sensors that report their status continuously and automatically. Thus, you always receive the current maintenance documentation with the technical condition data and forecasts regarding the potential for faults.
