Automatic inspection station for the critical train assets

CAF’S LEADMIND WAYSIDE ALLOWS WEAR MONITORING, ANTICIPATING FAILURES AND PERFORMING INTERVENTIONS ONLY WHEN NECESSARY.

 CAF takes a step further in service growth and expands its digital portfolio within LeadMind to offer a wider solution with the implementation of a modular data acquisition system station.

The wayside systems make it possible to automate visual inspection and measurement activities and in this way, the status of the assets is known instantly and more frequently than manually.

The benefits of the use of automatic systems range from facilitating condition-based maintenance to improving diagnosis and avoiding repetitive failures. These benefits are captured through the integration of the automatic systems and the advanced analytics of CAF´s digital platform.

LeadMind Wayside allows wear monitoring, anticipating failures and performing interventions only when necessary. This solution reduces the number of hours required for repetitive works and allows better adjustment of the frequency of changes of certain materials.

CAF offers the opportunity to design a modular and personalized Inspection Station. The sum and type of equipment are chosen by the operator or maintainer based on the needs of the fleet. Wheels, discs, linings, bogie, pantograph, roof, under floor and / or body side can be monitored according to customer requirements. This information can be integrated directly with other features of LeadMind Advanced Analytics or access to it independently.

CAF has 50 wayside systems installed in 15 countries with access to LeadMind Wayside.
