Manufacturers of rail track machinery and passenger trains in Europe are becoming more sensible regarding the registration of rolling stock vehicles according to DIN EN14363 standards. This standard supervises the registration of rolling stock vehicles by testing the running condition as well as through stationary tests.
The wheel weighing machine from Nencki represents the ideal facility for innovative "condition-based maintenance." Within half an hour the quality and function of the spring system of a bogie can be simulated on a twisted track in the workshop.
Depending on the result, the vehicle has to be maintained or can remain in operation. Remarkable cost savings can be achieved, because of expensive components not being exchanged after a specified mileage, but only after their wear.
Several European depots and rolling stock manufacturers have already considered the procurement of a Nencki wheel weighing (NWW) machine.
