Effective from 29th September 2006, Schenck Process will take over the in-motion-scale business of Pfister Waagen Bilanciai GmbH of Augsburg, Germany. Schenck Process’ MULTIRAIL® technology will now be further strengthened in its leading market position for force-measuring and weighing technology for rail vehicles in motion.
MULTIRAIL® technology is used in the area of track based installations for the 'in-service’ operation as well as force-measuring and weighing technology for maintenance and repair workshops. With its help, trains, or rather its individual wagons, are weighed quickly with legal-for-trade accuracy. In the same way, dynamic wheel loads and wheel load distributions can be detected. Furthermore, the technology is able to analyse damage to the wheels of rolling stock, which is essential to avoiding damage to the track as well.
