The Trimble® TreadView® system is a sophisticated automatic non-contact optical wheel surface inspection product that inspects wheel tread surface, flange, and plate areas at mainline operational speeds, even in tough environments, day or night.
This system offers visual inspection of complete wheel tread and flange surface using optical imaging and 3D laser scanning. The objective of the system is to determine any surface abnormalities of the wheel that can be detected using high resolution images of the wheel and high density 3D data of the wheel surface.Datasheet
Automate and complete optical wheel surface inspections quicker, minimizing time taken, costs, and issues that disrupt service.
With accurate measurements at line speed there is minimal disruption to rolling stock schedules.
TreadView works in even the toughest environments and at night so field workers are not in unpleasant or unsafe working conditions thereby reducing the risk to their safety.
Providing digital records that are usable across operations and maintenance TreadView reduces manual and paper-based workflows saving time and money. Critical issues are flagged and reported automatically so that corrective actions can be taken with less impact on service.
