Brake pad inspection

Publish Date :July 18, 2016
Summary :

Since 2006, we have provided full-automatic inspection systems for trains and rail com­ponents. For instance we have delivered a 24/7 monitoring system of the brake pads to a number of the trains of the Danish railway company, DSB.
In 2011, the system was replaced by a new system due to the geometry of the brakes of DSB’s new IC4 trains. On top of an average payback time of one year and manpower being released for other tasks, accidents in which the brake pad falls off and the shoe is pressed into the disc rarely occur due to predictive maintenance.
