Train testing involves putting an entire train – or individual components – through various laboratory and on-track testing under realistic driving conditions to ensure that the rolling stock and railway components are safe in accordance with relevant global standards and regulations.
Engineers in the railway sector demand robust and durable measurement hardware systems which, supported by intelligent interaction with software solutions, deliver real-time results and allow the user to easily create reports and analyses.
Railway physical tests also include testing under extreme events, like derailment safety tests, rail crash tests or impact tests. Once tests are completed, rolling stock and component manufacturers can learn from the results of the tests and make any necessary improvements.
UTM has been creating tailored products and solutions that meet these high demands of rail vehicle and train testing; from the development phase of a rail vehicle through prototype testing, performance acceptance tests, investigations for improvements and routine monitoring during operation, to tests performed on the tracks and other infrastructure.
