Inspecting moving technical systems

Insight into condition, quality and functionality

What is the condition of your equipment? How did damage occur to your assets? How long will a component continue to work safely? And how much wear occurs in your lubricated systems? DEKRA inspects components, systems, infrastructures and processes. The experts of DEKRA also look at the specific conditions in which the asset is used. This produces complete and accurate data, information and insight.

Inspections for asset lifecycle management

The results of our inspections provide you with valuable insight into your asset lifecycle management. During the lifecycle of your assets our experts can monitor and determine the condition, quality and functionality of your assets. This also helps to predict the end of their technical life. Should your assets fail before the end of the planned life, inspections will provide you with insight into the cause.

Our inspections

In our own extensive laboratory in Utrecht we carry out various types of inspections, grounded in years of expertise in areas such as materials science, tribology and mechanics.

We work with a modern arsenal of measuring equipment. Recently we expanded with:

  • the latest version of the Greenwood MiniProf system with accompanying software

    We use this for measuring rail profiles and wheel profiles.

  • Goldschmidt's electronic measuring rod

    We use this to digitally measure the vertical and horizontal geometry of rail thermite welds made. In addition, we can also validate and calibrate this measuring trip according to ProRail regulations RLN00451-6. For this, we use our special calibers and a climate chamber.

  • measuring trolley with associated software

    We use this for the automated measurement of the track width, cant and warp of the track. For example, we can measure an arc at walking speed, recording the track geometry per 25 cm. In addition, we can easily and quickly generate tables and graphs for independent measurement and assessment reports.
