The WINDHOFF bogie measuring stand is used to measure and assess wheel forces and to determine the geometric status of a bogie.

The movable test cylinders are fitted with vertical force/way measuring devices. This arrangement allows for the precise measuring of loads and wheel load distribution for a bogie.

Other measuring jobs are: Measuring of wheelbase, wheel back-to-back measure and assessment of bogie mounting criteria for various types of bogies. One of the options includes the automatic set-up for every specific type of bogie.

The modular design permits the implementation of various accessories and specil functions. They may also be implemented at a later date.

WINDHOFF bogie measuring stands excel through a comprehensive visualisation system plus protocol print-out. The data are compiled such that they can be used for further processing in a company’s QM system.
