Speno was a pioneer in the detection of head checks. Nowadays, under increasing loads, these cracks are more widespread. We still innovate as we measure a larger range of fissure (spalling).
We have developed a contactless cross-sectional measurement technique, and also a longitudinal technique that is a world first.
Speno is developing an on-board metal removal measurement unit, eliminating the need for the operator to get down onto the track.
Speno is developing preventive milling. In addition to a light removal of metal, the new milling machine is able to offer an optimum finish. Even if preventive maintenance is the main objective, the machine is still able to carry out corrective maintenance.
