WID manufacture and supply the TBOGI-TR and TBOGI-HD wayside condition monitoring systems.
WID has over 25 years’ experience helping railways enjoy significant savings in wheel life, bogie condition, rail infrastructure life, and maintenance efficiency.
Installed next to the tracks, TBOGI is a laser-based system that measures an advanced array of geometry metrics for each wheelset and bogie, and their stability (hunting). With this data, TBOGI enables railways to:
- Assess the in-service condition of wheels and bogies;
- Accurately identify defects, and trend their degradation; and
- Identify the components that need maintenance and gain unique insight into the causal issues that other monitoring approaches cannot see. This stops repeat wear cycles and saves significant resources.
TBOGI is a cornerstone of efficient wheel-rail interfaces and an essential component of cost-effective railways. TBOGI has earned an excellent reputation for being trouble free, accurate, and well adapted to railroad environments around the world. TBOGI is widely recognized as the technology of choice for bogie condition monitoring.
