Scalex WILD helped The Finnish Transport Agency to detect the defects and improve the safety
High speeds, heavy loads and challenging weather conditions are hard on the wheels of railway equipment. For example, they may develop flat spots due to locked brakes, which makes the wheel wear out of roundness and causes damage to rolling stock and the rails. Material defects or steel fatigue may also cause pieces of the wheel to come loose.
“A flat spot on a wheel’s running surface hits the rail on each revolution and the wheel bearings are also subjected to an equivalent force. When this continues long enough, the bearings start to break and finally jam. In the end, the axle may break and derail the train,” explains Seppo Mäkitupa, Head of the railway unit at the Finnish Transport Agency.
