NXTGEN Industries, a leading robotics company, in partnership with Future Maintenance Technologies, has developed a revolutionary robot designed to carry out dimensional and visual inspections in the undercarriage of trains. The partnership has enabled NXTGEN to leverage its advanced robotics technology to create a robot that is changing the way inspections are conducted in the rail industry.
At NXTGEN Industries, we believe that automation is the future of inspections, and the robot we developed is an excellent example of that. The robot is equipped with advanced technology that enables it to accurately measure different aspects of the undercarriage of trains. Additionally, automated analytical tools are used to generate reports and detect anomalies and defects, making the inspection process faster and more efficient.
One of the significant advantages of using this system is that it enhances consistency. The robot can perform inspections with a high level of accuracy and consistency, eliminating the risk of human error. This means that maintenance teams can rely on the data generated by the robot to make informed decisions about the maintenance of trains. Another advantage of using the robot is that it frees up people from doing mundane inspection tasks, allowing them to tend to maintenance activities. Inspections can be time-consuming and monotonous, and by automating them, maintenance teams can focus on more critical tasks that require their attention. This not only improves efficiency but also increases job satisfaction among maintenance teams.
The robot's ability to measure wheel profiles with sub-mm accuracy, accurately measure brake shoe and disk thicknesses, and perform various visual inspections for surface-related defects is crucial in the rail industry. The reports generated by automated analytical tools are accurate, detailed, and easy to understand, making it easier for maintenance teams to take the necessary actions to rectify the issues detected. The use of automated analytical tools also ensures that the inspection process is faster and more efficient, reducing downtime and minimizing costs.
