On May 24th, Holland's Director of Product Development, Sabri Cakdi, presented Locomotive Truck Mounted Track Measurement System at the International Crosstie and Fastening Systems Symposium at RailTEC at Illinois on the campus of University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Holland's Locomotive Truck Mounted UGMS takes advantage of the locomotive’s power, tachometer, and GPS information to provide continuous testing back and forth along critical network corridor(s) and eliminating the need for track time.
Holland's UGMS, also known as Autonomous Track Geometry Measurement System or ATGMS, redefines the economics of track testing by capitalizing on the superior measurement technologies of the Argus system and mounting it to the underside of a locomotive.
Key Features of Holland’s Locomotive UGMS include:
- Unique mounting design requires no welding or drilling
- Most economical per mile loaded track measurement due to high utilization of locomotives (>100,000 miles/year)
- Conventional bundle reports (executive summary, curve reports, defect summary, strip/brush charts), defect list, movement report, and movement map files are provided to the customers daily.
