The Gekon 3D is a measuring equipment designed for contactless corrugation measuring of both vignol and grooved rails.
GEKON 3D can be used for evaluation of railhead surface microgeometry evaluation.
GEKON 3D is equipped by two 3D cameras using triangular principle are applied for non-contact continuous scanning of the rail profile.
GEKON 3D is composed of manually driven trolley and measuring computer, which serves as a data-logger and it can also evaluate the measured data. Trolley is light and compact. It can be removed from the track and returned back within seconds.
Measurement can be done on an operated track.
3D cameras using triangular principle are applied for non-contact continuous scanning of the rail profile in regular step 0.25m. The rail head wear is calculated and displayed in real time as well as the shape of the rail head.
The parameter of equivalent conicity is available in data post-processing. Both rails or only one rail can be measured simultaneously depending on chosen configuration.
