Lucchini RS is at the forefront in the maintenance services and by relentlessly implementing cost efficient design improvements, real-time monitoring, best-in-class testing procedures, a wheelset condition based maintenance is possible, opening up opportunities of high vehicle efficiency at equivalent if not better availability.
Performance of wheelsets is monitored to optimize Life Cycle Cost.
In 2016, Lucchini RS published another technical book called LRS Techno-9: “A Modern Approach to Wheelset Maintenance Plan Optimization”, focusing on a scientific approach to wheelsets maintenance.
Lucchini RS developed also an innovative patented solution for condition monitoring of axles bending and torsional load spectra, a special wheelset called Smartset®.
The data can be collected on board and up-loaded to a remote server where it will be available for optimizing NDT inspection interval in relation to the actual vehicle service, enabling the reduction of maintenance costs. Along the service line, Smartset® can detect overloads together with the GPS position, providing useful information to the infrastructure maintenance manager.
