MiniProf BT

Description

MiniProf BT is based on secure full-contact measurements and has a knife-shaped full contact point directly to the surface of a given profile. The magnetic full contact point minimizes influences from oil, lubrication, dirt and other substances on the profile as it “cuts” through the layers. It ensures constant contact to the actual profile during the complete measuring process and minimizes operator influence.

The accuracy of a MiniProf BT system is very consistent due to the unique measuring principle with a small magnetic measuring wheel and two rotating optical high resolution encoders which ensure that the measurement is performed perpendicular to the surface of the entire profile.

Metro Sao Paulo

Project Description

The project is part of the construction of the new line 6 (Orange) of the São Paulo Metro network, which will cover a distance of up to 15 km and link the existing São Joaquim Station to the Brasilândia district. The line will start its operation in 2025 with an expected traffic of 630.000 daily rides a day.

ACYGS, an engineering and consulting firm specialized in equipment of railway maintenance depots, is providing its technical engineering services to ACCIONA Construcción, the main partner of the concessionaire company responsible for the construction and subsequent operation and maintenance of the line.

Phase I (design) of the engineering process at the Pátio Morro Grande workshop was completed by ACYGS during 2021, who carried out a requirement analysis and produced a preliminary design of the layout, considering the needs of the concessionaire. Work is currently underway in Phase II, providing consultancy services for procurement, by drafting technical specifications of workshop equipment and analyzing the offers.

Project Description

ACYGS has been awarded the contract of the technical assistance tender to give support to the rolling stock maintenance service for Ferrocarril Metropolitano de Barcelona by drafting and improving the maintenance working instructions.

Preventive maintenance activities for the Rolling Stock Service are currently carried out through the procedures stated in the working instructions. These instructions are drawn up from the technical documentation of the train manufacturer and its Maintenance Plan and are improved from the experience and performance of the equipment throughout its life. These instructions are intended to be easy to understand and with a strong visual appeal.

The activities to be carried out during the technical assistance include the improvement of existing working instructions, the drafting of new preventive maintenance instructions, and the drafting of corrective maintenance instructions. These tasks will be accomplished both in the office and in the workshops, witnessing the performance of the maintenance to document these operations.

Portable Weigher for Railway Vehicles

DESCRIPTION

ACYGS, the official distributor of IVM, introduces the new portable weighing system for railway vehicles, also known as POWERVE®.

This equipment statically performs the measurement of the vertical force distribution on wheels and wheelsets.

Its excellent measurement performance, portability and ease of use make it an ideal tool to verify that all parameters related to rolling stock balance comply with the optimal operating limits.

This system has been continuously improving over the years, achieving high performance compared to high-precision static fixed weighing systems.

POWERVE® transforms any rail into a measuring station with very high accuracy and exactness characteristics and enables quick and easy weighing.

POWERVE® is an ITALCERTIFER certified weighing equipment (ref. of the evaluation report: ITCFC-19222-11-ATF-RA-00011), according to the following standards:

UNE- EN 15654-2:2020, “Railway applications. Measurement of the vertical force distribution on wheels and wheelsets. Part 2: Test in workshop for new, modified and maintained vehicles”.

UNE EN 50215:2011(only for the weighing of rolling stock and the vertical force exerted by each wheel on the track)

Rerailing Equipment

Description

This system is fast and easy to use, hence reducing delays, optimizing costs, and providing a safe working environment while performing the necessary operations.

It includes independent control valves that allow both simultaneous and independent control. It also has remote control, so valves can be operated from a safe position without the need to be close to the track.

The system is designed for easy assembly. The hoses are colored, matching the colors of the pump control panel, making it easy to assemble quickly.

The lowering valves have an integrated hose rupture security feature which will allow a more controlled and safer lowering of the load.

We offer three different rerailing sets (Basic, Advanced and Premium) to suit the applications and needs of our customers.
