Significantly extend wheel life
Stop premature rail wear, especially through curves
Improve fuel/energy efficiency
Cut the cycle of repeat defects and optimize the wheel-rail interface with TBOGI.
TBOGI is a wayside system installed next to the tracks. It measures the geometry and stability of each wheelset and bogie. This is a cornerstone of an effective wheel-rail interface.
TBOGI tracks the degradation of defects, so maintenance can target root cause(s), rather than the same repeat defects.
TBOGI reveals when (and how) the wheel-rail interface is compromised. This is a dictating factor for accelerated wear.
Railways are using TBOGI to minimize risk and significantly improve asset lifespans.
The next generation of TBOGI system – called TBOGI-TR – contains more advanced hardware and is designed specifically for transit/metro environments. Please see the video on this page for an illustration.
