BIP Industrietechnik GmbH has been focusing on the development and testing of non-destructive test methods for many years.
ULTRASONIC TESTING DEVICES FOR WHEEL SETS
BIP has acquired special competence in the manufacture of its own automatic ultrasonic testing systems for wheelsets. Thanks to automated processes, high accuracy and individual planning, these systems are not only particularly thorough, but also economic.
Whether hollow shafts, solid shafts or wheel discs – the systems of BIP Industrietechnik GmbH are successfully used all over the world. They enable semi-automatic or fully automatic testing of wheel sets for cracks in the structure or other load damages. Due to the output of A, B/C, or TD images, the test results are clearly readable.

OPTICAL MEASUREMENT OF WHEELSETS
In order not to turn small errors into major effects, they must be tested regularly. Only this way, the component condition can be determined, possible damages can be detected and countermeasures can be taken in due time.
Today, thanks to the most modern laser technology, even optical measurements are carried out accurately and without errors. The exact matching of a measuring unit and a wheel set is of decisive importance.

DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY EQUIPMENT FOR WHEELSETS
If the material is fatigued or worn, one must react quickly. Whether removal of wheel bandages or disassembly of wheel set bearing housings or profile turning – with its automatic or semi-automatic devices, BIP Industrietechnik is able to process, change and recondition wheel sets quickly and reliably.
The advantages of the automation or partial automation in this area are:
- Short cycle times
- Minimization of the defective production
- Improvement of the working conditions

TRANSPORT EQUIPMENT FOR WHEELSETS
Those who want to ensure the highest quality for their wheelsets must also apply special standards for maintenance and handling. BIP Industrietechnik stands for special auxiliary equipment and automated monitoring transport systems which take into account the dead load and handling of wheel sets.
WHEELSET CLEANING PLANTS
Whether testing work or lacquering measures – the basis for every form of the further processing of wheel sets is their extensive cleaning from dirt, rust and old paint. The cleaning plants of BIP Industrietechnik work fully automatically, bring the wheelsets subsequently to the postprocessing and are equipped with a high-quality dedusting plant for protection against explosive dangers. Thanks to special brushing and grinding tools as well as rotation processes, it is possible to clean the wheelsets both on the inside and on the outside.
