Mastering the Power of Light
Laser Precision Solutions (LPS) applies laser technology within the field of railway infrastructure with the goal to get rid of contamination on the track, which peaks during leaf season (autumn). LPS has developed the following two products:
Our TriboMeter maps the available traction in an entire network and provides real-time data. Using this data, braking-, acceleration- and energy schemes are optimized.
The LaserTrain uses high-intensity lasers to remove the slippery top layer from the tracks. By removing this layer the level of friction can be kept in the optimal state year round.
During the autumn of 2018, Laser Tribology B.V. (LPS) and the MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) have tested the LaserTrain prototype to combat slippery tracks on live rail in New York City. The LaserTrain prototype had a target cleaning speed of 15 km/h (9mph), but results show that even at speeds up to 25km/h (15.5 mph) the track was fully cleaned.
