Mastering the Power of Light

Introducing The Slippery Track Problem

What we do

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:

TriboMeter

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.

LaserTrain

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.

FIRST LIVE LASERTRAIN

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.

About

LPS is an innovative technology startup specialized in the various facets of laser technology, serving diverse segments. Our first products are aimed at solving the autumn leaf problem that is faced by railway companies all over the world.
