International Electronic Machines Showcases Wheel Inspection System Environment (WISE) at Gathering of Public Transportation Industry

Held every three years in conjunction with the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) Annual Meeting, EXPO is public transportation’s premier showcase of technology, products and services.

Troy, NY, July 18, 2011 --( International Electronic Machines (IEM) is showcasing WISE at the APTA’s Expo 2011 coming up Oct 3-5 in New Orleans. EXPO is public transportation’s premier showcase of technology, products and services. Wheels continue to be a critical path item in the maintenance of high-speed trainsets, locomotives, freight cars and passenger coaches. Mandatory wheel inspection and maintenance operations, including change-outs and wheel profiling, are time consuming and expensive.

Wheel management requires routine measurements of the wheel that typically have been taken by a significant labor force using mechanical gauges. Historically, this method is inherently affected by human error, climate and weather conditions, subjective measurements and transcription errors.

James Skaggs, Director of Sales, said “Our WISE system is an exciting development encompassing patented designs combining laser scanning and high-speed imaging to provide cost effective and innovative solution.”

In addition, IEM recently introduced the new, Mini-Electronic Wheel Gauge. The latest EWG integrates the controller, keypad, sensor and LCD screen into a single unit, weighing less while offering greater maneuverability, versatility and improved operability.
