If you work within the rail freight sector, you know as well as anyone that the safety and integrity of a freight wagon axles is critical. Wagon axle failures can lead to unimaginable consequences, not to mention significant financial loss.

AXIS is the solution to these issues and includes a number of other time-saving and operational advantages. The system uses alternating current field measurement (ACFM®) technology to inspect the center section of plain freight axles for fatigue cracks in the surface. The ease of deployment enables AXIS to be used in rail depots as a front-line tool in screening for defects in axles before they threaten the integrity of vehicles.
