Case: Strainlabs – Digitalising rail - transforming manual work into a digital service

The aim is to increase rail accessibility and introduce digitalisation. The result between Stainlabs and Vossloh's collaboration is a digital platform that offers solutions to increase railway efficiency in a sustainable way.

Screws are extremely common in railway infrastructure, such as switches, gears, signalling systems, etc. Traffic causes screw loosening which requires high maintenance to avoid downtime. Digitalisation of screws makes this work automatic at a lower cost and higher reliability. Predictive maintenance can be based entirely on data-driven decisions.

The cooperation with Vossloh has created a very easy-to-use and inexpensive digitisation model for the end customer. Digital monitoring of bolted joints reduces the need for manual work, documentation, saves time, reduces maintenance costs and increases the operational reliability and availability of the railway line in question.

Vossloh AG, with a 150-year market presence, is a leading manufacturer and supplier of railway infrastructure and is responsible for a maintenance contract with the Swedish Transport Administration.
