Infrarail seminars: Optimising the Rail Lifecycle

On Wednesday 2 May at 11:10, Matthew Lock, Rail Consultant at Korec will be presenting ‘Optimising the Rail Lifecycle – How positioning solutions can help’ at Infrarail.

Over the years, technology has become more user-friendly, flexible and productive. There have been tremendous advances in mobile communications, data capture and computing.

In the world of surveying & mapping, construction & 3D machine control and scanning & imaging these advances have been just as significant.

It is important that as this technology becomes more commonplace and tries to be all things to all people, there is still focus on the requirements and demands of key market sectors such as rail.

With that in mind, Trimble’s Railway Industry Business Area was formed to bring instrumentation, software, sensors and services from its various divisions together and bring tangible benefits to the global railway family.

Korec has been supplying Trimble high-end surveying and 3D machine control systems to the railway industry for many years and is now in a position to be able to serve it better than ever before.

In this presentation, Mathew Lock will discuss how key demands within the railway lifecycle can be met and how a joined up approach to construction has led to significant time savings and cost benefits.

He will also give some examples of how Trimble rail solutions can significantly benefit tamping projects.
