Amberg delivers GRP track surveying systems to China

Posted on September 23, 2010

Swiss manufacturer Amberg Technologies has now delivered 288 GRP track surveying systems to China, where they are being used for precise construction of their massive high-speed rail program.

The Amberg Slab Track surveying system includes the GRP 1000 survey trolley powered by the Amberg Rail-Slab Track software application module.

Although the Amberg GRP system is modular and can address a wide variety of track measurement applications such as clearance, tamping, track geometry surveying and as-built documentation, the GRP 1000 configuration, which is being utilized in China, caters to the special requirements of slab track construction. This allows the tracks to be built with millimeter accuracy and comprehensively documented for quality assurance during the construction phase and final verification.

"The expertise we have developed with the experience in China is a tremendous benefit to our clients here in North America. This is a new technology for North America that offers a more productive work process and ultimately a better overall rail project" said Brian Daniel, regional manager of Amberg Technologies in North America.
