RS Clare is attending the Rail Innovation Conference 2024

RS Clare & Co.

As part of our busy annual events and conference calendar, we’re pleased to write about our attendance at this year’s annual Rail Innovation Conference on 26th and 27th March, hosted by The Rail Industry Association (RIA). The conference focuses on innovation within the rail industry and we’re looking forward to bringing our knowledge and insights to discuss with fellow like-minded professionals. Our technical team will be on hand to talk about all the latest developments around some key topics:


Rail Noise & Vibration (N&V) Monitoring

Rail Noise & Vibration (N&V) Monitoring refers to the process of measuring and monitoring noise and vibration generated by rail transportation systems. It involves the use of specialised equipment and techniques to assess and manage the impacts of rail operations on the surrounding environment and communities.

Insights include:

  • The detection of early-onset wheel and track irregularities
  • Understanding and allowing for predictive maintenance decisions
  • Automated continuous monitoring via remote services
  • N&V, an integral part of preventative Friction Management


Wheel & Rail Interface Solutions (WRI)

Wheel & Rail Interface Solutions (WRI) refers to solutions and approaches aimed at addressing the challenges and optimising the interaction between wheels and rails. The wheel-rail interface is the area of contact between the wheels and rails of railways, and it is a crucial aspect of rail operations that requires careful management and design.

Insights include:

  • Noise reduction and eradication
  • Wheel and Rial protection systems
  • Protecting people and the planet


High-Performance Railway Friction Management Solutions

High-performance railway Friction Management Solutions involve advanced technologies and strategies aimed at continuously improving your WRI Solutions. These solutions focus on enhancing safety, and operational efficiency, and minimising wear and tear on both the wheels and rails. One example of a high-performance friction management solution is the Rail Lubricant system offered by RS Clare.

Insights include:

  • Maximising wheel and rail life, minimising trackside maintenance
  • Friction management equipment and consumables
  • How to protect rail assets worldwide
  • Increasing safety and improving reliability


What is the Rail Industry Association?
