<!–[endif]–> KOREC will be presenting a series of Technical Seminars at this year’s Infrarail show dealing with modern methods of surveying and track construction. Matthew Lock, one of KOREC’s survey experts, will be discussing the GEDO CE Track Measuring Device (TMD) which was recently awarded Network Rail approval. The TMD incorporates sensors for very precise measurement of the distance between gauge and cant (the two rail lines and super-elevation between them). A single prism can be mounted on either side of the TMD and then tracked by one of the Trimble S-Series Robotic Total Stations or a Trimble SPS930 Universal… Read More
