MiniProf BT Rail - Profiling Rail Wear

Aid for rail grinding operations, providing instant information on metal removal and grinding stone tilt, Rail Maintenance, Quality control of new rails

The MiniProf BT Rail provides you with an easy and portable tool to monitor your rail profiles. The fast operation of the MiniProf BT reduces your exposure on the track.

The MiniProf BT Rail is a unique aid for rail grinding operations, providing instant information on metal removal and grinding stone tilt.

The instant and precise calculation of wear parameters enables you to optimise your maintenance. The MiniProf BT Rail is just as useful in the quality control of new rails.

MiniProf BT Rail

MiniProf BT Rail is a high precision, lightweight and portable tool for performing cross-sectional rail profile measurements in order to monitor and analyze the wear of rails. It is equipped with Bluetooth as well as cable connection option and can be used on many types of tracks, including grooved rails.

Used with a telescopic rod attached to the opposite rail, it measures the rail profile and track gauge in one single measurement in less than 5 seconds.

Various calculations and alignments for rails are available in the versatile and flexible Envision software package and can easily be added for optimum and customized configuration of the MiniProf BT Rail system.


The MiniProf Switch addon extends a standard MiniProf Rail instrument to measure multiple profiles. It is attached magnetically and can optionally use a telescopic rod for reference to the opposite rail. With the instrument, each rail in a switch or crossing is measured individually and then combined automatically using positional data from the Switch addon. The result is a measurement containing all profiles placed relative to each other allowing measures to be taken between them.

TwinHead Rail

The normal single head MiniProf Rail instrument is extended to a TwinHead Rail with a fixed beam between two heads. The system is magnetically attached to rails in the track. The TwinHead is efficient to obtain maximum accuracy when joint profiles are measured without moving the instrument. The system is ideal for interaction studies between wheels and rails. Applications for a TwinHead are: Contact studies, Optimisation of wheel-rail contact, Steering/curve negotiation. Plug-in for calculating Equivalent Conicity is available.
