Progress Rail's Ultrasonic Technology (UIT) first treated a highway bridge in 1995. In the ensuing decade, this business has expanded to a dozen states, thanks to outstanding results in various research initiatives from leading authorities such as the U.S. Federal Highway Administration, Lehigh University, the University of Texas, Stuttgart University and others. Progress Rail’s UIT has been shown to extend the life of bridges and other structures by a number of decades. UIT offers a portable solution that’s fast, easy to use and has been added to the codes that govern bridge maintenance.
Progress Rail’s UIT is a maintenance manager’s ideal solution. From decreasing downtime by tripling the life of a drive shaft to reducing costs by alleviating repetitive weld repairs, UIT brings measurable value to the manufacturing environment. UIT technical support teams are available on an as-needed basis to provide insight into how UIT can provide the greatest value and treat high stress areas onsite.
Running at 100% production capacity for months at a time takes a massive toll on equipment and components in this demanding industry that has little tolerance for downtime. Progress Rail’s UIT helps the industry combat downtime by offering a portable solution that improves problem areas, extends weld life and increases corrosion resistance in an easy to use, cost effective package.
From crankshafts and brake rotors to structural weldments, Progress Rail’s UIT offers solutions that have never been available before to the Transportation industry. As new, lighter and stronger materials are being developed for use in Transportation, UIT enables improvements in design to reduce weight and fuel consumption.
