Expanded KOREC Rail team assists technological advancement with a Vegas incentive

KOREC is delighted to announce that following an expansion of the KOREC Rail team, it is better equipped than ever to showcase advances in rail survey and measurement technology.

PWI Membership

As a new corporate member of the Permanent Way Institution, KOREC will be working closely with the organisation to provide training and upskilling with particular reference to innovative solutions to the rail industry for the construction, measurement and laying of new track and the maintenance of existing lines.

Supporting the PWI Trackwork Challenge

KOREC was also delighted to support the PWI in its recent Practical Trackwork Challenge 2022. This saw the KOREC Rail team spend two days on site at the Churnet Valley Railway, a Heritage Railway which was part of the former North Staffordshire Railways. The renewals site was located on a challenging single line approximately one mile from Froghall Station. The aim of the challenge  was to provide hands-on experience of track renewals for the participants as part of their personal development.

Visit us at Rail Live 2022

KOREC Rail will also be on hand at this year’s Rail Live event (Stand G9) on 22 – 23 June at Long Marston Rail Innovation Centre, Warwickshire. Again, the aim will be on showcasing innovative Trimble technology. As well as a full range of Trimble GEDO and monitoring systems, visitors can expect to see:

  • Trimble GEDO GX50 – a flexible kinematic laser scanning system designed to operate with Trimble GEDO track measurement systems for clearance analysis and asset data collection. This is the first rail specific trolley solution of its kindand already in use on tracks up and down the country.
  • Trimble SiteVision – an easy to use Augmented Reality system that combines a low cost GNSS receiver with a Smartphone enabling users to interact with their spatial data in the context of the real world.
  • New Possession Management system – again using low cost GNSS and KOREC data capture software for reliable marker board recording etc

Vegas, baby!

A demonstration is by far the best way to assess new technology, so as a little extra incentive, we’re offering one lucky person the chance to join us in Las Vegas for Trimble Dimensions this November – including flights, accommodation, and entrance to the conference. To enter, all you need to do is contact a member of the KOREC Rail team and book a demo with us before mid July.
