Due to its large size, the maintenance services are divided into strategic areas to serve the 16 existing lines optimally and exclusively. A breakdown in a train can jeopardize the proper functioning and punctuality of a line. That is why the maintenance service needs to have technological test tools to anticipate problems through predictive maintenance.
Based on periodic, systematically conducted braking performance tests, Metro de Madrid can reliably and safely roll out condition-based maintenance.
A series of measurements on three different braking systems (pneumatic brake, electrical brake, and emergency brake) lets Metro de Madrid better plan their maintenance cycles and deploy their predictive maintenance concept.
