In the laboratory, which has a focus on condition monitoring of railway and mechanical equipment (gears, bearings, etc.) is currently a test rig for condition monitoring of cracks in the gear as well as an advanced test rig for condition monitoring of various sizes and types of gearboxes charged with realistic torque and speed .

In addition, a model railway with locomotives and cars with the, in it's context, unusually large track width 45 mm, which is used for training purposes and for scale testing. The laboratory also possesses measuring equipment for condition monitoring of rail and track switches.

Examples of clients right now is the Transport Administration, Vossloh Nordic Switch Systems AB, Infranord and SKF.
