About us

The Company

Lynxrail is the railroad technology division of Lynx Engineering Consultants Pty Ltd, a privately owned company established in 1993 in Perth, Australia. We target the high-tech end of the rail industry, striving to be at the forefront of innovation, and have created many industry-first engineering solutions for our clients.  We are technology leaders and it was our work in the iron-ore railways of the Pilbara region in Australia during the 1990s that led to the development of our wayside rolling stock condition-based monitoring systems.  We invest heavily in research and development and make use of the significant advances in optics and electronics to continually improve our technology. Our systems are based on the image capture of rolling stock components with high definition digital cameras as the vehicles are travelling in normal service.  These images are processed using machine vision technology to produce dimensional and serviceability information about the components.  

In addition to our condition monitoring technology, we design wagons for heavy-haul railways that are lighter and have increased carrying capacity compared to the competitors.

Our head office is located in Perth, Western Australia. We also have offices in Queensland, Australia, in Colorado Springs, USA and Warsaw, Poland.  

We are certified to ISO 9001:2008, International OHSAS 18001:2007 OH&S Management Systems and Australia/New Zealand AS/NZS 4801 OH&S Management Systems for the provision of video imaging systems for railways and our technology is protected by several patents.
