FAQ's

Can I use my existing Wheel Press Recorder?
Yes! The latest version Wheel Press Recorder for Freight Cars and version 5.x of the Wheel Shop Management Suite is CEPM ready. If you are still using version 4.x, you must upgrade.

Will the Wheel Press Recorder work with 2D barcodes?
Yes!. Version 5 of the WPR understands all 2D barcodes and reads the new CEPM required data. It also makes sure that all CEPM required data is entered before saving the wheelset.

Will the Wheel Press Gauge work with CEPM?
No. If  you purchase our Final Inspection Station you  will be able to scan all of the barcodes on a wheel set in one location and register the wheelset with our Registration Server. It does not integrate with the WPG so you must continue to use your WPG's paper charts.

How do I print the CEPM labels?
There is no need to print CEPM labels. You can use pre-printed labels that are serialized. Just apply one to each component and register that component ID number with that component. If you are a reconditioner or a new component supplier, our Print Shop will print your CEPM labels.

How do I print the Castings 2D Barcode Labels?
There is no 2D label for castings. The castings committe decided that the only label required woudl be the 1D Component ID label like that for the Wheelset. If you make or recondition castings, you will be required to register the casting component with Railinc and apply a CID label. These are typically pre-printed.

If you are a castings reconditioner, you will be required to apply a 1D Component label.
