Pipe inspection with top power density.

Pipe inspection with top power density.

Imagine the drain is clogged and not a single drop is flowing down any more. A common problem – the cause can be hidden in the far corners of a sewage system. This is where inspection robots come into play to hunt for the cause. Motors by maxon motor provide the robotic vehicles with a precision drive, among other uses.

Robots are increasingly being used for fully automated tasks that are too dangerous, monotonous or when it would be unreasonable to ask a human to perform the task. For example, today innovative systems such as inspection robots for sewage ducts are used worldwide for high-precision damage detection. There are even inspection robots that can climb 90 m high onto wind turbines to inspect the rotor blades of the wind energy generators. Underground sewage pipelines that stretch across many kilometres are also highly complex systems. These systems have to function reliably at all times. Regular inspection is therefore mandatory, to avoid damage caused by corrosion, cracks and mechanical wear. Yet the narrow, labyrinthine sewer systems are frequently inaccessible for humans – this is where only technical equipment can save the day.

Today many different devices are available, for everything from inspections to remedying faults and breakdowns. Depending on the type of application, the sewer robots come in different sizes and with different tools and other specific features. From simple inspection units to complete systems, iPEK International GmbH based in Sulzberg (Germany) and Hirschegg (Austria) provides a wide range of robots for pipe and sewer inspections. The company, which was founded in 1988, develops camera systems and driving units for sewer inspection, for example the modular “ROVION®” inspection system.

    Hello, I do think your web site could possibly be having web browser
    compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine
    however, when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, wonderful site!
