Robots for Confined Spaces

There are many industries where gaining access to a confined or hazardous space is a formidable problem. OC Robotics provides the solution in the form of snake-arm robots.

The confined space problem

Confined and hazardous spaces are omnipresent in a variety of industries. Confined spaces are often difficult or impossible to access with a human, but are often also the spaces which require the most inspection and maintenance. The images below present typical confined space challenges in which snake-arm robots can provide a valuable service, including in-wing inspection and working, and nuclear plant inspection and maintenance.

Snake-arm robot solution

Snake-arm robots do not have prominent elbows that potentially snag or cause damage to sensitive equipment, and they are easily manoeuvred into position and retracted back without disturbing their environment.
