You bring the sensor, and we’ll provide the transporter. Inuktun’s unique Multi-Mission Modular (IM3) technology can integrate and mobilize your instruments and nondestructive testing (NDT) tools. Rather than reinvent the wheel, the Power Construction Corporation of China (POWERCHINA) engaged Hangzhou Inuktun Robots Ltd. (Inuktun China) to supply a mobile platform to drive its FARO 3D laser scanner.
Enter the MicroMag™…kinda. Aptly dubbed the “MegaMag” here at the home office, a custom magnetic crawler was designed using the same platform concept as Inuktun’s MicroMag™ miniature magnetic crawler. The new, larger magnetic chassis was designed to house our 7000 series Minitracs™ and an onboard power supply for POWERCHINA’s scanner. Because the “MegaMag” was required to scan a nine (9) metre diameter, 180 metre long pipe, space limitations were not a concern. The Minitracs™ were offer more power and more surface area than the smaller Microtracs™, allowing the vehicle to maneuver up and down the wet and slippery pipe and climb over three (3) centimetre concrete scarps and a thin layer of sediment. And the new “MegaMag” is already generating interest in other areas – a new system was just shipped to another client for ship hull cleaning.
Our IM3 technology goes the distance with your original NDT equipment. Let’s get this partnership moving! Contact our team for more information now.
