This week’s #InuktunInTheWild sighting is courtesy of Promation Nuclear, a leading Canadian supplier of automated tooling and systems for nuclear maintenance and refurbishment applications, and another great example of an OEM taking advantage of our easily integrated IM3™ (Multi-Mission Modular) technology. Companies that build their own remotely operated inspection systems or robotic tools don’t always have the time or resources to design everything from the ground up. For imaging applications or sensor delivery projects, Inuktun offers OEM clients a range of camera and crawler components that are easily integrated into their systems. IM3™ modules are proven to work reliably and effectively across a myriad of real-world applications.
Promation Nuclear recently integrated Inuktun Minitracs™ into a robotic platform driven by Inuktun ICON™ control software and includes a Yaskawa MotoMini robot controlled remotely with an innovative, immersive Virtual Reality human interface, IRIS, developed by Taiga Robotics. This robotic crawler is being developed to perform remote-controlled operations in high radiation areas of nuclear power plants like nuclear reactors. Recently demonstrated at the Nuclear Innovation Institute (NII) Innovation Showcase, the system received positive feedback from many nuclear industry stakeholders. Inuktun’s robotic crawler and inspection camera systems are no stranger to the nuclear industry. Learn how IM3™ technology is being used for the Fukushima nuclear remediation efforts here, how an OnSpec Custom Solution allowed inspection of nuclear waste storage units here, and how the US Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management employs their Inuktun Versatrax 450™ robotic crawler to remotely collect nuclear waste samples from tanks here.
Learn more about Inuktun Minitrac™ crawler tracks here and contact our friendly and knowledgeable team for a robotic solution for your remote visual inspection and nondestructive testing needs today. Submit your photos and/or videos of our IM3™ technology on the job or at your office, and it could end up being the next #InuktunInTheWild sighting on Inuktun’s blog.
