OC Robotics worked closely with Salvarem and Areva NC to demonstrate the remote-handling capability of a snake-arm robot in a confined and hazardous environment. Snake-arm robots are general purpose delivery tools for confined space working in hazardous areas.
OC Robotics designs and manufactures snake-arm robots, which are specifically designed to perform remote handling operations in confined and hazardous spaces. OC Robotics has delivered robots for industries spanning - amongst others - nuclear, aerospace, medical and security. It has also provided consultancy and analysis services for these sectors.
Snake-arm robots have a long, slender and flexible design, fitting effortlessly through small openings and around obstacles. Snake-arm robots do not need support from the environment, which means that they can navigate through an open space, avoiding obstacles, carrying tools and conducting work.
