Due to its modular design the FAST platform can be adapted to new applications quickly and easily. The focus of the platform is to perform a wide range of NDT inspections such as Ultrasonics or Visual Inspections.
All modules designed for the FAST platform are easy and quick to interchange. The control & user interface automatically detects changes in configuration and adapts to the new inspection type.
high precision & repeatability
Automated driving combined with active slippage control (ASC) provides precise position control all the time – every time. This is ideal for monitoring applications where repeatability and accuracy counts.
The FAST robotic platform was developed in close collaboration with asset owners and inspection service providers in oil&gas and power generation to meet your specific needs. Leading edge mobile robotic technology was translated into a robust and field service proven robotic solution, providing unmatched repeatability andkeeping operators safe with a remote operating System.
With a system height below 15cm (6”) the system can access areas that were impossible to access by operators. Obstacles in tanks and pipes are not an issue any more. The weight of the full system is below 14kg (<31 pounds), meaning it can be easily deployed and hand-carried by one operator.
Numerous site inspections and closed feedback loops with our lead customers led to a robust and trustworthy design of the FAST system. Reliable after sales services and low maintenance efforts complete the package.
