The solution for automated remote inspection of pipes, drums and vessels.

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 and keeping operators safe with a remote operating system.

HIGH FLEXIBILITY

Whether you are looking at NDT applications such as Ultrasonics / Eddy Current or you want to perform visual inspection – with the modular FAST platform you have an all-in-one system. The change from one application to another is done in less than a minute.

UNMATCHED 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.

LIGHTWEIGHT WITH MINIMUM SYSTEM HEIGHT

With an 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.

FIELD SERVICE PROVEN RELIABILITY

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.

MODULARITY

Due to its modular design the FAST platfrom can be adapted to new applications quickly and easily. For example the change from a circumferential scan path to an axial scan is done in less than a minute. The modular scan axis package includes 2 sets of rails, capable of performing four kinds of inspection types:

FAST RVI

The solution for remote visual inspection of tanks, vessels and pipes. Access areas that could not be accessed by human, get more coverage, inspect behind baffles & obstacles. Eliminate human entry in confined spaces and perform visual inspections from a safe & remote location.

FAST UT

This innovative technology is using an industrial camera to recognize a weld seam. Image processing algorithms constantly extract the weld features from the image stream and determine its center position. The information is sent to the on-board motor controllers which maneuver the robot precisely along the weld.

FAST CLEANING

Using a 3D laser scanner on the FAST platform enables the operator to precisely control and steer the robot in hidden environments. First a 3D point cloud is creted which is meshed to a full 3D model of the envirnoment.
