Our core technology, the highly flexible and adaptable snake-arm robot, has a reach exceeding eight metres and a cumulative bend of up to 180 degrees. Driven by wire ropes and controlled by Garuda Robotics’ proprietary software, the snake-arm robots can traverse confined, cluttered and hazardous environments to conduct activities such as inspection, fastening and cleaning when integrated with off-the-shelf or custom-designed tools. The motors, electronics and control systems of the robots can work outside of a tight space with only the arm itself being deployed inside. The arms have a hollow core to route through cabling, hoses and other equipment associated with the tool, using an end effector to install parts or check fuel tanks of aeroplanes, or even inspect components of satellites in space.
Snake Arm Robotics
Using Garuda Robotics' innovative technology and intelligent software, we are helping support aircraft engine and fuel tank inspection teams around the world, reducing their maintenance burden and enabling faster engine dispositions and microbiological de-contamination, even in remote locations. With up to 32 degrees of freedom, snake-arm robots can reduce the need for human entry into enclosed aircraft sections. A range of modular end effectors allows processes such as swaging, sealing and quality control to be conducted safely and remotely on the production line. The robots can be tailor-made, with different end effectors such as cameras, special arms or laser cutters for metal or concrete. They can be installed in a fixed location or a moveable platform, as part of an industrial robot or an automated guided vehicle (AGV).
