Invert Robotics: Technological innovation at the service of Industrial Inspection
Founded in New Zealand 10 years ago, Invert Robotics continues to revolutionize industrial inspection. Equipped with its small robots, true concentrates of technology, the Start Up advocates the principles of safety, precision and speed for all companies attentive to the maintenance of their equipment.
Guarantee Human Safety
Nowadays, the robot is sometimes seen as an invention intended to coldly take the job of men. Robotization is seen as a way to remove all human feelings to increase profitability. Invert Robotics is folding the cards, and going beyond this misconception.
The robot is there to protect humans, not to replace them. In this world where everything is accelerating, sectors such as the food industry are forced to drastically increase their production. Based on this observation, the equipment control procedures are intensifying and in recent years we have noticed a significant increase in the number of work accidents during an inspection. Checking an enclosed area is extremely dangerous, especially in the food industry where tanks, subject to thermal stress, are widely used to dry milk, for example.
Aware of this reality, Invert Robotics is very present in the food sector. The start-up offers remote-controlled robots. The operation is performed remotely which eliminates any risk of serious accident. No need for the inspector to take unreasonable risks, the robot takes care of everything.
100% Reliable Inspection
The sine qua non for an inspection to be virtuous is its reliability. For both preventive and curative maintenance, accurate diagnosis is vital to the business. Neglect can lead to equipment obsolescence at an inappropriate time, or worse a very serious industrial incident, especially in sectors such as petrochemicals or aviation.
Present in these fields, Invert Robotics brings this reliability thanks to its technology. The robots, which are in their 5th generation , are all equipped with sliding suction cups and platforms allowing them to move up and down without fear of a fall. No surface can resist them: magnetic or non-ferromagnetic, subjected to thermal stresses… the robots will always reach the area that the inspector wants them to examine.
Invert Robotics is often very close to watchmaking as the precision brought to the improvements of the robots is impressive. This thoroughness allows users to incorporate additional elements into the robots. The reliability and the 360 degree inspection will still be unchanged despite the added weight.
One of the problems of human industrial inspection is the limitation of the human eye. Detecting the infinitely small is not part of his abilities. Unfortunately failures are often caused by defects measured in microns. The robots are equipped with on-board cameras which provide direct visual feedback to the inspector controlling it. These ultra high definition cameras locate, thanks to their 30x zooms, anything that is undetectable to the naked eye. The high performance vision is coupled with a probe which calculates in real time the size of a crack in order to be able to take the necessary measures.
All the information collected by the robot is used to write an inspection report that the company concerned can reuse as it sees fit.
Reliability Combined With Logistics Speed
Invert Robotics technology saves considerable time for its users. First, the robot is very easy to move. Rather light, the robot can easily travel by plane: mobility that allows companies around the world to benefit from it.
Second, once the robot is there, it is deployable in 20 minutes. During its operation, it is checked by a qualified operator who has been trained for 6 months in its use. The operationality provided by the Start Up makes it possible not to freeze the inspected company. The operations are carried out in a maximum of 2 hours and directly in front of the customers, allowing a rapid resumption of activity without anxiety.
A Rapidly Expanding But Reasoned Start Up
In a few years, Invert Robotic has experienced impressive development. Double-digit growth and above all a technological level such that it is sometimes too far ahead for the market. Despite everything, the Start Up keeps a cool head and chooses reasoned growth. Present in the pharmaceutical, agro-food, chemical and aeronautical sectors, Invert Robotics does not give in to the sirens of overproduction for more profit. First, because in certain sectors it would not be viable given the presence of robotics juggernaut. It is also a way of controlling and maintaining the high quality requirements linked to technology.
Invert Robotics prefers to take its time and remain realistic in its service proposals. For each request, the start-up sets up a research and development department responsible for carrying out a feasibility study. A work ethic has enabled Invert Robotics to offer solutions adapted to each customer case to be at the forefront of industrial inspection technology.
