Research and development of non-destructive inspection method for pipes.
Most of the metallic pipes that are used in plant facilities suffer from internal corrosion that reduce their wall thickness leading to accidents and troubles so it is necessary to inspect those regularly. Pipes in high places or in places with difficult access can not be inspected easily leading to an increase of the time and cost needed.
To address those problems, we are pursuing research and development of a new sensor that can be used to estimate thinning inside pipes from a remote place.
We have already developed a new theory and tested it successfully. We are now continuing our research for this new technology to be commercializable.
- Measurement on the surface of the pipe with an infrared camera
- Numerical analysis of the acquired data
- Analysis of the numerical analysis results to determine presence or absence of thinning
Explosion-proof work robot manufacturing · explosion-proof equipment development consulting
We design and manufacture autonomous mobile robots that can work in flammable gas filled environment that may explode. This robot has been introduced to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
Maintenance area intrusion detection equipment [NioH]
[NioH] constantly measures the three-dimensional position of all incoming vehicles travelling at high speed (detection up to 300 meters) and immediately detects vehicles entering the lane under maintenance.
Unmanned construction by remotely controlled heavy machinery
A camera and a radio control system are installed on a heavy equipment for it to be controlled remotely by wireless image transmission.
