World’s Smallest Hydrodemolition Robot
The world’s smallest and most flexible Hydrodemolition robot, the Aqua Cutter 410, offering increased versatility for working in confined areas such as concrete sewer pipes, is introduced by Aquajet Systems; retaining all its “big brothers” features.
Hydrodemolition specialist Aquajet Systems AB launched the world’s smallest Hydrodemolition robot, the Aqua Cutter 410 at bauma 2013; offering increased versatility, productivity and ease of operation.
The Aqua Cutter 410 has been designed for Hydrodemolition applications in confined areas such as concrete sewer pipes in urban locations, small tunnels and inside buildings with restricted space.
With dimensions of just 2.0 m x 0.78 m x 0.99 m (LxWxH), the new robot can go through an ordinary door opening and operate inside a concrete pipe, on vertical, horizontal or overhead surfaces.
With a weight of just around 1,000 kg it can also operate from scaffolding.
It will also replace many applications currently performed using manual handlances – a high pressure gun operating at 2,500 bar or more; providing a safer and more accurate operation with the robot.
The 410 robot features a number of tools including a rotor for surface preparation and work inside pipes, a single lance with a 1.5 m front scroud for surface removal and an hydraulically-operated articulated arm with a reach up to 4 m.
The Power Control Module (PCM) can be disconnected from the tracked crawler. This allows the crawler to be driven into unfriendly environments, for example small tunnels suddenly flooded by, heavy rains.
The operator controls and monitors the operation by a remote radio controller so that the machine can be run from a safe distance; ensuring complete control over the robot.
The Aqua Cutter 410 robot is equipped with the patented EDS. Regardless of the set lance attack angle, the system controls and maintains the nozzle distance from the concrete surface.
The patented ISC is an advanced sensing system and features no electronics, such as sensors or cables, exposed to the moisture environs, and resulting in a more efficient production with fewer stops due to problems with sensors, etc.
