In a future where inspections evolve, driven by innovation, the BIKE platform and Sutro Group play a crucial role in shaping industrial practices.
BIKE Platform: A New Horizon in Inspections
In this era of technological advancement, the BIKE – a magnetic wheeled robot – redefines industrial inspections. Bid farewell to the challenges of human-led assessments as BIKE takes the stage.
Dynamic Features of BIKE: BIKE isn’t your average robot; it’s a dynamic force equipped with magnetic wheels capable of climbing stairs, overcoming obstacles, and navigating 90-degree corners. Imagine the possibilities – inspecting power plant facilities and exploring oil and gas installations without human intervention. BIKE’s navigation cameras and 3D position sensors provide precise information even in complex environments. And that’s not all – additional modules like Ultrasonic probes and borescope holders extend BIKE’s capabilities, offering new avenues for inspection without human interference.
Applications Unleashed: BIKE isn’t just a robot; it’s an ultra-mobile inspection platform ready to tackle challenges. From gas turbine inlets to hydro power stations, pipes, and pressure tanks – BIKE handles it all. It’s not just about its weight (a mere 10kg); it’s about unlocking possibilities. Equipped with Ultrasonic probe modules, BIKE transforms into a precision measurement gauge, effortlessly handling line scans.
Evolutionary Journey of BIKE: The BIKE platform’s journey began at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), evolving from a two-wheeled concept into the robust four-wheeled solution we know today. Over a decade of development, multiple patents, and a commitment to industrial applications have made BIKE a symbol of innovation.
Engineering Brilliance at the Core: BIKE isn’t just about inspection; it’s about overcoming obstacles and showcasing engineering finesse. Envision a robot passing 90-degree corners, navigating interconnected pipes, and even moving upside-down. This isn’t just technology; it’s a demonstration of engineering brilliance. With BIKE, direct access to confined spaces becomes a reality.
Empowering Clients with Excellence: Sutro Group’s commitment to robotics inspection is about empowering our clients. We strive to ensure they experience operational efficiency, regulatory confidence, and fortified asset resilience in a landscape where excellence is a standard, not a spectacle. Together with the BIKE platform, we’re contributing to a future where inspections are practical and transformative experiences.
