The ICM Technology: Small remote-controlled climbing machines operated by a human on the ground, while the machines perform the actual “work”. Thus, the machines are exposed to dangerous heights; the machines are exposed to toxins or contamination; the machines are exposed to the fatigue and effort of the work while the human operator effortlessly controls the machines via control panel/laptop computer.
Held to the surface by vacuum force, the machines adhere to essentially any hard surface: metal, concrete, brick, etc.. The patented, highly flexible seal ensures the machine is securely adhered as it locomotes the machine over surface obstacles such as bolt heads, plates, weld seams or virtually any surface irregularity.
Introducing the New Mini Climber
ICM was tasked with developing a MINI Climber with robotic arm that can position a LASER to remove coatings from complex surfaces within confined spaces within a Nuclear Submarine.
