Tready Robot Uses Treaded Flippers
Posted: 2021-10-22When it comes to robots designed for traversing rough terrain, there are typically treaded and legged models. The new Tready robot, however, combines the best of both approaches, by utilizing its four treaded "flippers."
Manufactured by Pittsburgh-based HEBI Robotics, the bot is designed for applications such as search and rescue, industrial inspection, or simply the study of robotics. "Tready is for anyone interested in a rugged and dextrous mobile robot that navigates many different terrains," th...Read More.
Give Your Wind Blade Inspection an Extra-Large Efficiency Boost
Posted: 2021-10-22To optimize the performance of our ultrasonic testing (UT) solutions for the wind energy industry, our experts have developed specialized probes, wedges, and scanners that address the problems associated with wind turbine blade inspection applications.
For wind blades, in addition to the time-consuming size of the inspection, there is also the issue of the high sound attenuation of the materials, including thick composites (glass-fiber- or carbon-fiber-reinforced materials) and epoxy adhesive.
