Automate Industrial Inspection Jobs with Taurob

Routine facility inspections are crucial for optimizing maintenance, extending equipment lifespan, minimizing downtime, and boosting productivity. However, traditional inspection methods can be labour-intensive, costly, and potentially hazardous for workers.

Automation technology presents significant opportunities for efficiency gains, cost savings, and enhanced production. Autonomous mobile inspection robots go beyond stationary sensors, offering a scalable and effective method for continuous data collection and analysis. This shift not only enhances the efficiency of inspections and remote operations but also significantly improves safety by reducing human exposure to dangerous environments.

Plant operators across various asset-intensive industries, including oil & gas, chemicals, mining, energy, utilities, and construction, are leveraging autonomous robots to navigate complex, multi-story environments, withstand adverse conditions, and gather valuable operational insights.

Using inspection robots like the Taurob Inspector can enhance efficiency by performing repetitive tasks, gathering and analyzing operational data, and improving safety by operating in hazardous environments.

Selecting the Right Inspection Robot

Choosing the right inspection robot involves several key considerations. It's essential to look beyond the physical robotic platform and evaluate the entire solution from an end-to-end perspective. Key factors include understanding your specific needs, operational environment, safety and security compliance, and the support services available.

Determine Your Inspection Goals

The first step in integrating inspection robots is to clearly define what you aim to achieve. Common goals often include increasing productivity by ensuring higher equipment uptime, extending asset lifespans, and reducing production losses. Another significant objective is to improve safety and sustainability, which involves minimizing hazardous exposure, addressing workforce shortages, and enhancing workforce skills. Optimizing maintenance is also crucial; this can be done by increasing the frequency and accuracy of inspections, conducting inspections during operations, and reducing the costs associated with these inspections. Additionally, accelerating digitalization efforts is essential, which includes creating and maintaining digital facility records, digitizing manual processes, and enabling predictive monitoring and maintenance.

Common Inspection Tasks for Robots

Inspection robots are highly effective in performing a variety of essential and repetitive tasks. These tasks include monitoring assets in operation, which allows for the early detection of equipment failures and helps prevent costly defects and downtime. For this, robots typically require visual optical zoom cameras and directional ultrasonic microphones. Another task is identifying thermal anomalies through automated thermal inspections, which uncover previously undetected equipment issues. This requires high-quality thermal cameras. Detecting gas presence is also a crucial task, involving real-time monitoring of combustible and toxic gas levels to quickly respond to leaks. For this, robots need toxic and/or combustible gas sensors. Finally, enabling reality capture by creating and updating 3D models more accurately and efficiently is another important task, which requires 360° LiDAR scanners.
