Series II X125 System

A highly flexible snake-arm robot which can perform essential tasks in areas beyond human reach. The arm has 225 degrees of cumulative bend and an independently controlled tip. A range of end effectors applicable to many different applications are available. These include cameras, lighting and high-pressure water-jet cleaning heads. The snake-arm robot can be sleeved, providing protection from harsh or contaminated environments, without restricting the robot's motion. The snake-arm robot actuator packs have expected lifetimes of tens of thousands of hours, while the easily replaceable arms have been proven to have lifetimes in demanding industrial applications exceeding 4000 hours.
