OC Robotics Snake Arm
Reaching the unreachable
Industrial constructions and projects are generally grand. Yet the key to successful operation depends on little details that are often no easy access for inspection and maintenance. The snake robotic arm invented by OC Robotics provides an effective solution to access confined and hazardous space that is off limits to conventional human or machines.
Designed to be slim and flexible, the snake arm can skillfully fit and move through small gaps in between industrial objects. The snake-like wriggling movement is attributed to the mechanical power provided by maxon motors (located in an actuator at the base of the robot) and self-supporting joints to stabilize continuous changes of directions.
