Snake Arm Robots For Flexible Reach

OC Robotics announced two contracts in December:

Completed a contract with Comau Pico Inc. studying the use of snake-arm robots for aerospace coating applications.
"Currently, standard industrial robots are used to coat the surfaces of separate parts of a structure before it is assembled. These robots are not able to reach the most awkward areas of the assembly.

"...completed an initial contract with British Nuclear Group Sellafield Ltd to conduct a feasibility study and specify a design for a snake-arm robot for use at Sellafield. The proposed snake-arm will be OCRobotics' longest, at around 10 metres, and is intended for inspection, instrumentation and repair activities on site."
