Robotics event on the agenda

ASME’s Robotics for Inspection and Maintenance event will take place in College Station in Texas, US on 9–10 December 2020.

The in-person event aims to bridge the gap between expert and asset when it comes to robotics, a usage that is largely growing in popularity across several industries including pipeline inspections.

ASME said companies are spending approximately more than $40 billion per year on inspections alone and even more on maintenance.

“With expenditures this large it is important to make sure that these inspections are thoroughly detecting and effectively predicting corrosion, leaks and defects to signal any impending problems,” said ASME.

To help businesses optimise inspections, maintenance and repair while simultaneously improving safety and lowering costs, the event will offer a combination of live demonstrations, case studies and expert discussions.

Attendees will be able to learn about the latest robotic technology for improved safety and accuracy, increased speed and cost savings while watching live action vessels, aerial systems and mobile robots.

The event is currently scheduled to take place as planned; however, ASME is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation to ensure the health and safety of the event, conference participants and staff, and will advise of any changes.
