Nuclear environments are some of the world’s most hazardous and high risk spaces to conduct inspection and intervention tasks, requiring technology with high reliability and deployment confidence. Blueprint Lab’s advanced robotic manipulators are designed and proven to withstand harsh environments and enable operators to safely conduct remote operations with success. Our manipulators offer fail-safes, compliant materials and tested solutions in order to maximise productivity. The Reach System can help change and expand the way service providers conduct nuclear service and decommissioning activities remotely.
