AWE recently carried out a technical working demo of the Vertidrive M4.1 surface preparation robot in Dubai for a prestigious customer.

The demo, carried out over 2 days by AWE’s technicians and technical sales team, demonstrated the benefits of the Vertidrive M4.1 in fast and efficient coating removal and full waste containment working on the hull of a container ship. The Vertidrive was supported by its own vacuum recovery/separation system and by a 40k Jetstream Pump skid.

The Vertidrive magnetic robot is simple to set up and operate. With a minimum team size and can cover large areas with no reliance on cranes, forklifts or cherry pickers. This extremely versatile robot is designed for all vertical and horizontal steel coating removal or cleaning applications also being able to cover curved surfaces and navigate welds with no interference to operation.
