Column and Shaft Inspections Go Robotic

October 29th, 2018   Author: Doug Thaler

Column and shaft inspections have been inspected manually for years. Current inspections allow for an inspector to be lowered down a bridge column or shaft, sometimes with oxygen. New non-destructive testing methods that utilize robotics and advanced non-destructive testing can better assess shafts and columns than ever before. 

 

Inspectors can remain outside of the danger zone and inspect a bridge shaft or column with much more detail and accuracy than ever before.

 

Infrastructure Preservation Corporation, IPC has developed advanced robotic column and shaft inspections to provide more quantitative data in a safer manner. All inspections exceed FHWA and AASHTO protocols.
