Bridge Inspections Get a New Robot.
Robotic wire rope inspections find section loss without wedging a cable apart utilizing modern technology and robotics for wire rope inspections.
Wire ropes are critical to many of our most important tools and infrastructure assets. Deteriorated suspension and suspendor cables on bridges can lead to bridge and roadway failure. It is important to regularly inspect wire ropes beyond the visual manual inspections that have been conducted in the past. IPC’s wire rope inspection service does just that by peering through the steel strands to look for section loss caused by unplanned stresses and corrosion. IPC’s robotic wire rope inspection service inspects the entire cable and issues that are found can be addressed based on their severity.
This is a major advancement for the bridge inspection industry as well as other mission critical wire ropes. Wire rope inspections are a part of IPC’s CableScan services to provide quantitative condition assessment data to asset owners.
Benefits of IPC’s wire rope inspection include:
- Lightweight and portable
- Locates Broken Wires
- Quantitative Results
- Fast interpretation
- Detailed Reports
- Proven Results
