DT640 MAG Magnetic Utility Crawler

$16,998 USD

Need to perform an inspection at a tough to reach location along a steel surface like a hull of a ship or in a vertical shaft? Stick the DT640 Magnetic Crawler to the ferrous surface and drive along it instead of setting up scaffolding, fighting current underwater or getting confined space specialists to get the job done.

DT640 Magnetic Utility Crawler for inspections and non destructive testing of ship hulls, steel pipes, turbines and more.

The DT640 is a three wheeled crawler, with magnets inside of the wheel hubs and a silicon and rubber cover for traction and to avoid damaging the surface it is driving on. The magnets allow the vehicle to "stick" to a steel or ferrous surface, driving vertically or even upside down on the steel. The back pivot wheel is able to turn 360 degrees, allowing the vehicle to turn in one position with zero turning radius, making it extremely maneueverable. The vehicle is not able to jump from one surface to another via a quick angle or obstacle, however it can drive through marine growth and around smooth bends and surfaces, making it ideal for larger diameter pipes and ship hulls. The crawler is equipped with a forward facing camera and LED floodlights, allowing you to see live from the handheld controller that is connected via tether to the crawler what it is seeing, making it an effective inspection and survey tool. The advantage of being attached to the surface is that it can hold steady even in high water currents and deploy a variety of tools while operating, such as a thickness gauge, pressure washer head or imaging sonar.

Visual surveys made easy

Scan a hull for contraband, fouling or damage using the camera or the imaging sonar add on for murky water applications or to save time spent evaluating the hull.

Robust design

Built with anodized aluminum and utilizing our innovative magnetically coupled drive design, the crawler requires no ongoing maintenance and is built to withstand the punishment of the tough tasks our customers send its way.

Get more data out of your inspection

Integrate the ultrasonic thickness gauge to understand the extent of corrosion at different spots along the hull or pipe as part of a proactive structural maintenance plan.
