Robotics for Corrosion Management, Inspection, and Maintenance

Corrosion Technical Series

Robotics for Corrosion Management, Inspection, and Maintenance

June 1-2, 2021
9 – 11:30 a.m. CST each day
Virtual (Zoom)

This virtual 2-day short course delivers technical and educational content focused on robotics for corrosion and asset integrity management. Industry thought leaders ranging from the product development to end-user side will share their unique perspectives and experiences on in-service inspection, maintenance, and what’s next in robotics technology and data interpretation for the oil and gas, petrochemical, renewables, and infrastructure sectors.

Industries continue to explore the implementation of unmanned solutions to assist in their corrosion and asset integrity management initiatives to create efficiencies and reduce operating expenses while limiting downtime and reducing safety risks for personnel. Learn about which robotics technologies are currently available to perform physicals tasks and conduct remote inspections and maintenance faster, more safely and with increased detection.
