Nexxis and Blueprint Lab collaborate on remote maintenance inspection tools

A partnerhip between two leaders in the robotics industry is, the companies say, set to bring the latest inspection technology to industries such as mining, enhancing capabilities in Australia and USA.

Western Australia-based robotic inspection and testing solution provider, Nexxis, has entered a partnership agreement and development collaboration with, Blueprint Lab, an Australia-based robotics company developing advanced robotic arms for harsh environments.

The partnership will enable the world’s smallest underwater robotic arm – Blueprint Lab’s Reach Alpha – to be used by clients to support the inspection and maintenance of their assets.

Nexxis Founder and CEO, Jason De Silveira, said the partnership was great news for the petrochemical, renewable energy and mining industries, ensuring ongoing access to the latest smart technologies.

“We look forward to continuing to collaborate and develop together, while solving both customer and industry challenges with the right solutions,” he said. “Petrol and chemical processing facilities, and mining and renewable energy sites, have infrastructure that needs regular inspection and maintenance.

“Our exciting partnership will enable Blueprint Lab’s robotic arms to be integrated on Nexxis platforms, utilising our state-of-the-art software and technology to offer a complete comprehensive solution for clients tailored to their individual requirements.”

Last year, Nexxis unveiled what it said was the world’s first fully design-approved EX-rated robotic camera inspection device – Magneto-EX.
