Definition - What does Milling Robot mean?
A milling robot is a remotely controlled robot that can perform in situ pipe rehabilitation. Milling robots come in a variety of sizes and can change the attachments they use in order to adapt to project demands. Some milling robots are fitted with a camera to enable the operator to watch the operation in real time.
Trenchlesspedia explains Milling Robot
Milling robots are typically pneumatically or electrically driven which reduces noise pollution and allows work to continue in noise sensitive areas, especially during specific times. These robots also provide the added benefit of reducing time on site because of the ability to work in hard to reach areas. Multifuctional milling robots can switch attachments and have wheels which extend their versatility even more, allowing them to enter pipes with different profiles which thereby increases their application uses. Milling robots can perform virtually any task necessary for pipe rehabilitation from milling, chiseling, maneuvering packers, sealing and plugging.
