HDT’s underwater arm can turn an inspection-class Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) into a work-class ROV. With a tip gripper force over 20 pounds (100 N), this electrically-powered arm can perform demanding tasks.
The arm is easy to install on a range of ROVs. All the electronics are built into the arm, so there is no separate electronics box. Topside, the arm is simple to control, with very little training.
HDT’s underwater manipulator arm has an operating depth of 100 meters. The highly dexterous arm shown above has seven joints, plus a two-jaw gripper. Because our arms are modular, we can custom configure your arm with the number of joints and the lengths of segments that you need.
