Sarcos Robotics chooses MFE Rentals as resale partner for its snake-like robot

Sarcos Robotics and MFE Rentals have agreed a partnership giving MFE Rentals customers premier access to the snake-like Guardian S robotic crawler system (main picture).

The Guardian S is a compact, multi-purpose remote visual inspection tool designed to traverse challenging terrain while maintaining real-time two-way video, voice and data communication.

Sarcos says the Guardian S robot, created and built in the United States, is designed to navigate unstructured and unpredictable environments that previously no other crawler had the capabilities to access.

Its compact, low-profile design, slim form, and waterproof structure are optimal for inspecting narrow piping and traversing vertical ferromagnetic surfaces, stairs, tanks, and culverts.

This technology will provide operators with a detailed view of the terrain, all while maintaining a safe distance.

As a Sarcos Robotics official rental and resale partner, MFE Rentals says the inclusion of the Guardian S robot in their equipment arsenal will save MFE customers time and money.

Susan Nulph, MFE Rentals sales manager, says: “The Guardian S robot has six cameras and magnetic tracks so it can crawl up metal platforms and has unique features for traveling over obstacles.

“Its potential to save time and money while avoiding putting humans in areas they couldn’t or shouldn’t safely go is exceptional.”

Ideally suited for commercial, industrial, public safety, and defense applications, the Guardian S robot delivers extended run times and long-range wireless operations, making inspections and remote surveillance safer and more effective than ever before.

Jim Ryder, chief revenue officer of Sarcos Robotics, says: “We are pleased to be working with MFE Rentals as an Official Rental and Resale Partner of our Guardian S robot.

“MFE Rentals has extensive knowledge and experience offering tools and services for industrial inspections, and we look forward to utilizing their expertise and relationships to deploy the Guardian S robot across a variety of industries for remote visual inspections.”

The Guardian S robot is now available to rent through MFE Rentals.
