Linemaster Robotic Arm
We have acted as the sole structural design and engineering representative for an Alberta Utility equipment manufacturer for over 20 years. The manufacturer has been at the forefront of providing innovative robotic crane attachments for supporting conductors while keeping electrical systems in service.
From conception to application we have been involved in the structural design for various models of extendable and rotatable linearms.
The project photos show a 240KV tower move near Brooks, Alberta being completed with the energized conductors captured and pulled back using two robotic arm attachments. Each arm is designed with an approved per phase structural rating allowance of 1,600 lbs vertical and 500 lbs bisect certified by Kova Engineering South Ltd.
