Russia develops multifunctional robot for radiation work

18 July 2023

Intechros, a Russian manufacturer of hydraulic robots, has developed a multifunctional robot ROIN RTS P300T, which performs engineering tasks in a hazardous radiation environment. The robot was ordered by the Russian Federal Nuclear Centre - YI Zababakhin All-Russian Institute of Technical Physics (RFNC VNIITF)

R300T is a modification of the medium series ROIN R300. Its modular design makes possible to use different configurations of the manipulator on a single platform. P300T has the longest manipulator in the series with a reach of up to 9 metres. It is designed to remotely perform operations for the transfer and collection of radioactive waste in a cubic storage facility with sides of 4 metres. ROIN makes it possible to extract objects of various morphologies from canyons and pools where there is ionising radiation with a power of up to 73 Gray/hour. The electrical system of ROIN R300T is protected by special cabinets that increase resistance up to 360 Gray.

It can operate in ambient temperatures from -50°C to +50°C, which expands the geography of its use to all climatic zones. The machine comes with hydraulic shears, clamshell grippers, hydraulic hammer, buckets and other attachments.

It is controlled remotely by one operator using a portable remote control and four video cameras with Full HD resolution. The operator can be at a distance of up to 5 km from the robot and initially will undertake work preparation in a special training simulator.
