Designing visual blade inspection data collection and analysis as an integrated system is what unlocks the highest levels of performance and quality possible. The only way to achieve a fully automatic process is for the analysis system to know exactly what format of data to expect from the data collection system. And a fully automatic system -- from pushing the button to start the inspection to receiving the findings report -- will enable turnaround times for receiving a complete blade damage overview measured in minutes or at most hours versus the days or even weeks that most customers wait today.
Clobotics Digital blade repair, a revolutionary methodology for supporting and documenting a craftsman's work. By using the state of the art technology for assessing the blade condition and documenting electronically the entire blade repair process, Clobotics digitalizes the entire workflow and enables the effective use of artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce both the time and the cost of maintaining WTG machines. The blade repair process is digitalized via our app and supports the repair crew with procedures, work instruction and guidelines during the blade repair. The app ensures that all processes are being followed and documented seamlessly.
Clobotics digital blade repair is based on merging state of the art technology, inhouse training and quality management. It features a seamless monitoring and management of the entire workflow and cost of blade repair campaigns.
