ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, October 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — Helical Robotics and RISQ Robotics announced today that RISQ Robotics has been granted exclusive distribution rights to Helical Robotics proprietary robotic platform technology in The Netherlands, and non-exclusive distribution within the European Union. The technology will be used by RISQ perform service as well as offer revolutionary products for construction, operations, and maintenance.
“We are pleased to add RISQ Robotics team of experts to our distribution network,” said Bruce Schlee, CEO of Helical Robotics. “RISQ will not only be marketing and selling our products in The Netherlands and beyond, they will be offering service. This greatly expands and enhances the outreach of Helical Robots as well as giving us a partner that can offer real-time feedback about the market.”
The technology and platforms Helical Robotics develops allows for integrating industrial equipment into mobile magnetic robotic systems. The ability to seamlessly transition from a curved to flat surface or from one diameter of pipe to another dramatically changes infrastructure construction in ship building, mining, oil and gas, power generation and other industries.” Helical will continue to develop and market its robotic systems in manufacturing, inspection, and military among other markets.
“Working with Helical Robotics gives RISQ a unique competitive advantage in the NDT market” according to Bram Boeren, President of RISQ Robotics. “Helical is the first industrial robot to be utilized by RISQ for video and coating thickness inspections. We will work with Helical to develop and distribute additional robotic solutions based on customer need, as well as continue to negotiate with others to increase RISQ’s offerings.
RISQ Robotics will be the exclusive distributor of Helical Robotics systems in The Netherlands for non-licensed products. Helical Robotics and RISQ Robotics will work together to streamline product development and system implementation. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
