Focused Technical Workshop Remote Handling 2022
Date and time
Tuesday, 18 October 2022 09:00 - 11:00
Remote handling is a common and important operation in large-scale research facilities. 'Remote handling' is defined as manipulations and operations performed from a distance, by crane, robot, or other technological solution. Reliable solutions are paramount, since the remote handling may take place in radioactive environments or extremely confined areas, and may involve the manipulation of heavy or sensitive components. Another area of expertise is camera inspection combined with remote navigation.
The presentations will describe the types of company profiles that are interesting when the facilities are looking for suppliers. There will also be an update on the upcoming procurements in remote handling.
Join us for constructive discussions about remote hHandling and discover new business opportunities.
