DOOBAE SYSTEM Co., Ltd. (www.doobae.co.kr) is a Korean service robot company established in 1999. They developed the indoor multi refractive water pipe diagnostic robot and robots for seabed drilling. Currently, the company is developing power sources to be used in the development of harbor wall mobile robots, blood vessel treatment robots, and ultra-large sized robots.
DOOBAE SYSTEM is a deceptively small and unheard of company among some of the flashier names in the robot business, but within the field of work robots, the company has made a name for itself as a technology-intensive company. They have developed more than 100 robots, including 10 government-funded projects. The company’s main products include the medium long-range pipe inspection robots, micro pipe inspection robots, industrial electronic endoscope, deep-water exploration robots, and made-to-order customized and work robots.
▲ Pipe Visual Inspection Robot
The Pipe Visual Inspection Robot was made for visual inspection of the surface of the interior of micro pipes with diameters from 15, 45, 80mm to those in excess of 1000mm, as well as foreign substances. It can rise, fall, and move through the bends. Depending on the type of equipment, the robot is mounted with a 26 times optical zoom function, allowing close investigations of even fine microscopic material and surface conditions. Depending on the specifications, the user can add to the robot’s operation functions so the robot’s condition and detection of foreign substances can be received in real time in multi-channel videos.
▲ Electronics Endoscope
The Electronics Endoscope can be applied to equipment with head diameter within 1mm ~ 15mm to 100mm. In particular, it has acquired the NET (New Excellent Technology) certification as exclusive technology applied to multi-refraction pipe systems technology. The industrial endoscope is a visual inspection device that can be remotely controlled and used to diagnose various standards of pipes with diameters of 1mm to underwater bridges.
▲ Under Water System
The Under Water System is an underwater robot that was developed as a way to inspect the spent fuel rods at a nuclear power plant, and as such, can withstand 40,000Rad of radiation. This equipment is used for the inspection of the underground water transport pipes under the nuclear reactor for visual inspection of marine and offshore conditions but can be used for other purposes related to aquatic investigations. Depending on the type, it is the world’s first mobile submarine seabed surveying equipment for exploration of underwater structure construction, ocean bridge construction and marine geological resource investigation, and is expected to be groundbreaking in future marine resources and marine construction industries. Applications include exploration of underground water, nuclear power plants, naval vessels, ecosystem fisheries, leisure, underwater transport, offshore resource exploration and offshore construction.
▲Submarine exploration robot
The submarine exploration robot is an unmanned automated ground exploration robot that can be remotely controlled by a wired line based on the sea floor. Depending on the specifications, in a short period of time the robot can drill 50 to 100 m in conditions of water depth of 100 to over 1000m for ocean floor construction and ocean floor resource excavation. It is capable of seabed drilling, sampling, and standard pipe setting. Applications include seabed geotechnical exploration, excavation, and soil analysis.
▲custom made robots
The company’s custom made robots can be specifically designed for specialized diagnosis and operation functions for use in seabed excavations, ship surface, groundwater, nuclear, shallow water, deap sea, seabed resources, ground, water, gas, chemical plants, safety inspections, and defence systems.
In addition to its custom made robots, DOOBAE SYSTEM has plans to ramp up efforts to commercialize their own in-house robots.
