It was the Spring of 2012 when an engineer from a nearby power plant came to Grove City College with a problem that had plagued him and power plants across the country for as long as plants have been around. How do you do true, predictive maintenance on boilers when you’re only inspecting by hand every 6’-8’? How do you make informed decisions to prevent forced outages when you can only see 1% of the entire boiler?
Gecko Robotics became the solution to that problem. A team of engineering students created the first iteration of robotic technology to scan boiler walls using ultrasound transducers and a HD visual camera.
Since then, we’ve developed multiple different types of inspection robots servicing multiple industrial industries and performing a variety of NDE testing methods.
Safety is the most important part of performing work in an industrial setting. Gecko Robotics has produced the safest inspection methods in the industry. We accomplish this through following strict policies and practices outlined in our Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) policy handbook.
Gecko maintains management systems designed to assure compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and internal requirements as well as to facilitate the continuous improvement of our processes, products, and personnel. We do this to ensure all services performed are done so to the highest standards.
At Gecko Robotics, we believe that the quality of each hire directly results in the quality of our services. This is why we only hire the most qualified technicians and engineers to ensure each and every job is completed to the highest standards every time. All of our team members undergo extensive training to assure the highest quality inspection possible. Additional training and documentation are required based on specific technical job requirements.
