Development of an automated system for cavitation repairing in rotors of large hydroelectric plants


This paper describes an automated system called Roboturb, designed for inspection and maintenance tasks of rotor blades of hydroelectric turbines damaged by cavitation. The main element of this system is a robotic device, with six rotative joints, designed to displace on a portable and flexible rail, configuring a redundant robot with seven degrees of… (More)
