Since its found- ing in 1985,
Schilling Robotics has designed and manufactured remotely operated equipment for underwater envi- ronments. The company's initial products were remote manipulator systems, and Schilling quickly became a leading supplier of manipu- lator systems for the ROVs and cable trenching machines used in offshore oil, telecommunications, scientific, and military operations.
More than 20 years later, the com- pany continues to specialize in the design, development, manufacture, and field service of remotely operated systems. Products now include elec- tric and hydraulic work-class remote- ly operated vehicles (ROVs), and
Schilling's QUEST ROV was the first commercially available electric work- class system.
Schilling Robotics produces the
Remote Systems Engine (RSE), a set of modular equipment items for underwater propulsion, actuation, control, and communication.
Products include the QUEST electric work-class remotely operated vehicle (ROV) system, a complete family of hydraulic ROVs, and four standard remote manipulator systems. All
Schilling ROVs are based on RSE building blocks.
The QUEST electric ROV, which delivers performance equivalent to a 100-hp system, offers speed, simplic- ity, small size, light weight, and exceptional capability.
Schilling offers four standard telero- botic manipulator systems (the
TITAN 4, CONAN, ORION, and
RigMaster) with a wide range of functions, sizes, lift capacities, ranges of motion, control systems, and dex- terities. In the dexterous, seven-func- tion, titanium TITAN 4, all subsea electronics are inside the manipulator arm, which increases reliability, enhances troubleshooting, and decreases weight and spares require- ments.
