Drones are a relatively new technology that is being used for many applications. We don’t use drones at C&C Machine, but some of our customers could benefit from their use. This article from Air Drone Craze lists twelve non-military uses.
The most interesting uses to us were:
Structural Safety Inspections
The use here could be on systems like oil and gas pipelines, wind turbines and transmission towers. This method could be more time-efficient and safer than traditional inspection systems.
This could be especially useful for construction sites that are in remote locations. Information could be obtained about the project’s progress in a timely manner.
At C&C Machine, we machine and fabricate components for new technologies.
Let us know how we can be helpful to you.
