Being active in the market of surface preparation for over 10 years, the request has come numerous times to develop a crawler that would perform the subsequent step of corrosion prevention, coating. The answer to this question is coming soon.
Our engineering team is working effortlessly to come up with a solution that will revolutionize the way industrial coatings are applied. For this project we have joined forces with a number of major partners in the field of coating application, as we are convinced that sharing and combining our knowledge will bring out the best available technology in the market.
If this is what you have been waiting for, please sign up to our mailing list and we will keep you posted on the development.

VertiDrive is working on a new coating application solution!
From VertiDrive’s current business and customer demands, it has become clear that the next stepwise improvement in surface / coating maintenance repair and overhaul activities would be the need to not only robotically do preparation and cleaning of metal surfaces, but also (re-)coating (preferably spray) application itself.
The very large improvement step here would be to prevent the (expensive), time-consuming step of building scaffolding (as also dangerous in use) for in this case surface (re-)coating using manual paint roller application.
Recent feedback from our global partners is that at least 50% of all current robotic crawler customers and leads ask for robotic coating functionality proactively.
Beside this we were proactively approached by la number of large Tank Storage Industry players globally in the last couple of years, to discuss, scope and start a Vertidrive robotic driven coating solution for storage tank (re-)coating.
As a result of these scoping activities in January 2020, we were also granted a Dutch government MIT subsidy, in order to boost the VertiDrive M9 coating crawler developments, with a number of Dutch technology partners.
As of 2020, by now also with USA and Australian development partners attached, we are planning a staged global launch plan for M9 coating application robotics.
