ICM » Capabilities

ICM offers integration solutions for virtually any application.

Climber with EMAT NDT sensors & mechanical cleaning brush.

Mechanical Abraders

  • ROTOPEEN: Ideal for coating removal

  • STARCUTTER: Ideal for contamination removal on concrete

  • WIRE BRUSH: Ideal for removal of blistered or flaking coatings

  • NYLON BRUSH: Ideal for surface cleaning

For lead paint removal, coating removal, surface preparation, radiological, chemical, biological cleanup, the use of Mechanical Abraders is critical because no "secondary waste" is generated.

Non-Aggressive Surface Cleaning

  • Proprietary nylon brush cleaning with water injection


NDT (Non-Destructive Testing)

  • Coating thickness (dry film thickness gauge)

  • Wall thickness measuring / corrosion inspections

  • Radiological testing and surveys

  • Crack and surface flaw detection

  • Ultrasonic testing


Remote Camera Inspection

  • Visual inspections

  • Pan, tilt, zoom


Pressure-Fed Paint Roller

  • Remote-controlled application of most paints and mastics

  • No over-spray


Paint & Mastic Spray Head

  • Standard paints & coatings

  • Plural-component epoxy

On-Board Laser

  • For coating removal. decontamination, surface preparation and surface cleaning. No secondary waste. Efficient. Fast.


Crack Injection

  • Pumping epoxies, urethanes, other polymers or cementious materials to the machines give them the capability of performing remote-controlled crack and damage repair.


Sand Blasting

  • Virtually any sand/grit media can be delivered from ICM machines and captured at the source, thus eliminating tenting/containment structure.


Water Blasting

  • Ultra pressure, high pressure, or low pressure water delivery systems can be attached to ICM climbing machines and the water completely contained and capture.


Your Technology

  • ICM is receptive to discussing technology partnering, joint ventures and licensing opportunities with you
