Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MAINTAINING MACHINES
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D'ENTRETIEN DE MACHINE
Abstract:
(EN) A system for use in maintaining a machine including a cavity is provided. The system includes a pilot apparatus including an insertion end and a steering end opposite the insertion end. The insertion end is positionable within the machine such that the pilot apparatus defines a path through the machine. The system also includes a steering interface configured to steer the insertion end relative to the machine. The system further includes a service apparatus for use in maintaining the machine. The service apparatus is configured to move along the path defined by the pilot apparatus.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système pour l'entretien d'une machine comprenant une cavité. Le système comprend un appareil pilote comprenant une extrémité d'insertion et une extrémité de direction opposée à l'extrémité d'insertion. L'extrémité d'insertion peut être positionnée à l'intérieur de la machine de telle sorte que l'appareil pilote définit un trajet à travers la machine. Le système comprend également une interface de direction configurée pour diriger l'extrémité d'insertion par rapport à la machine. Le système comprend en outre un appareil de service pour l'entretien de la machine. L'appareil de service est configuré pour se déplacer le long du trajet défini par l'appareil pilote.
