Chicago Pile 5 DAWP
Category: Robotics > Dismantling and Retrieval > Bespoke System
Reference # : Model No :
Bespoke design. Uses Schilling manipulators. The DAWP system was used to perform mechanical dismantlement of the radioactive reactor and bio-shield structures. The DAWP manipulated standard, commercially available tools (i.e., circular saws, jackhammers, etc.) using two Schilling Titan III hydraulic, teleoperated manipulator arms controlled from a remote location into the reactor assembly using the facility’s polar crane.
The DAWP consists of a platform base, two Schilling Titan III six degrees of freedom (DOF) hydraulically driven manipulators, a remote viewing system, a lighting system, a tool control system, and a tether that supplies the hydraulics, power, and control signals to drive the DAWP functions.
Size:Very Large (>100kg/200lb, >120cm/48in)
