At the RO-KA-TECH, the international trade fair for pipe and sewer technology, we presented well-tried and new products in the field of professional sewer inspection and rehabilitation technology. Among other things, 7 vehicles equipped with everything that IBAK and IBAK Robotics have to offer were on show in an exhibition space with a total area of 685 m².
With the PANORAMO SI 4K, we exhibited for the first time an Ultra HD system for manholes. This can be installed in a vehicle or used as a battery-operated portable system. With the mobile 360° camera technology, the interior of hard-to-access manholes can now also be 100% scanned and viewed with 4K resolution.
Besides our central focal point in hall 2, we were very pleased about the large number of visitors to our second stand in Baltic ambience. There, everything revolved around our mobile equipment such as the push rod camera systems MiniLite and MicroLite, the compact camera tractor system MainLite and the electric cutter robot NanoGator. With North German catering from a Bullibus we looked back on our original vehicle outfitting configurations from the 1950s and thus on the more than 70 years of our company history.
There was also technology to touch and try out in the open-air ground: in a course of pipes, we demonstrated pipe run measurement with 3D-GeoSense, IKAS evolution software and the NanoGator for lateral applications which cut through various test pipes and materials.
Sewer Repair Systems
Founded in 1945 as a small consulting engineering firm, IBAK is today the biggest manufacturer and supplier of pipe inspection systems and is at the same time the oldest company in the trade. With our more than 70 years of experience and the extremely high demands we place on our products – and also on ourselves – we provide optimum benefit to our customers. More than 350 people work day for day at our locations in Kiel and our branch offices in Krefeld, Georgsmarienhütte/Osnabrück, Durmersheim and Illerrieden/Ulm to ensure that this stays this way.
IBAK products work in the dark, but their success is visible. Throughout the world operators use the innovative sewer inspection system by this Kiel-based market leader. IBAK's presence is felt all over the globe.
When the company founder Helmut Hunger set up his business "Ingenieur Büro Atlas Kiel" in 1945, he did not give a thought to going global. It was his personal quest to develop perfectly functioning precision instruments. Even today IBAK is just as passionate about meeting those targets. Finding innovative and user-friendly solutions is always the company's prime objective. It thus comes as no surprise that the IBAK organization, after many years of research and development, presented the first sewer TV inspection system in the world in 1957.
From human to human
Products by IBAK are technological masterpieces. And with one in six of our over 350 colleagues working in research and development, that is no wonder. Our highly experienced engineers, the continuous exchange of ideas with customers and the well-established cooperation with universities and professional bodies all ensure the development of trend-setting technologies and their conversion into practical designs. The result is that IBAK systems are powerful, durable, user-friendly, low-maintenance, high-tech solutions. Quality shows What started in Kiel is now well known throughout the world. Just as every year Kiel welcomes the world for its "Kieler Woche" – the biggest sailing event in the world – IBAK sets its course for more than 40 countries. All IBAK products have one thing in common: they provide 'made in Germany' quality. All system components as well as the hardware and software are developed, produced, assembled and tested by IBAK. Relevant standards, such as ISO, DIN, all EC Directives as well as ATEX and IECEx certificates of quality, constitute merely the minimum requirements for us.
Count on IBAK
With their high quality standards, IBAK products are always a safe investment. Despite the exceptional characteristics of our products, economic factors have always been decisive. Protect the environment Just as every department of IBAK is governed by a strict environmental management system to protect natural resources, so also do IBAK's inspection systems contribute to environmental protection. IBAK systems detect damage in fresh water pipes and sewers, thus helping to protect our valuable drinking water for the future.
The extraordinary driving experience
When talking about innovation, that is where the PEGASUS HD camera, with both its fully HD high-resolution and the brilliant picture it produces, as well as the digital PANORAMO sewer inspection system shine brightest. Driving through the world of sewers with the PANORAMO is a unique 3D experience. Analysis of the entire inspection data is not carried out in the inspection vehicle on-site as was previously the case. Instead it is analysed in the comfort of the office, although the feeling of working with a pan and tilt camera in the pipe remains.
