Mini-Cam steps up innovation drive

LDC portfolio company Mini-Cam, the pipeline inspection equipment specialist, has unveiled three major additions to its product range as the firm steps up its innovation drive. 

Its crawler and push camera systems are used to record and transmit footage during inspections by clean water and wastewater companies and their contractors, as well as oil and gas, construction and engineering firms.

Mini-Cam recently expanded its research and development facilities after taking 6,000 sq ft of additional space following backing from private equity firm LDC.

The product launches coincide with industry exhibition No-Dig Live, which is taking place at Peterborough Arena.

Mini-Cam’s new SOLOPro+ pipeline video inspection system has a host of new features designed to improve the user experience for efficient inspections and accurate reporting.

The new CRP90 Proteus Crawler is Mini-Cam’s smallest crawler to date at 260mm long and 80mm wide, and it features many new technological innovations.

Meanwhile Mini-Can has introduced the CAM028 Pan & Rotate Zoom Camera. It is the latest addition to range of Mini-Cam’s cameras developed for use with the Proteus system.

Mini-Cam managing director Nigel Wilson said: “Our mission is simple: to design and build intelligent, reliable and affordable crawlers and push cameras with innovative features.

“We constantly research our customers’ requirements for inspections in challenging environments, develop solutions and integrate them into our systems.”

Mini-Cam, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, distributes its products to 31 countries worldwide.
