Vertidrive M3 grit-blasting

Vertidrive M3 Grit-blasting

The VertiDrive M3 Grit-blasting robot was designed for the removal of coatings on vertical, horizontal and overhead steel surfaces. This includes storage tanks, ship hulls and any other large steel structure. It is remotely controlled for operator safety, comfort and productivity. 

The unit can be equipped with a one-blast, two-blast or three-blast nozzle. The nozzles can be adjusted to the most efficient angle and distance to the surface. Connected to three blast pots, an air flow of 40 cubic metres ensures the fastest blasting operation on the market. The blast nozzles are mounted on the reciprocating boom to ensure a clean and effective result in front of the robot of approximately 160 cm with each stroke. The unit adheres to the wall with permanent magnets in the drive assembly. The lightweight construction and quick (dis)connect systems reduce the assembly time to approximately ten minutes. Because the robot is controlled remotely, there is no need for crane assistance or cherry pickers.

Vertidrive M3 Grit-blasting in a nutshell


Savings and safety go hand-in-hand

Ladders, aerial work platforms and scaffolding are no longer required with the application of our robot, as it can easily drive vertically, horizontally and even upside down against steel surfaces.


Easily change applications in just a few minutes, which allows you to change from Dry-blasting to Washing without wasting any time. Easy to use UHP water jetting, wet blasting, camera inspection, NDT, induction or any other desired application.

Proven capability

The longest running model with a worldwide track record. Series production for this model started as early as 2013, while development continued to give us the model we have today. 

Enthusiastic users deploy the robot across theworld for various jobs such as UHP Water Jetting, Washing, Dry Blasting, Wet Blasting and camera inspection, but the possibilities are still expanding.
