The Talpa FSR 1330 is designed for pipe diameters from 130mm and can be adapted for pipes with a maximum diameter of 300mm by spreading the wheels and adding extra weight.
Key to how wide the range of uses a robot can be put to is the extent of its freedom of movement and thus its ability to reach every area within its field of operation. Freedom of movement is measured in so-called degrees of freedom. Just like the Talpa FSR 1330, the Talpa FSR 2060 has six degrees of freedom. It can thus reach every point within any three-dimensional space.
The Talpa FSR is controlled by joystick via the Schwalm digital controls. Control is linear, meaning that speed and acceleration react directly 1:1 to the position of the joystick.
The Talpa FSR 1330 is equipped with a powerful LED spotlight and a high-resolution CCD colour camera. The camera’s lens can be cleaned by remote control via an integrated cleaning device.
The robot holds a stable position within the sewer pipe without having to be additionally wedged or secured for its milling work. The robot's substantial weight and its low centre of gravity give it good surface grip. The Talpa FSR 1330 can be tilted to either side by more than 45 degrees through its longitudinal axis without tipping over.

The tool attachments – milling heads, grinders and brushes – are attached to the robot via a universal connection thread located on the pneumatic motors. Schwalm has developed special milling tools for the robots. Standard tools can also be used without any problem.
