Aries Industries has created new technology for inspection and maintenance of underground infrastructure.

The self-propelled Wolverine 2.0 Cutting System, developed by Waukesha-based Aries Industries, can operate in pipes ranging from 6 to 18 inches.

The electric Wolverine 2.0 features advanced ergonomic fingertip control, and the ability to cut through materials with maximum speed and precision. Its linearly adjustable speed and axis movement offer unmatched maneuverability, coupled with a compact profile and all-wheel drive to navigate tough terrain.

“We are extremely proud to introduce the Wolverine 2.0 Cutting System, which was designed and built by Aries. This cutting system offers our customers unparalleled capabilities for underground pipe rehabilitation, lateral reinstatement and sectional repair,” said Larry Brown, president and CEO of Aries Industries, in a statement. “This product combines power, durability, and extreme accuracy with simultaneous joystick commands. We designed the Wolverine 2.0 to navigate and cut through even the most challenging materials.”

The Wolverine 2.0 includes a camera that uses fixed lens with field-replaceable glass, a dual joystick controller that uses CANbus technology with touch screen display and integrated DVR and on-screen-display, and a built-in lens wiper and scraper to keep the camera clear while in the pipe.

Founded in 1985, Aries Industries is a manufacturer of durable video pipeline inspection and rehabilitation systems, plus data management software, to meet the challenges of underground infrastructure and environmental applications.
