Italian robotics manufacturer Gerotto Federico has been investing for over 20 years in R&D to identify and propose technological solutions that could meet the increasingly strict requirements of industrial maintenance. Gerotto has always worked to ensure that cleaning operations are effective and efficient, putting operators’ safety at first.

‘We have always been convinced,’ says Alessandro Gerotto, general manager of the company, ‘that the market benefits from fair and transparent competition between manufacturers. This drives technological improvement in the sector, to the benefit of customers and players. As a manufacturing company we work both on standard projects and on new solutions for custom projects, but always using our decades of know-how and our technological assets.

‘In recent months the market has been hit by non-transparent and misleading information about our products and technology from companies that are not manufacturers but customers and users of our equipment.

‘I want to reassure our customers: Gerotto has never transferred its know-how to third parties, nor has ever authorised third parties to claim any exclusive rights to its products or intellectual property. Only Gerotto is entitled to produce, sell or license its robots: these technologies are part of the company’s assets and it is our intention to defend Gerotto’s paternity and Gerotto’s industrial exploitation rights, both to stop – even by taking legal action – any unlawful appropriation of Intellectual Property rights, and to obtain compensation for the damages caused by those who have engaged in illegitimate and improper conduct.

We are for an open and competitive market, that at the same time would remain transparent and in compliance with the rules’

Gerotto’s robotic technology development 

Developed since the early 2000s, Gerotto’s range of robots has grown over time thanks to a proactive approach to the market. The ability to work in close contact with customers and operators has allowed Gerotto to always develop innovative solutions, designed to respond to new operational needs, created to meet new challenges and to provide development opportunities for the market.

The Lombrico series (born in 2002), compact and powerful, is ideal for cleaning basins, pipes, tanks and confined spaces, even at risk of explosion (ATEX); the Bull and Mini Bull series, designed in 2019, works in underwater environments for removing sediment and sludge inside tanks; the Dozer is the specific model for cleaning under conveyor belts; the Easy Dozer is the mini wheeled loader suitable for removing debris and rubble in construction sites and tanks; the Gatto is a mini crawler excavator for removing materials. Finally, the fuel tank cleaner (FTC) was studied and designed in 2016 specifically for cleaning underground fuel tanks using a high-pressure washing system.
