Our technologies are constantly pushing the limits on subsea intervention operations. There are no developments that are too challenging or complex for us to navigate. Schilling Robotics continues to revolutionize deepwater productivity – enabling safe and more challenging subsea developments through our advanced and industry leading robotics technologies.

Schilling Robotics ​

A Pioneer in the Robotics Industry

The subsea industry relies on Schilling Robotics’ equipment every day to execute subsea operations. The Athena Tooling Interchange System is Schilling Robotics’ next-generation advanced tooling solution providing unprecedented productivity and reliability.

The Athena system is based on the Atlas manipulator design and can be installed as an upgrade to an existing Atlas, or as an entire system. It is suited to work with today’s highest-performing vehicles under the most demanding conditions. Athena is a position-controlled hydraulic tooling interchange system. The tool exchange wrist transfers power, communications, and hydraulic fluid to attached tools. This enables continuous operations and execution of project tasks without returning to deck for reconfiguration of tooling, maximizing operational efficiency and productivity.
