READ THE RELEASE IN SPANISH

June 21, 2021—MFE Mexico is now an authorized reseller of Flyability’s Elios and Elios 2, the world’s first collision-tolerant drones.

Mexico’s leading provider of NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) equipment recently added Flyability’s indoor drones to its list of offerings for industrial inspections. Through the partnership, Flyability joins several other major manufacturers of NDT equipment offered by MFE Mexico, including Olympus, GE, Thermal Scientific, and MFE Enterprises.

“We are very pleased to be growing our relationship with MFE as an official Flyability partner and reseller,” says Patrick Thévoz, CEO of Flyability. “The team at MFE are experts in inspection technology, with a strong focus on providing high-quality inspection solutions to their customers across various industries. We could not be more excited to be partnering with MFE Mexico.”

In industries that require regular inspections, such as Oil & Gas, Power Generation, and Chemicals, the Elios 2 is quickly becoming the go-to solution for internal inspections. Using the Elios 2, inspectors have helped realize significant savings and decreased downtimes for asset owners, reducing inspection costs by as much as 90%. Inspectors have also significantly improved safety with the Elios 2 by using it to reduce or even eliminate the need for inspectors to enter confined spaces in order to collect visual data.

“MFE Mexico is excited to be partnering with Flyability to bring the world’s best indoor drones into internal inspections here in Mexico,” says Fabian Valenzuela, General Manager of MFE Mexico. “They are the leader in collision-tolerant drones and we’re proud to be able to offer their technology to our customers. The Elios 2 has the potential to significantly reduce downtimes while also improving safety for internal inspections, and we can’t wait to share these benefits with our clients.”

The Elios 2 indoor drone is safely contained within a carbon fiber cage, which gives inspectors the freedom to operate it in a variety of environments, as well as complete darkness using its LED lighting and thermal imagery. The cage helps make the drone collision tolerant, so that it can collide and continue flying. This feature combined with the high quality of the drone’s visual data allows inspectors to conduct inspections remotely in tight, confined spaces that might otherwise pose a safety risk for human entry.

Flyability’s partnership with MFE Mexico further strengthens MFE’s significant presence throughout North America. As the top provider of inspection equipment in Mexico, MFE Mexico now has a robust array of offerings to fully support any equipment need its customers might have.

MFE México se asocia con Flyability para revolucionar las inspecciones internas

21 de junio de 2021: MFE México ahora es un revendedor autorizado de Elios y Elios 2 de Flyability, los primeros drones tolerantes a colisiones del mundo.

El proveedor líder de México de equipos NDT (Ensayos no destructivos) agregó recientemente los drones para interiores de Flyability, a su lista de ofertas para inspecciones industriales. A través de la asociación, Flyability se une a varios otros fabricantes importantes de equipos NDT ofrecidos por MFE México, incluyendo a Olympus, GE, Thermal Scientific y MFE Enterprises.

"Estamos muy contentos de ampliar nuestra relación con MFE como socio y revendedor oficial de Flyability", dice Patrick Thévoz, director ejecutivo de Flyability. “El equipo de MFE son expertos en tecnología de inspección, con un fuerte enfoque en brindar soluciones de inspección de alta calidad a sus clientes en diversas industrias. No podríamos estar más emocionados de asociarnos con MFE México”.

En industrias que requieren inspecciones periódicas, como las de petróleo y gas, generación de energía y productos químicos, el Elios 2 se está convirtiendo rápidamente en la solución de referencia para las inspecciones internas. Con el Elios 2, los inspectores han ayudado a lograr ahorros significativos y disminuido los tiempos de inactividad para los propietarios de activos, reduciendo los costos de inspección hasta en un 90%. Los inspectores también han mejorado significativamente la seguridad con el Elios 2, al usarlo para reducir o incluso eliminar la necesidad de que los inspectores ingresen a espacios confinados para recopilar datos visuales.

"MFE México se complace en asociarse con Flyability, para llevar los mejores drones de interior del mundo a las inspecciones internas aquí en México", dice Fabián Valenzuela, Gerente General de MFE México. “Son el líder en drones tolerantes a colisiones y estamos orgullosos de poder ofrecer su tecnología a nuestros clientes. El Elios 2 tiene el potencial de reducir significativamente los tiempos de inactividad y al mismo tiempo mejorar la seguridad de las inspecciones internas, y estamos ansiosos por compartir estos beneficios con nuestros clientes".

El dron para interiores Elios 2, está contenido de manera segura dentro de una jaula de fibra de carbono, lo que brinda a los inspectores la libertad de operarlo en una variedad de entornos, así como una oscuridad total, utilizando su iluminación LED e imágenes térmicas. La jaula ayuda a que el dron sea tolerante a las colisiones, de modo que pueda colisionar y seguir volando. Esta característica, combinada con la alta calidad de los datos visuales del dron, permite a los inspectores realizar inspecciones de forma remota en espacios reducidos y confinados, que, de otro modo, podrían representar un riesgo para la seguridad de la entrada de personas.

La asociación de Flyability con MFE México, fortalece aún más la importante presencia de MFE en toda América del Norte. Como el principal proveedor de equipos de inspección en México, MFE México ahora tiene una sólida gama de ofertas para respaldar completamente cualquier necesidad de equipo que puedan tener sus clientes.
