Fulcrum serve industries where remote access via robotic technology not only provides a safer approach to inspection and intervention, but a more cost effective solution than conventional services can offer. A leader in Australian robotics inspection and testing service providers, Fulcrum are the first company with the ability to mobilise multiple unmanned systems and sensors in the air across land and the sea. We are your complete solution to robotic inspection and sensing services.
Fulcrum perform submerged inspections and works using ROV’s, terrestrial pipeline inspections using crawler tractors and deploy Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) that perform industrial aerial inspection, thermal imaging, photography, 3D modelling, LiDAR & mapping.
Engineering - Providing data for Civil Engineering projects is one of Fulcrum’s core businesses.
As well as using robotics to inspect and manage specific assets, Fulcrum also has experience working with asset management clients for large scale and ongoing asset monitoring, maintenance and compliance programs. Fulcrum people ASME Plant Inspector qualified staff with decades of experience.
Most of our clients provide Fulcrum with an asset register and inspection specification and let us manage the inspection works on an ongoing basis, either capturing the data for their own analysis or where appropriate independently reporting and highlighting any issues needing attention. Fulcrum’s in house online inspection data platform’s can be used to host the visual inspection imagery and 3D models, and we can also use or integrate with your own internal or 3rd party asset management systems.
We have offered aerial services for many years. Both Fulcrum and our pilots are CASA accredited exceeding 1000 hours combined flight time we have the experience required to operate in challenging environments. Our equipment is the best and latest on offer we are licensed to 25kg and able to fly at night. We fly with only the best sensors including thermal, optical, LiDAR and multispectral. We are also a leader UAV based application of products such as seeding in forestry coupes and herbicides in agriculture and the utility sectors.
Fulcrum has been working with major mining and quarry companies for many years. We have established long term service contracts with clients and pride ourselves on our reliable and accurate data. With third party audited ISO certification in Quality, Safety and Environmental systems you can engage us with confidence.
Fulcrum has extensive experience working in major ports to facilitate asset inspection and monitoring.
Having completed many projects in and around ports it has become clear that there are many opportunities to enhance port operations and asset management.
Fulcrum has been working with land developers and their consultants to solve their data needs since 2013. With a variety of drones at our disposal we operate safely within the urban environment.
We have considerable experience in monitoring energy station assets having. We use drones, laser, thermaland corona scanners and other remote tools to efficiently capture data safely and efficiently. We have demonstrated that drones offer considerable advantages compared to traditional inspection approaches.
Our team also have experience in power transmission and distribution monitoring with skilled drone operators trained in working in high voltage environments.
The benefits of our industrial drone survey and inspection include a detailed high-resolution photographic record of the asset condition including any defects, the ability to access hard to reach areas, reduced downtime and reduced safety risks associated with such inspections. Our in-house software too assists with data analysis and integration with asset management software. We are also able to intergrate to SAP or other solutions through custom API development.
Our specialised drones can also be used in confined spaces, although there are also challenges when using drones in confined spaces, such as lighting and propeller turbulence our experienced pilots are highly trained in these potentially hazardous environments.

We manage a vast array of assets to provide their potable water and wastewater services. Robotic survey and inspection services offer huge time and cost efficiencies, as well as quantifiable safety benefits by removing the need for personnel to gain access to locations.
Focusing on the outputs, Fulcrum has experience with data capture using drones, submersibles and remote bathymetric survey boats.
Our Industrial Drones are the perfect solution for inspecting tall or inaccessible assets such as communication towers.
Over the past 7+ years drones have become established as an integral tool in the kit for surveyors. With the capability to capture data accurately, safely and efficiently, the technology has been widely adopted. The perceived simplicity however has seen many questionable practices that have led to poor data outcomes.
Since 2014 we have been leading the charge on providing quality drone survey data capture services. Our comprehensive ISO 9001 certified quality assurance checks and processes give our clients confidence in reliable and repeatable data.
We work with a range of survey companies providing cost-effective aerial data capture services. Some survey companies have their own drone resources but prefer to commission us to complete the larger projects. Other survey firms prefer to engage us to undertake all drone-related tasks whereby not taking on the technical, commercial and financial risks themselves.
We offer photogrammetric and LiDAR capability and have worked through all the issues associated with data volumes and format compatibility for survey clients.
Council and other local government agencies have been at the core of Fulcrums work since 2014. We offer flying and data hosting services but also support local government in developing their own in-house drone programs.
Whether you need a project flown, would like to implement your own drone program, or are seeking a data hosting solution, we have the skills to assist. Contact us to discuss your needs or to organise a senior Fulcrum staff member to present at your local council staff.
