The remote replacement of blanket segments inside the vacuum vessel of a fusion reactor is probably the most complex maintenance task. Experimental activities have been undertaken to select appropriate handling devices and procedures in order to assess the design of the components handled and to review specific technical issues such as kinematics and dynamics performance, trajectory planning and control and sensors requirements. Work has been performed in the Robertino facility where two handling concepts have been tested at one-third scale.
