Evolve Raybotix supplies automated disinfection robots

The company has been conducting demonstrations online as well as socially distanced at client premises to showcase the machines

Evolve Raybotix is supplying automated disinfection robots developed by its parent company specifically to tackle Covid-19.

The UV-C Ozone disinfection robots use UV-C light supported by an ozone generating function to disinfect areas. These robots come in three sizes - named SOL, EOS and NEO - for different sectors and spaces.

The automated machines map surroundings and use a combination of UV-C light and ozone to kill 99.9 percent of microorganisms on all surfaces by destroying their DNA structures, the company says. Cleaning times can be six minutes. The company also claims the machines have minimal operating costs and are environmentally friendly.

Evolve Raybotics director Amin Farah said: “We’re proud to be the only UK supplier of these unique disinfection robots. Our parent company worked hard to develop a practical and powerful solution to the pandemic, and the result is a game changer for businesses and organisations needing to swiftly disinfect their premises. Our robots provide a safe and thorough way to ensure peace of mind for staff and customers and have been in high demand here in the UK. We’re receiving an increasing number of enquiries as word spreads about what these robots can do.”

Enzo Catenacci, the co-founder of Raybotics NewCo and business development chief officer of Purity Group, of which Autognity is part, added: “When the pandemic hit, we talked about how we, as a well-resourced organisation, felt obliged to use our skills in engineering – inventing something new to contain the biological risk.

Martin Morgan of Morgans Hotel Swansea said : “When we heard that this technology was available in Swansea, we immediately requested a demonstration as it is an ideal solution to swift sanitisation of hotel rooms on changeover. Guests have full confidence that their room, which is sealed following the disinfection process, has been sanitised to the highest possible standard. We strive to offer a premium service at Morgans Hotel and this demonstrates we are going the extra mile to restore public confidence in the hospitality sector.”

These disinfecting robots are being distributed exclusively in the UK via Evolve Raybotix, based in the ILS2 at Swansea University.
